"As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers", said Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Center. The automaker says its green line-up will consist of a mixture of different electrified powertrains, from entirely battery-electric through hybrids and even a fuel-cell vehicle. But Kia says this Niro EV Concept showcases significant tech advances and a range of 238 miles - which would put it right up against the Chevrolet Bolt EV and better than a standard Tesla Model 3's range.
Penned by Kia's design studio in South Korea, the Niro EV Concept features an aerodynamically-efficient body that's said to allow air to slip over, around, and beneath the vehicle. The biggest change is at the front where the traditional grille has been replaced by a smooth interactive display panel.
The Eco/Electric plans include a pledge to offer 16 new advanced powertrain vehicles by 2021, comprised of hybrids, plug-in hybrids, EVs and a new fuel-cell electric vehicle, due to go on sale in 2020.
The auto features a next-generation electric powertrain under the hood, including a 150 kW (201 hp) electric motor and a 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack. It is a lightly restyled version of the company's existing Niro hybrid compact SUV.
A new Active Pedestrian Warning System (APWS) builds on the now-de-rigeur combination of front-facing cameras by throwing in object recognition software and speakers mounted at the front of the Niro EV Concept.
Inside, there's a new wraparound design to the dashboard, finished in silver, grey, and bronze.
Kia debuted different cockpits demonstrating technology for the Niro EV concept. The automaker will introduce connected auto technologies across every vehicle segment by 2025, and on all models by 2030.
