Kia Niro EV Concept Plugs Into CES

The concept is part of Kia's strategy to offer a total of 16 electrified vehicles by 2025, including a fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) in 2020.

Finally, Kia is showing off some other interesting technologies at CES, many of which will be demonstrated in interactive Niro EV concept interiors.

Well, we can understand this decision from Kia because there is not much to say about the performance of the Niro EV. Dr Woong-chul Yung, the head of Kia's R&D centre, called it a manifesto "where everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the infinite value that future mobility will bring".

However, he said only one cornerback on the team needed to grow up and later added, "But that first pick. he's a cancer ". The news safety Landon Collins apologized for calling Apple a cancer in a NY radio interview Tuesday.

According to the automaker, the EV concept will feature a highly efficient battery-electric powertrain, a never-before-seen human machine interface (HMI) and a new "motion graphic" lighting system. That fuel-cell auto is due to come out in 2020.

In terms of mechanical credentials, the Niro EV Concept comes with a ready for production series high-capacity 64kWh lithium-polymer battery pack hooked to a single 150 kW motor - and Kia mentions the powertrain is part of a next-generation unit that will be used in the near future for series produced vehicles.

Another cockpit showcases a feature that allows rear passengers to listen to different music from front passengers, made possible by noise-cancellation technology creating two separate zones in the vehicle. There are cameras and speakers mounted on the front of the auto. It has been replaced by interactive display panel which can show various messages such as "Hello, CES". For example, the Niro EV Concept could theoretically limit its maximum power if it recognized a teen driver behind the wheel.

As mention at the start, Kia's "ACE" strategy involves three components, where autonomous involves the company planning to commercialise Level 4 autonomous driving technology.

Next up, connected auto technologies will be a staple in every vehicle segment, with the goal to make every single model a connected auto by 2030.

While still decidedly concept-y, the Kia Niro EV Concept looks like a fairly realistic image of what we can expect from Kia in the near future.
