  • CES 2018: Kia Unveils Niro EV Concept With 383 Km Range

In fact, with so many carmakers pledging a raft of new EV cars in the years to follow, surely we now have to think about the various noises each will have to make?

He further said, the FCEV is due for launch in 2020 and "will spearhead Kia's efforts to realise a zero-emission future for mobility".

A production-ready all-electric version would complete the set and see the company move closer towards Kia and sister brand Hyundai's vow to offer 31 electrified vehicles by 2020. A compact SUV that's fully electric, it's been designed with aerodynamic slipperiness in mind, though also serves as a test bed for some of Kia's other technologies in progress.

For Kia, the concept vehicle unveiled this week at CES in Las Vegas is called the Niro EV Concept.

The Niro also debuts a new pedestrian warning system to counteract its silent propulsion that utilises cameras, object recognition and speakers to sound a warning the individual of the car's presence.

Consider the Niro EV Kia's signal to get into the plug-in mainstream when the toned down production version goes on sale in the second half of 2018. The interactive display panel which replaced the grille, meanwhile, can be used to flash up messages.

This Niro electric version is another step toward bringing to fruition Kia's ambitious plan to market 16 hybrid or electric vehicles by 2025, including a hydrogen-fueled auto in 2020.

Kia says the goal is "an innate sense of space and calm" inside the vehicle, which is enhanced by "soft shades of silver, grey, and bronze" on every piece of the interior. Kia says it could also use the system to boost passenger comfort in future production cars.

Should the system detect a pedestrian or cyclist crossing in front of the vehicle, the speakers sound an alert targeted specifically at that person, warning them of the car's presence.

The electric powertrain delivers power from a 64kWh battery pack to the 201bhp electric motor which is enough for a 238 mile range and a 115mile splash and dash in fifteen minutes charge.

"Virtual reality, self-driving cars and full vehicle connectivity were all once considered technologies of the distant future".
