  • В Сеть просочились снимки нового электрокроссовера от KIA

The Kia Niro is a compact crossover SUV that debuted in hybrid form in 2016.

Connected cars are also part of Kia's long-term plans. "Due to launch in 2020, this FCEV will spearhead Kia's efforts to realize a zero-emission future for mobility", said Woong-chul Yang, vice chairman and head of Kia R&D Centre. That fuel-cell vehicle is due to come out in 2020.

The Kia Niro EV Concept features a number of advanced driver assistance systems, though not all will make it into the production model, notably its prototype autonomous driving capabilities. As part of this, the manufacturer also aims to have a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle on the road by 2020.

For Kia, the concept vehicle unveiled this week at CES in Las Vegas is called the Niro EV Concept. Since there's no need for engine cooling, the grille is replaced by an interactive display panel. The system is front-facing cameras, object recognition technology and speakers mounted on the face of the vehicle.

The cabin features a wrap-around design and mixes silver, grey, and bronze colors. A powerful 150-kW (204-hp) electric motor is fed by a high-capacity 64-kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, allowing the Niro EV Concept a driving range of 238 miles (383 kilometers).

Kia has adopted what it calls a "boundless" vision of future mobility, wherein the auto is no longer just a means of transportation, and developed the "ACE" action plan, which involves producing more Autonomous, Connected and Electrified cars over the course of the next decade.

Well, we can understand this decision from Kia because there is not much to say about the performance of the Niro EV. There are cameras and speakers mounted on the front of the auto.

Along with the concept auto reveal, Kia Motors also presented its "Boundless for all" vision, which paints a future with infinite transportation and mobility opportunities.

Alongside its new technologies, Kia has revealed plans to roll-out its "WiBLE" car-sharing service - launched in Korea a year ago - to new regions from 2018, starting with Europe.

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.
