‘Boundless for all’: Kia presents vision for future mobility at CES 2018

At the exhibition of consumer electronics CES 2018 in Las Vegas premiere of the prototype KIA Niro EV. The conceptual model is a fully electric crossover capable of connecting to the fifth generation mobile networks and “communicating” with pedestrians. The exterior of the prototype KIA Niro EV was painted in the Korean design studio of the brand. Being executed in futuristic stylistics, the all-terrain vehicle received an aggressive front end with a digital display instead of a radiator grille. Also worth noting the elegant strokes of headlights and brightly expressed on the hood, due to which the muzzle of the crossover looks very harsh. The interactive display instead of the traditional radiator grille is part of the Active Pedestrian Warning System. The complex also includes a front camera with an object recognition function and several speakers that, when a threat occurs, alert pedestrians and cyclists visually or with sounds. Interior Niro EV Concept, executed in a minimalist style, also has many unique features. In particular, the electric parket was equipped with a new interface for a multimedia system, which in the future will debut on the upcoming models of the Korean brand. Management of this complex is carried out from the touch screen and with the help of gestures. In this case, the multimedia can recognize faces and voices of passengers, downloading previously saved personal settings. As for technical characteristics, the prototype is driven by a 204-strong electric motor, drawing power from a set of lithium-polymer batteries with a capacity of 64 kWh. According to the representatives of KIA, the reserve of the concept is about 380 kilometers. In addition to this car at the exhibition, Koreans showed the interior of the future, demonstrating the work of the fifth generation networks, as well as Separate Sound Control System. The latter uses the active noise reduction function and creates two sound waves, thereby allowing passengers to listen to different music in front and behind.
