Kia Niro EV Concept Achieves 238 Miles on a Charge

В Сеть просочились снимки нового электрокроссовера от KIA

Kia has not officially revealed the upcoming all-electric concept vehicle's identity, however, photos accompanying the automaker's announcement seemingly confirm that it will be the Niro EV. Designers also installed new headlights, a sportier front bumper, and a redesigned rear end with "clean and sharp trailing edges allowing air to flow more easily off the back of the vehicle". "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. The new Niro EV Concept is expected to be able to cover up to 238 miles (383 kilometers) on a single charge. As part of this, the manufacturer also aims to have a hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle on the road by 2020. Revisions to reflect its new powertrain type include the lack of a traditional front grille - replaced by an interactive panel that displays text or graphics.

Last previous year, Kia Motors posted global sales of 2,746,188 units, decreasing 7.8 per cent from 2016. To assist with the grill in communicating with pedestrians, the Niro EV concept is also equipped with an Active Pedestrian Warning System.

Focusing on the concept first, the fully-electric compact SUV is powered by a powertrain that has been earmarked for future EVs from Kia.

Inside, there's a new wraparound design to the dashboard, finished in silver, grey, and bronze. The idea behind this is to let users at the front and back listen to different music if they like without disturbing each other or without having to use headphones. The all-electric Niro will use the same lithium-ion battery pack and electric motor as the Ioniq Electric, which provides an on-paper range of 174 miles. Inside, the car's modern interior gets backlit perforated leather trim and Kia's new HMI infotainment system, which features face and voice-recognition technology to improve security. As a matter of fact, a virtual reality simulator is now at Kia's booth at CES, giving participants the opportunity to live the "connected car" experience, which allows cars to communicate with each for improved safety, all in real time.
