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

Kia hasn't given any specific timeline on when the Niro EV will go into production, but we expect a late 2018 arrival. 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". "As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers", said Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Center.

Production model joins Kia hybrid and plug-in later this year. 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.

The first signs of that push for EVs is the Kia Niro EV Concept, making its debut at CES today. Since there's no need for engine cooling, the grille is replaced by an interactive display panel.

The Niro EV is expected on sale later this year and is one of 16 electrified vehicles Kia will launch by 2025. Instead, the Kia Niro EV is created to address several problems that have put off many potential battery-car buyers: range and charging times. A 150 kW (201 hp) receives energy from a 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, which has a claimed driving range of 383 km.

The cabin features a wrap-around design and mixes silver, grey, and bronze colors. The prototype also features a system named Active Pedestrian Warning System, used to alert people of the silent Niro.

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.

Even for players who weren't on the team's last injury report , the bye week carried plenty of value. "He was my hero". Perhaps someone should take that broom and whack Payton over the head with it after he almost cost his team the game.

Inside, the Niro EV gets a new Human Machine Interface (HMI), with control managed by swiping a leather area on the steering wheel, facial recognition log-in, a sound separation system which lets drivers and passengers listen to different audio (parents rejoice) and 5G connectivity.

The Niro is now available as a straight-up hybrid, powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, or as a plug-in hybrid version called the Niro PHEV.
