CES 2018: Kia Niro EV blows audience with its range claims

Kia Niro EV shoots for 200-plus-mile range

On the tech front, however, Kia is eyeing to show off its state-of-the-art human-machine interface and an advanced new motion lighting system that will feature on the Niro EV. The Niro EV Concept suggests a driving range of 238 miles (383 kilometers), with zero tailpipe emissions.

Penned by Kia's design studio in South Korea, the Niro EV Concept features an aerodynamically-efficient body that's said to allow air to slip over, around, and beneath the vehicle. Plus its new "ACE" strategy will also make its cars more Autonomous, Connected and Eco/Electric.

It's well known that a battery-electric version of the Kia Niro will join the lineup soon, completing a range that now comprises the Niro Hybrid and the recently launched plug-in hybrid. If the system spots a pedestrian or cyclist, it can fire off an alarm sound targeted specifically at that person.

To differentiate it from the standard Niro hybrid and Niro plug-in hybrid, the EV Concept replaces the standard grille with an interactive display and slim LED lights. Kia points out that the Niro EV isn't based on Hyundai's Ioniq platform and uses a 204PS electric motor that draws energy from a 64 kWh battery pack.

Kia will present three interactive, cockpit-style exhibits created to show how the company will incorporate new technologies to enhance communication and interaction between occupants and vehicles.

In addition to the Niro EV, Kia is also showcasing a number of advanced auto technologies at CES, including what it claims is the first in-car 5G connection.

The Kia Niro EV concept has debuted at this week's Consumer Electronics Show, where the automaker also revealed plans to roll out connected cars, more EVs, and a fuel cell vehicle.

Back to the Niro EV Concept, we can see how the prototype has just about the same design credentials as the regular Niro, with some aerodynamic streamlining here and there. "At CES we will share our strategy and vision for future mobility, and exhibit a range of advanced technologies that our customers can look forward to", said Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, Vice Chairman and Head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Center. These "Smart City" autonomous vehicles will commence testing later in 2021.

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

Last but not least, Kia is bringing its WiBLE car-sharing service to new destinations this year.
