Kia Niro EV Concept Unveiled at CES in Las Vegas

Going back to the Niro EV Concept, it can clearly be seen that the concept shares a lot of styling similarities with the standard Niro crossover.

Connected cars are also part of Kia's long-term plans.

He further said, the FCEV is due for launch in 2020 and "will spearhead Kia's efforts to realise a zero-emission future for mobility".

After unveiling the new Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid in Los Angeles last fall, the South Korean automaker got to work on a new version of the model.

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 a new Active Pedestrian Warning System, the Niro EV Concept can visually and audibly alert pedestrians or cyclists if the vehicle detects they might come in its path. Kia says it will start Level 4 autonomous vehicle testing in 2021.

The 2019 Niro EV will likely retain the smooth panel that replaces the brand's familiar "tiger nose" grille.

Kia didn't reveal a lot about the Niro EV Concept's "next-generation electric powertrain", beyond saying it used "new production technologies earmarked for near-future EVs from Kia" and that the 64-kwh battery was "paired with a powerful 150-kilowatt [200-horsepower] electric motor". It is a lightly restyled version of the company's existing Niro hybrid compact SUV.

Kia say the Niro EV Concept is a showcase for its new ACE strategy (that's Autonomous, Connected and Eco/Electric), but strip away some of the concept bits and this is the production Niro EV. An Active Pedestrian Warning System on the show auto uses a variety of sensors to spot potential "obstacles" and can sound an alert if a pedestrian walks in front of the vehicle. That panel is created to display information like the battery's charge level.

Kia debuted different cockpits demonstrating technology for the Niro EV concept.

Inside, there's a new wraparound design to the dashboard, finished in silver, grey, and bronze.

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

Kia's human machine interface supports face and voice recognition that allows the auto to recognize who's piloting it, and then adjust the settings to their programmed preferences.
