Kia Niro EV leads firm's electric vehicle charge

В Сеть просочились снимки нового электрокроссовера от KIA

The new HMI also allows drivers to "log-in" to the vehicle using face and voice recognition thanks to technology developed with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Kia expects that to be sufficient for around 238 miles of range.

Alongside Kia's new concept, the brand will reveal a range of new in-car features and innovations at CES 2018.

In fact, with so many carmakers pledging a raft of new EV cars in the years to follow, surely we now have to think about the various noises each will have to make?

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. Speaking of which, an all-new, hydrogen-powered vehicle will appear in 2020, says Kia. If the system spots a pedestrian or cyclist, it can fire off an alarm sound targeted specifically at that person. But don't expect the electronic display panels found on the CES concept which would allow the Niro show auto to communicate with pedestrians and other drivers.

Emerging from the Kia design studio in Korea, the design of the Niro EV Concept dispenses with a conventional "grille" on the nose.

The Niro show auto is fitted with an Active Pedestrian Warning System, which alerts drivers to pedestrians or cyclists crossing in front of the vehicle.

The second page makes clear that donations will be used by Gabby's father, Kyle Barrett, to lay his daughter to rest. Diaz, 24, and Fields, 28, are suspected in the death of her 4-year-old daughter Gabby Barrett.

Power comes from a 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-polymer battery pack and a 150-kW electric motor. The interior, meanwhile, is envisioned with "greater user interaction with new technologies and features".

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. "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.

On the self-driving front, Kia announced plans to begin Smart City autonomous vehicle testing in 2021.

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

The Kia Niro EV boasts an evolution of the current Niro's design, with fresh front and rear light treatments and an illuminated "Niro EV" logo on the rear bumper.
