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.

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.
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.
