- New images revealed of Kia’s all-electric concept car
- To feature typical Kia design traits
- Concept will make its world debut at Motor Show
Kia has unveiled new images of its new all-electric concept car, due to be revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This concept is the company’s first pure electric four-door passenger car.
Kia says that it is designed to not sit within the industry’s predefined vehicle categories and that it coherently draws together elements of an SUV, a family sedan and a spacious crossover. Reinterpreting Kia’s typical ‘tiger nose’ grille, the concept features a bold new illuminated ‘tiger mask’ that encircles the headlamp units to create a distinctive and recognizable lighting motif.
A single sheet of glass is used for both the windscreen and roof, flowing from the base of the A-pillar and over the cabin to create a sky-window, before tapering into a double-bubble over the rear passenger compartment. The rakishness of the car’s high shoulders and narrow glasshouse is further enhanced by an illustrated streak that draws the eye from the A-pillar to the C-pillar.
This new concept will be unveiled on March 5 at the Geneva Motor Show. Stay tuned to CarWale for more on this and all the other major unveilings at Geneva.
