Kia Niro EV concept debuts at CES with 238 mile driving range

Kia Niro EV Concept

The auto is likely to run on the same EV setup that is on the IONIQ EV so you can expect a similar performance with the vehicle from Kia. Designers also installed new headlights, a sportier front bumper, and a redesigned rear end with "clean and sharp trailing edges allowing air to flow more easily off the back of the auto".

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. Dr Woong-chul Yung, the head of Kia's R&D centre, called it a manifesto "where everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the infinite value that future mobility will bring". Kia's fuel SUV will arrive in 2020. The biggest change is at the front where the traditional grille has been replaced by a smooth interactive display panel. The lights have been shrunk down, courtesy of new ultra-slim lamps.

Also at CES, Kia announced it would offer UVO Agent for the plug-in Niro, Soul EV, plug-in Optima, and K900.

Because the company says it expects the Niro EV to be driven largely in "urban and suburban" usage, so it includes a new pedestrian-warning system that adds outward-pointing speakers to the usual cameras and image-processing technology. If the system spots a pedestrian or cyclist, it can fire off an alarm sound targeted specifically at that person.

The cabin features a wrap-around design and mixes silver, grey, and bronze colors. It features a new HMI, with touch and gesture controls for the HVAC system and a touch-sensitive steering wheel. A digital display shows speed, powertrain, and other trip information.

Arsenal manager Wenger gets three-match ban
Arsenal have named their side and substitutes to tackle Nottingham Forest in an FA Cup tie at the City Ground this afternoon. The Gunners have won three of the last four FA Cups, including last year's 2-1 upset of Chelsea in the final.

Kia has adopted what it calls a "boundless" vision of future mobility, wherein the auto is no longer just a means of transportation, and developed the "ACE" action plan, which involves producing more Autonomous, Connected and Electrified cars over the course of the next decade. Powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), it can track who is approaching and getting into the house, and then selectively control which aspects of control are available to them.

Well, we can understand this decision from Kia because there is not much to say about the performance of the Niro EV.

The electric powertrain delivers power from a 64kWh battery pack to the 201bhp electric motor which is enough for a 238 mile range and a 115mile splash and dash in fifteen minutes charge.

Should the system detect a pedestrian or cyclist crossing in front of the vehicle, the speakers sound an alert targeted specifically at that person, warning them of the car's presence. 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 also announced that it will expand its WiBLE auto sharing service - which launched in Korea a year ago - to select European cities in 2018. That's been running in South Korea since last year, but later this year will be expanded to new regions too.
