KIA Motors is all set to showcase its take on an electric vehicle with a new EV concept that will make its international debut at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2018, set to begin next week in Las Vegas.
The concept will feature technical wizardry like a ‘Human Machine Interface (HMI)’ and ‘motion graphic’ lighting system that will pave a path for future electric cars to incorporate the technology. Many more of the features of the concept car are set to be showcased as well. Kia will introduce three new cockpit style concepts that will define vehicle and passenger interaction on its vehicles and will feature the world’s first in-car 5G connectivity. Kia will also be presenting its ‘Beyond Autonomous Driving’ demonstrations that will give an insight into the future plans for autonomous mobility for its vehicles.
Speaking about Kia’s foray into autonomous driving technologies, the vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Centre Woong-cheol Yang said, “Virtual reality, self-driving cars, and full vehicle connectivity were all once considered technologies of the distant future. As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers. At CES we will share our strategy and vision for future mobility, and exhibit a range of advanced technologies that our customers can look forward to.”
