Really, there wasn’t much excitement and surprise at this year’s New York Auto Show. Thank God, Kia spiced things up a little by introducing the HabaNiro concept.
This fully electric vehicle from Korea boasts extremely futuristic looks complete with butterfly wing doors and rugged 20-inch wheels. It’s powered by two electric motors and offers a range of 480 kilometres.
The Kia HabaNiro concept can also drive by itself thanks to a Level 5 autonomous mode. The interior still features a steering wheel so you can resume control of the vehicle at any time. And I hope you like red because it’s all over the place.
Don’t expect to see anything like that at your local Kia dealer anytime soon, of course. The HabaNiro is merely a design study that shows the brand’s vision of the future of electric vehicles.
And you know how marketing-obsessed automakers like to invent new vehicle segments? Well, Kia is describing the HabaNiro as an all-electric “Everything Car.” I wonder what they will come up with next…
