  • Kia's compact Niro EV concept will have a driving range of 383 kilometres

Inside, the car's modern interior gets backlit perforated leather trim and Kia's new HMI infotainment system, which features face and voice-recognition technology to improve security.

The Kia Niro EV Concept is just that: a not-quite-production version of what an all-electric version of the Niro Hybrid would look like.

Kia has revealed its plans for the next decade at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

In fact, with so many carmakers pledging a raft of new EV cars in the years to follow, surely we now have to think about the various noises each will have to make?

Now dubbed a "concept", the auto showcases the brand's new electric vehicle technology and spearheads a charge by the Korean manufacturer to bring a whole range of electrified cars to the roads. A compact SUV that's fully electric, it's been designed with aerodynamic slipperiness in mind, though also serves as a test bed for some of Kia's other technologies in progress. Things like pedestrian warning system which doesn't alert you to rogue humans crossing into the car's path, but warns them.

Another cockpit showcases a feature that allows rear passengers to listen to different music from front passengers, made possible by noise-cancellation technology creating two separate zones in the auto. A powerful 150-kW (204-hp) electric motor is fed by a high-capacity 64-kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, allowing the Niro EV Concept a driving range of 238 miles (383 kilometers). Kia says the current powertrain found here utilizes new production technology which will be applied to other near-future vehicles.

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

The Eco/Electric plans include a pledge to offer 16 new advanced powertrain vehicles by 2021, comprised of hybrids, plug-in hybrids, EVs and a new fuel-cell electric vehicle, due to go on sale in 2020. The interactive exhibits will feature enhanced communication between vehicles and its occupants as well as driver-assistance technologies, innovative HMI functions and the first in-car 5G internet connection. While the existing production Kia Niro has donated some of its styling language to the concept car's profile, the rear is more streamlined for making sure airflow can cleanly pass across it.
