Kia Motors all-electric concept car

Kia teased image of its new all-electric performance concept car ahead of its official launch on 5th March at the upcoming 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.  However, the company did not reveal name of its all new electric concept car.

Designed at Kia’s European design centre in Frankfurt, the concept is a visual embodiment of the company’s desire to move forward in the exciting world of electrification

Automotive design is about capturing the heart and making it beat that bit faster for that bit longer – and we believe that there’s absolutely no reason why that should change simply because the car is electric,” said Gregory Guillaume, Vice President of Design for Kia Motors Europe.

 “We imagined designing an all-electric car that not only answered consumer concerns around range, performance, recharging networks and driving dynamism, but one that also gave you goose bumps when you looked at it, and made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you drove it,” explains Guillaume. “That’s why our all-electric concept is designed to not only get your pulse racing, but to also signpost our holistic and emotional approach to electrification.”

The image shows that the car will feature a low and wide stance, and retain its distinctive ‘Tiger Nose’ grille design, which is framed by LED headlights.

The image also hints that a-pillars will sport small stocks, i.e.  the traditional rear view mirrors will be replaced by to camera-based ones.
