Kia Plans 16 New Electrified Vehicles by 2025

Kia Niro EV concept

Along with the concept vehicle reveal, Kia Motors also presented its "Boundless for all" vision, which paints a future with infinite transportation and mobility opportunities.

Kia is previewing one of the new electric vehicles with the debut of the Niro EV concept at CES. 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".

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 spokesman for Kia UK said: "Kia is aiming to be a leader in electric vehicle technology and will have 16 electrified models in the range by 2025, many of which will be arriving very soon indeed". Whenever the system detects pedestrians or cyclists, the vehicle plays an audible warning focussed specifically at the person to warn them of the vehicle's movement.

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 vehicle. We'll of course be keeping you up to date on additional details regarding the Kia Niro EV as it gets closer to production.

The study is powered by a next-generation EV powertrain that will be utilized in future EVs from Kia. For example, the Niro EV Concept is equipped with the new Active Pedestrian Warning System (APWS) which combines front view cameras, object recognition technology and front speakers to alert pedestrians or cyclists crossing in front of the auto. The interior, meanwhile, is envisioned with "greater user interaction with new technologies and features". It has been replaced by interactive display panel which can show various messages such as "Hello, CES".

Kia announced that it will unveil 16 new advanced powertrain cars by 2025.

Powering the Niro EV Concept is a 64kWh lithium-polymer battery which drives a single 150kW motor.

Kia also showcased a world first in-vehicle 5G connection at the show, with a real-time connection between Las Vegas and the firm's head office in Seoul, South Korea.

The automaker will introduce connected auto technologies across every vehicle segment by 2025, and on all models by 2030.

Kia vice-chairman Dr. Woong-chul Yang said: "Kia's connected cars will be both boundless and connected and offer a new kind of mobility experience".

Last but not least, Kia is bringing its WiBLE car-sharing service to new destinations this year.
