Kia Niro EV Concept gives CES hints of 2025's 16 EV plan

CES 2018: Kia Unveils Niro EV Concept With 383 Km Range

By 2025, Kia wants to introduce 16 electrified vehicles, including hybrids, plug-ins, and all-electric vehicles.

The Kia Niro is a compact crossover SUV that debuted in hybrid form in 2016.

Aside from the Niro EV, Kia's "Beyond Autonomous Driving" exhibit at CES 2018 will showcase advanced technologies that reflect the direction that the automaker is taking with regard to autonomy and mobility. "As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers", said Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Center. These exhibits also have what Kia calls the world's first in-vehicle 5G connection and facial recognition tech that will disable many features of a auto if it doesn't recognize a driver. This group will count a new family of hybrids, plug-in hybrids and EVs, plus an all-new fuel-cell EV in two years' time.

SpaceX successfully launches top-secret Zuma spacecraft
Sunday temperatures will start out in the low 50s near the Cape Canaveral Air Force pad, with colder temperatures further inland. The Falcon heavy, capable of carrying a payload of more than 54 tons, will set off from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.

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

The bigger news is that the Niro EV concept is powered by a next-generation electric vehicle powertrain that pairs a 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack with a 150 kW electric motor. There are cameras and speakers mounted on the front of the vehicle. An Active Pedestrian Warning System on the show auto uses a variety of sensors to spot potential "obstacles" and can sound an alert if a pedestrian walks in front of the vehicle. Like Hyundai, Kia proposes a new era of transportation that the carmaker calls "Boundless for all" which includes both electrification and fully autonomous cars. Also being present is the Niro EV Concept's Separate Sound Control System, which allows front and rear passengers to listen to their own music at the same time without intruding on others in the auto.

Kia will display three different cockpit designs that show how their technologies can be adapted by future vehicles.

Jags edge Bills 10-3
If Jacksonville wins, it'll set up a road matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team the Jags beat by 21 earlier in the year. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette tore Heinz Field up for 181 yards and two touchdowns in a powerful 30-9 victory.

The electric powertrain delivers power from a 64kWh battery pack to the 201bhp electric motor which is enough for a 238 mile range and a 115mile splash and dash in fifteen minutes charge.

Kia also wants to adopt connected auto technologies across every segment in its range by 2025.

Kia also announced that it will expand its WiBLE vehicle sharing service - which launched in Korea past year - to select European cities in 2018.
