This is a teaser image of the Kia Ray concept, which will make its debut at the Chicago motor show next month. Not much is known about the Ray, but the Korean carmaker says that it is a plug-in hybrid that also shows off “Kia’s evolving design direction”.

Styled at the Kia Design Centre in the US, the Ray looks to have four-doors wrapped in a low-roof coupe style bodyshell. It’s obvious from the picture that the Ray has a glass roof and prominent wheel arches. We reckon that it should be quite a looker in the metal.

On another note, Kia says that real-life testing of its hybrid vehicles (both petrol and diesel variants) will start this year in the UK.
