Kia is set to pull the veils off its new all-electric concept car at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week. At the same time, the car will also showcase the Korean company’s brand vision for future mobility as well as its electrification plans for models to come.

The EV boasts Kia’s latest design language and takes form in hatchback shape, with a silhouette much like the Kia Rio. There’s no telling if it’s an all-new model or an all-electric version of an outgoing model, but more details should be available come January 8, 2018. The cabin on the other hand, will benefit from a “never-before-seen” human-machine interface (HMI), as well as an advanced new ‘motion graphic’ lighting system – a feature that may find its way to mass production Kia cars in the future.

Displayed alongside the Kia EV concept is a range of new innovations and in-car features by the automaker. This includes plans for autonomous driving, which would be displayed at the ‘Beyond Autonomous Driving’ interactive exhibition.

Three of such interactive technologies will be presented, one of which employs a cockpit-style display area that’s designed to demonstrate the integration of new technologies that apparently enhances communication and interaction between the car and its occupants. Kia will also present its latest driver assistance technologies and new HMI functions, as well as the world’s first in-car 5G connection.

“Virtual reality, self-driving cars and full vehicle connectivity were all once considered technologies of the distant future. As they rapidly become a reality, Kia is exploring how to adapt these new technologies for its customers. At CES, we will share our strategy and vision for future mobility, and exhibit a range of advanced technologies that our customers can look forward to,” said Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, Vice Chairman and Head of Hyundai-Kia R&D center.
