Kia Motors Europe manufacturer has announced that it will be presenting a new all-electric concept car at the upcoming 2019 Geneva International Motor Show on March 5. No further details have been released about the car at this stage, but Kia claims that the new electric concept will be “a visual embodiment of the company’s desire to move forward in the exciting world of electrification.” The model has been developed specifically for the European market it has been designed at the company’s design centre in Frankfurt.
In a darkened teaser image, we can see that the car’s headlights are the most prominent feature, joined together by a single, luminous border. And instead of wing mirrors, the concept features a pair of cameras intended to cut down wind resistance. This is a bold-looking car with an imposing stance, accentuated by some strong muscular lines, curved-edged and flared wheel arches.
Gregory Guillaume, Vice President of Design for Kia Motors Europe, said: “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. We imagined designing an all-electric car that not only answered consumer concerns around the range, performance, recharging networks and driving dynamism, but one that also gave you goosebumps when you looked at it and made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you drove it. 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.”
Details about the car are thin on the ground at this stage, but we’re sure looking forward to seeing what this concept looks like from all angles.
