17-APR-2019, NEW YORK SOURCE: Kia Motors America/ Spicy New Vision for the Future of Electric Vehicles

Imagined and created at Kia’s California design studio. Also versatile and inventive. For this auto creates a whole new category of mobility. It’s considered “The Everything Car”. Also the ECEV!

Bold, imaginative design and high-tech features

Kia Motors America (KMA) unveiled its vision of the future of electric vehicles and it’s hot. And spicy. The HabaNiro concept is a fully-electric. In addition, all-wheel drive, four-seat wonder car with an All Electric Range (AER) of more than 300 miles, level-five autonomous mode, butterfly wing doors and more advanced tech than what helped land men on the moon. But this is no fanciful supercar that will likely never be built, but a prescient look into the future of mobility where automobiles will seamlessly integrate design, capability, usefulness and creativity.

Kia Motors America (KMA) unveiled its vision of the future of electric vehicles and it’s hot.  And spicy.

According to KIA, it was also revealed at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. So the HabaNiro concept car features a stunning design with butterfly doors. Also a red-hot interior and technology of the future. With its tough looking front end and skid plate, HabaNiro is at home both on and off-road. From also 300+ miles of all-electric range. Also to the windshield with augmented reality, HabaNiro is giving us a glimpse of Kia’s future.

So The HabaNiro concept is a fully-electric.

Yet and most noteworthy is the HabaNiro exudes coiled muscularity and capability.



A Whole New Category of Vehicle

The HabaNiro is also a compact crossover utility vehicle.
That’s also only in terms of existing industry category language. But the HabaNiro can’t be so easily defined. It’s essentially an all-electric Everything Car or ECEV. That’s for the commuter, crossover, sport utility and state-of-the-art technology workroom. As well as the adventure vehicle.

An Exterior to Move You

The HabaNiro grille resembles a shark’s snout. It’ll complete it also with a slit-like gap full of gloss black aluminum “teeth”. Those that are similar to the cooling blades found on high-end electronic equipment. The EV chassis architecture allowed the wheels to be pushed to the corners. Thereby giving the HabaNiro its wide and confident stance.

So some features are the satin aluminum skid plates. As well as the milled billet aluminum tow hooks. Finally the Anodized Lava Red aluminum accents.

An Interior to Transport You and an Array of High-Tech Features.

Furthermore and I think what’s cool, creating movement. One that also reflects onto surfaces within the cabin. The Lighting Color Effect (LCE) can also be dimmed or brightened. All by the hue which can be modified to impact. Aka the mood of the interior environment.

When HabaNiro’s part-time level-five autonomous driving system is engaged watch out.

For the steering wheel and instrument panel also retract forward. All to provide more room for the front occupants. I am talking Media or other entertainment. I mean such as a movie for a long highway haul. It can also be displayed on the full-width HUD video system.

Into the Future

In conclusion, the HabaNiro’s butterfly doors? Maybe not today. However the future is also an exciting place. Finally, Kia is also ready to lead the automotive industry. Especially into this spicy world of possibility.
