Kia to the future

Kia Motors will unveil a new all-electric concept car at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The concept features a never-seen-before human-machine interface (HMI) and an advanced new ‘motion graphic’ lighting system, previewing the potential for these technologies for market introduction in coming years.

The brand will also use the show to present its vision for the future, unveiling a range of new in-car features and innovations. It will present three interactive, cockpit-style exhibits designed to show how the company will incorporate new technologies to enhance communication and interaction between occupants and vehicles. These include new advanced driver assistance technologies and pioneering HMI functions, as well as the world’s first in-car 5G connection.

Dr. Woong-cheol Yang, vice chairman and head of Hyundai-Kia R&D Centre, said, ‘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.’
