The Kia Niro EV boasts an evolution of the current Niro's design, with fresh front and rear light treatments and an illuminated "Niro EV" logo on the rear bumper.

Kia has unveiled its plans for the future of mobility at CES 2018, aiming to have autonomous cars in cities by 2021 and 16 electric cars in its range by 2025.

Kia vice-chairman Dr. Woong-chul Yang said: "Kia's connected cars will be both boundless and connected and offer a new kind of mobility experience". Consumers are bound today by the idea that a auto is "just a vehicle", but Kia is committed to providing a broader solution to mobility.

Alongside Kia's new concept, the brand will reveal a range of new in-car features and innovations at CES 2018. Replacing it is a pair of very thin lamps and a smooth, interactive display panel.

This Niro electric version is another step toward bringing to fruition Kia's ambitious plan to market 16 hybrid or electric vehicles by 2025, including a hydrogen-fueled auto in 2020.

Because the company says it expects the Niro EV to be driven largely in "urban and suburban" usage, so it includes a new pedestrian-warning system that adds outward-pointing speakers to the usual cameras and image-processing technology. Instead, the Kia Niro EV is created to address several problems that have put off many potential battery-car buyers: range and charging times.

Inside, there's a new wraparound design to the dashboard, finished in silver, grey, and bronze. For example, the Niro EV Concept could theoretically limit its maximum power if it recognized a teen driver behind the wheel.

Kia envisions owners using face recognition and voice control to "log-in" to their cars in the future. Kia points out that the Niro EV isn't based on Hyundai's Ioniq platform and uses a 204PS electric motor that draws energy from a 64 kWh battery pack. Kia says it'll start that process in Europe, offering one-way trips rather than demanding the vehicle be returned to the same starting point.
