Kia Motors America have teased their newest concept, an electric all-wheel drive (e-AWD) concept vehicle at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show on Thursday 12th February (09.00 CST).
The off-roader was conceived by Kia’s California design studio and built for city dwellers seeking; the ultimate urban escape.
The press release only offers a small glimpse at the front nose of the new concept. However, styling is not dissimilar to that of the Kia Soul (see comparison below), although there are obvious changes, such as the front bumper and lower guard additions. Headlights and side details are again, similar but not the same as the Soul.
The car is intended to offer owners the ability to carry equipment for such ‘extreme’ sports as skiing and snowboarding, but also cater to those more into the likes of camping, hiking and mountain biking.
