Kia has offered a peek at its upcoming electric concept car, revealing its face in a teaser.
Although the original image was blacked out, a bit of basic photoshop is all it took to get a proper look at the compact, sporty show car.
Its headlight signature is very different to that we've seen on previous Kias, while the bonnet and flared guards have a hint of Stinger about them. There are high-set cameras in place of the conventional rear-view mirrors, too, a touch gradually moving from the concept world into reality.
At the moment we don't have a name for the car, but we know it'll be a pure EV, and we know it's been designed by the Kia team in Frankfurt, Germany.
"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,” says Gregory Guillaume, design vice president for Kia Europe.
“We imagined designing an all-electric car that not only answered consumer concerns around range, performance, recharging networks and driving dynamism, but one that also gave you goose bumps when you looked at it, and made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you drove it,” he went on.
“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.”
