With its debut at CES 2018, the Niro EV Concept Car blurs the line between car and driver. With integrated technology that both excites and responds to your senses, it turns the driving experience into a more human experience. This Niro recognizes your face, reacts to your touch and gestures, and responds to your voice. Add to that 5G connectivity and an all-electric range of approximately 238 miles with zero tailpipe emissions, and it represents the leading edge of Kia's technology innovation.
Ultra-innovative technology puts you face-to-face with the future. With Kia’s human-machine interface (HMI), drivers can log into the vehicle using face and voice recognition that adjusts vehicle settings to personal preferences. Infotainment and HVAC systems are controlled by touch and gesture on the steering wheel and the digital dashboard display conveniently delivers information like vehicle settings, powertrain status, and trip information.
Every year innovators and influencers gather at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to share breakthrough technologies with the world. This year Kia showcased newest innovations, including human-machine interface (HMI) functions like driver facial and voice recognition. And upcoming in-car 5G connection will deliver drastically faster, more reliable wireless connectivity for improved streaming.
