KIA MOTORS SHARES A VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF URBAN ELECTRIC TRANSPORTATION WITH THE POP CONCEPT CAR AT 2010 LOS ANGELES AUTO SHOW
Making its North American debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show alongside Kia Motors' first-ever hybrid for the U.S. the 2011 Optima Hybrid (arriving early next year) the all-electric Kia POP concept vehicle provides a glimpse into the future of urban transportation and takes its inspirations from outside the world of automobile design. Less than 10 feet in length, the chrome-colored three-seater was created by Kia's European Design Center in Frankfurt under the direction of Peter Schreyer, chief design officer, Kia Motors Corporation and can travel up to 100 miles on a single charge. The POP comes to the U.S. shortly after the "Ray" plug-in hybrid concept, which was developed at Kia's Southern California design studio and introduced at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show, and is the result of Kia Motors' expanding green car investments and research and development efforts around the world.
