Judging by the presented teaser, when creating the concept of their new coupe-like crossover, which will receive a fully electric powerplant, the designers of the South Korean brand were inspired by flying saucers. The machine is presented at the China International Import Exhibition.

Starting today, Kia, a South Korean company, will showcase its new Futuron concept crossover at the 2019 China International Import Show (CIIE) in Shanghai. The novelty has a coupe-shaped body, giant wheels, which are characteristic of a demonstration car. Representatives of the company note that the new crossover is an example of what the “electric future” of the Kia automobile brand will be.

Announced as a sports crossover, Futuron is fully electric and equipped with an all-wheel drive system, although Kia did not go into any specific information about the technical “stuffing”.

We know that the concept car has a length of 4,850 mm with a massive wheelbase of 3,000 mm and a height of only 1,550 mm. The tiger nose corporate grille has been rethought, as it is now wide enough to fit the headlights, and it also has a backlight.

 The glass block of headlights in front of the car reminds us of flying saucers, and also contains special LIDAR sensors, thanks to which the crossover receives a 4th-level autonomous control system. The car interior is as special as its exterior, thanks to the inclined front seats that recline when the steering wheel is retracted – in this case, an autonomous control system is activated. According to representatives of the South Korean brand, when you turn on the autopilot, the front seats are as comfortable as the passengers of first-class airlines.
