Kia Skips Detroit for Las Vegas Show
Instead, Kia has chosen the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas for its debut of the Ray production Electric Vehicle (EV) and Naimo EV concept car for the first time in North America.
Both vehicles feature advanced lithium polymer battery packs, and the Naimo introduces an all-new and groundbreaking User Centered Driving (UCD) telematics concept which previews future possibilities in safety, media and entertainment in-vehicle technologies. The lithium polymer battery packs are currently in use in Kia and Hyundai's hybrid vehicles on sale in North America.
Many might have expected Hyundai, the parent company of Kia, to come out with an electric vehicle but its green bona fides are heading in a different direction. Green Car Reports says Kia is going to have the electric vehicles while Hyundai focuses on plug-in hybrids and fuel-cell vehicles.
