Electric POP concept to spark Kia interest at Paris


Frankfurt, 17th September 2010 – Kia Motors will continue its tradition of unveiling convention-challenging, design-led concept vehicles at motor shows when it reveals an all-new electric concept car at the Paris Show on September 30th. Called the ‘POP’, Kia’s three-metre three-seater boasts zero-emissions and brings innovative design chic to the city car segment with its dramatic styling.

Drop-shaped line management, short overhangs and steeply increasing side windows: The concept micro car provides an impressing prospect for the possible future in vehicle design. The vision has been realized consistently down to the last detail: Even the rims or the chrome-framed steering column could be regarded as design objects. A look through the large glass roof shows the interior in fashionable violet and 3 seats. Driver and co-driver are sharing a bench seat, another passenger can get himself comfortable on a back seat.

The Kia POP makes an impression not only with its design. Despite of its compact size all passengers have (due to the extra narrow dashboard) lots of legroom. Furthermore, the extremely aerodynamic, future-oriented city car may run with zero local emissions. It is powered by an electro motor which is supplied by lithium ion batteries.

On 30 September 2010 the Kia POP concept car will be presented to the international press at the Paris Motor Show, where further information will be published.

The Paris Motor Show will open its doors to the public from 2nd - 17th October 2010.
