Kia POP Electric Concept


Kia released the first pictures of their new concept car for 2010 Paris Motor Show, called the POP.

It is of course an electric car and features a very futuristic design, done by Kia’s European design team under the direction of Peter Schreyer, Kia’s Chief Design Officer, and Gregory Guillaume, Kia Europe’s Chief Designer.

A concept car like the POP could only have come from us,” explains Gregory Guillaume.  “Designers very rarely have the opportunity to start from a clean sheet of paper and it’s great to be in a position to operate with such freedom.”

Th POP does not seem to have any production qualities in it and it;s just made for show. But Kia will also bring some of the latest production models to the show, including the Optima 2011MY and the new and amazing Sportage crossover.

Demonstrating Kia’s ongoing commitment to minimising its vehicles’ impact on the environment, the manufacturer’s Paris stand will also feature a number of ‘green’ models.  The three environmentally-focused vehicles – Kia cee’d and Venga low emissions models, and an innovative mild hybrid Kia Sportage concept – have an average tailpipe CO2 figure of just 108 g/km and will be displayed in a distinct ‘green zone’ on the stand.
