Kia Motors America to Reveal Concept at Chicago Auto Show

Kia to Reveal New Electric AWD Concept at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show

Something cryptic appeared in my HECN inbox earlier today:

Kia Motors America will unveil an advanced and capable electric all-wheel drive (e-AWD) concept vehicle at the upcoming Chicago Auto Show. This bold off-roader was conceived by Kia’s California design studio and built for city dwellers seeking the ultimate urban escape. Intended to enable a wide array of outdoor activities from skiing and snowboarding, to camping, hiking and mountain biking, this rugged runabout captures the essence of adventuring at higher elevations with the promise of surefootedness in the wild.


Could this be an lifted and AWD version of the Kia Soul EV?  Why not?  Could this be an EV version of the Santa Cruz concept, which we talked about earlier?  It could be that as well. Could this be drawn from a completely blank sheet, something that signals where Kia/Hyundai see their vision over the next 7-10 years?  Yep.

We’ll just have to wait until Thursday, February 12 to find out.
