- Electric city car concept with gullwing-style doors - Styling is based on the Kia Ray, a previous concept car - Panoramic glass roof with purple trim inside
The Kia Pop is the small car of the future - apparently. The Korean firm has pulled the wraps off its space-aged looking city car concept, with an electric drivetrain, gullwing-style, upward opening doors and a purple cabin.
What's all the fuss about?
The Pop is powered by electricity, which means that it has zero tailpipe emissions. It's also only three metres long, which is slightly longer than its biggest rival, the Toyota iQ, but less than Kia's current smallest car, the Picanto.
If it looks familiar, that's because Kia also unveiled the Ray concept car at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year and it follows the same style.
Any new technology?
It runs only on electricity and features those funky doors, but that's nothing that hasn't been done before. A power point at the back of the car will be where it is charged from and it will feature LED lights.
The cabin is finished in purple trim and there's a bench seat in the front for two. There's one additional seat in the back as well, which renders the Pop a three-seater.
Estimated release date: No word yet
Estimated cost: It's a concept for now, so who knows?
