kia pop concept
The radical Kia Pop concept, a three-seat electric vehicle with a polarizing design theme, will debut at the 2010 Paris Auto Show. The Kia Pop enters far riskier design territory than the Kia Ray plug-in hybrid sedan that debuted earlier this year at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show.
Kia is not yet revealing the Pop's specifications.
earlier this week motoring company kia announced their 'pop concept', a new three-seat
car which will be unveiled at the paris motor show on september 30, 2010.

are also employed for a zero-emissions concept that kia says 'brings design chic and dramatic
styling to the city car segment'.
With its angled, pill-shaped side windows, a windscreen running to the back of the car and capsule-like cabin, the three-metre-long Pop took its influence more from industrial design than cars.

According to Schreyer, the electric car will go the route of the computer, with people increasing buying on innovative design rather than just on power figures.
The Pop was the halo car for a new range of EcoDynamics cars Kia displayed, including a 75bhp 1.4-litre diesel version of the Venga that emits 114g/km of CO2.
Kia showed a battery-only Venga concept at Geneva this year and is working on a pure battery car.
