Kia Naimo Concept Unveiled in Seoul

Kia is debuting a new concept, the Naimo at the 2011 Seoul Motor Show. The Naimo concept is an electric crossover concept that is powered by twin lithium-ion batteries and an electric motor with 110 horsepower and 206 lb-ft. of torque.

Kia claims that the concept can travel up to 124 miles on a single charge and has a top speed of 93 mph. It will take five hours to recharge the system using a standard household power outlet, but a special quick charge system can recharge the batteries up to 80 percent in 25 minutes.

The design of the Naimo concept features a wrap-around windshield, an asymmetric sunroof and front and rear dot-style LED lighting. You won’t be able to find a conventional wiper blade on the windshield since the concept uses a high-intensity air jet at the base of the windshield. Door mirrors have also been replaced by tiny cameras installed in the A-pillars.
