The Streets Best Kept Secrets Exposed

Tired of only getting 16MPG in your Hummer 2 well check out this alternative ~> Kia Pop recharges in 6 hours with 87mph top speed and 100-mile range

After an August tease the all-electric Kia Pop concept car is now getting a proper reveal at the Paris Motor Show. Pop is a three-meter long three seater featuring a number of futuristic touches like rear-view cameras in each door, a full length glass roof, and an otherwise transparent OLED panel that displays all your instrument readouts only when the car is running. A second touch panel to the right of the steering wheel controls the vehicle’s other functions including audio, sat-nav, and climate. Under the hood you’ll find a 60-ps, 190-Nm motor powered by lithium polymer gel batteries capable of charging in just six hours. Combined we’re looking at an 87mph (140kph) top speed and 100-mile (160-km) max range. Of course, knowing the auto industry, by the time it hits the assembly lines it’ll likely resemble an unimaginative shoebox using whatever off-the-shelf parts Kia can find. But a boy can dream can’t he?
