Kia Ray Concept teasers – Click above for high-res image gallery

Kia has been teasing us over the last few weeks with the Ray concept car bound for next week's Chicago Auto Show, and today the Korean automaker has lifted up the skirt just a few more inches to show off what appears to be the concept's front fascia and headlights.

So, what do we know so far about the Kia Ray? Pretty much nothing other than the fact that it will be a plug-in hybrid of sorts, and that it looks pretty small. There may or may not be solar cells on the roof – naming it the Ray may have something to do with the sun, right? – and it may use the underpinnings from parent company Hyundai's Blue-Will concept.

So, now that we've gone over what we don't know, take a gander at the two teaser images that Kia's provided so far and try your best to wait patiently for the rest of the goods next week.

      From the little that we see, it does look very interesting... has almost a cartoon quality to it - aggressive yet playful.

      I will say though that Hyundai (and thus Kia) are not known for being very faithful with their concept-to-production car transformations. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

      Interesting. From the look thus far I'm wondering if this might be Kia's take on the Hyundai Veloster...

      Looks cool thus far, but you know how concepts are.
      Everything ends up looking like a first generation Aveo.

      Will be interesting to see what Hyundai comes up with, in terms of hybrid tech.
      It could make way for cheaper hybrids..

      Judging by the proportion of that front end, it looks like this could be a Kia Rio replacement. Kia seems to want to change a lot of there old names and Rio must be on the way out.
