Kia Pop Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery
The Kia Pop concept that debuted at the Paris Motor Show is one slick electric city car. The company calls it, "a striking vision of future urban electric transport" that's supposedly meant, "to act as a loose nucleus, a wild atom." Yeah, we're not quite sure what that means, but we do know that the bubbly Pop concept is at least a little more than just some fancy eye candy.
Kia design chief Peter Schreyer notes that the fizzy city car wasn't created to preview the company's design direction, but he does believe that many of its styling cues will evolve into something that we'll see on Kia's upcoming production cars. It's difficult to pick out styling elements from the radical Pop that could transfer over to production vehicles, but the sweeping, uninterrupted glass up top and its oblong single-pane side windows would make any small car feel a lot more spacious inside, so we're pulling for that.
