    Geneva 2019: Kia introduced the Imagine by Kia concept

      Answers concerns about range and performance while also being dynamic to drive.

    Kia fully unveiled their all-electric concept car at the Geneva International Auto Show today.  

    Kia's design team exploited the flexibility of an electric chassis architecture to maximize cabin space to create a spacious interior.  They drew together elements of a muscular SUV, a sleek sedan, and a spacious crossover into a single vehicle that purposely does not fit into any one classification. 

    The concept pokes a bit of fun at the industry's current obsession with screens by creating gauge cluster made of 21 individual high-resolution screen curved over the dashboard.

    The Imagine by Kia is not destined for production, however, design elements from the vehicle show the direction Kia may take on its future cars and SUVs.

    Very cool, I love the poke at the large multi screen with all those little ones. LOL

    Overall I like that they state bigger interior in a smaller package. Hopefully they really deliver on this.

    Well, it's a concept, so there won't be any delivery on this one at all.

    True, but still cool to see someone building true concepts to get consumer feedback. :D

    I would highly encourage Kia to take this styling direction even if it isn't on EVs.

    Yet another crossover coupe vehicle.  

    Problem is all these companies already have 3-4 SUVs, so now they have to make crossover coupe vehicles because there is nothing left as they kill all regular coupes and sedans.  Plus once BMW and Mercedes did it, the other 30 brands needed to copy that idea.

    Nah, the '72 Fury.  The Kia front kinda reminds me of the Fury bumper shape.
