Kia didn't say much about the motor and battery, other than that it's "underpinned by a low-mounted, induction-charged battery pack that powers a compact drivetrain." Since the car will never be sold, that hardly matters anyway.
Imagine by Kia is the company's first EV concept, so it went all-in on the marketing-speak, too. "There's a great sense of tension and purity in the car's tautly-drawn sheetmetal and the crisp shoulder-line crease that runs around the entire car," said Kia design VP Gregory Guillaume. " I wanted to introduce an element to create a rippling effect in the metal, much like the shockwaves you would see if you threw a stone into a perfectly still mountain lake."
It would be easy to dismiss that as so much gobbledygook, but so far Kia has more or less walked its talk when it comes to EVs. We were quite impressed by its all-new Niro EV, calling it an "electric crossover for the people" thanks to its 240 mile range and zippy performance. If the Imagine by Kia is anything to go by, it's next-gen of EVs will look sharper too, but hopefully Kia will use just a couple of displays.
