The new HMI also allows drivers to "log-in" to the vehicle using face and voice recognition thanks to technology developed with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Niro EV Concept has a driving range of 238 miles.

Late to the "eco" party, Kia is rushing to catch up, revealing the new member of its Niro family during a preview at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Connected cars are also part of Kia's long-term plans.

The Niro is now available as a straight-up hybrid, powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, or as a plug-in hybrid version called the Niro PHEV. The safety system uses cameras to monitor for objects and is fitted with speakers to alert people who might be in the vehicle's way. Inside the Niro EV features an entirely new minimalistic interior with new technologies. For example, the Niro EV Concept is equipped with the new Active Pedestrian Warning System (APWS) which combines front view cameras, object recognition technology and front speakers to alert pedestrians or cyclists crossing in front of the vehicle.
