Motor companies are getting the hype of electric vehicles or EVs. Thus, most of them are getting ready for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Mainly each brand has its own unique announcements and teasers, but Hyundai is not going to join. However, the sister brand is going to be present and they are ready to reveal something big. Not only Kia is going to use the European expo to feature their new Xceed crossover, but the company is also planning a different concept.

Featured in Car Buzz, an unnamed car that has been booked to pack an all-electric powertrain. The bookings are a process to enter the company's concept in Geneva. Thus, the article added that it looks pretty striking from the head-on view. The design features a new look on Kia's notably Tiger-Nose grille. Since the electronic vehicles do not need radiators, the company applied across the full fascia, encompassing the slim headlights in an illuminated frame of its own. Thus, EVs does not have the kind of internal-combustion engines do.

 In line, Kia's greenhouse also looks pretty thin. It looked like it has tiny cameras instead of mirrors. This concept has been long seen and just recently being applied to the production of electronic vehicles as well. As for the lower front fascia, it appears to have some feather-like motif. The overall design is a reserve to previews all of the company's future EVs, according to Express.

As follows, the head of Kia's European design center, Gregory Guillaume said that "Automotive design is about capturing the heart and making it beat that bit faster for that bit longer. We imagined designing an all-electric car that not only answered consumer concerns around the range, performance, recharging networks, and driving dynamism, but one that also gave you goosebumps when you looked at it and made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you drove it." He added that That is why the company's all-electric concept is designed to not only pulse racing but also to signpost their holistic and emotional approach to the electrification.
