Kia HabaNiro Concept Points To Autonomous, Electric Crossover

  • KIA Haba Niro electric SUV

The outside of the HabaNiro naturally includes "lava red" panels on its sides and a "shark's snout" grille up front with what Kia calls a slit-like gap with glossy black aluminum "teeth". Instead, the Kia concept features an advanced heads-up display that takes up the entire windshield (this vehicle can fully drive itself, remember) and sounds like something lifted straight out of Minority Report. Metallic gray cladding covers the front and extends past the front wheels before a silvery-white color breaks it up. The HabaNiro also has satin aluminum skid plates, billet aluminum tow hooks and 20-inch wheels with red accents.

Penned by the company's American design centre, the Habaniro has a flat floor, seating for four people, and access via four butterfly doors. Last but not least, the model has been outfitted with daytime running lights that have a unique "heartbeat pulse". The Lava Red interior suggests passion and vibrancy. Contributing to the interior's clean and modern appearance is the absence of rectangular screens and traditional control knobs and buttons. When the HabaNiro drives itself, the windshield becomes a full head-up display for entertainment.

HabaNiro's occupants are kept comfortable by a slim Perimeter Ventilation System (PVS) that quietly and evenly blows a curtain of air throughout the cabin.

Videos of Robert Kraft, others to be made public
The cameras were installed in January after officers used an undisclosed ruse to gain access to the spa. Last week, his lawyers argued that release of the video could "destroy" his chances at a fair trial.

Said to feature an all-electric drivetrain, the Habaniro has a driving range of over 480 kilometres (300 miles). But when a human needs to drive. well, we need to see it in action. The Eye Tracking System monitors the driver's glances, so when he looks at the space where a rearview mirrror should be - but isn't - the system projects a camera-based view of what's behind the crossover.

There are no immediate plans to utilize AI to sense when the driver is hungry and then direct to the nearest drive-through where an order will be waiting, but the technology may someday evolve to make just such a task possible. The HabaNiro's butterfly doors?
