This is Kia's Naimo concept, which made its world debut at the Seoul Motor Show.
It's an electric crossover utility vehicle (CUV). At 3.9-metres long, it is designed to explore the practicalities of a five-door, four-seater city car.
There are no B-pillars and it has rear-hinged rear doors.
It is driven by a PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) electric motor, which has 109bhp.
That means the Naimo can reach a top speed of 150kmh.
The 27KWh battery can be recharged to 80pc of its capacity within 25 minutes.
