Finding Naimo: Kia's new model makes world debut

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.
