Soul-based 4x4 Kia shown

17.02.2015

KIA has unveiled its Trail’ster e-AWD concept at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. As you can see the new vehicle is based on the recently launched Soul.

The model is finished in a polar pearl snowdrift/terra bronze metallic paint scheme and also features anodized fire-red wheel accents and polished billet aluminium sections, as well as a waterproof roll-top canvas roof and armoured aluminium skid plates.

The Trail’ster previews a potential future model aimed at the adventurous. The model has all-wheel-drive - so many mountain activities from skiing and snowboarding to camping, hiking and mountain biking will be accessible.

The concept is powered by a 138kW/250kW 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine through a six-speed automatic transmission. The Trail’ster’s electric propulsion system draws energy from a 1.2kW/h Lithium Ion Polymer battery and provides an additional 27kW/137Nm.
