The Concept EV5 features a completely flat floor and generous space within the cabin. Innovative swivel seats enable occupants to sit and, depending on where they have parked, enjoy uninterrupted views of the scenery around them.


In line with Kia’s determination to build its cars using methodologies and materials more in harmony with nature, a wide suite of sustainable materials is used throughout the cabin of the Concept EV5. To implement the brand’s sustainable development strategy, various sustainable items are deployed, including plant-based materials like seaweed extract and upcycled PET bottles on the seats, doors, dashboard, and headliner, setting new standards of sustainability without the use of animal leather.



Very nice. I hope it has LFP batteries.
