Is it a concept or production ready? It's a concept but from the buzz Kia is creating, it is definitely headed to production with some changes, of course. Also Read - Hyundai Sonata hybrid electric car uses solar roof for charging, just like the Lightyear One
Is it a launch, preview or showcase? A showcase. Sort of a “we can do this too” as far as Kia is concerned
Why is it important? It marks Kia's (Hyundai's sister concern, for the uninitiated) foray into the rear-drive sports car category. It also takes Kia's new design philosophy further with very aerodynamic looks – just check out the rear, if you don't believe us. We quite like the confidence it exudes, nothing like a first-timer. We also like the promised powertrain – 3.3 litre v-6, producing 390 PS and 394 Nm and will come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Is it relevant to India? Not unless Hyundai decides to bring Kia to India. But the folks across the oceans in the US are already quite kicked about it.
