Although it will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show next month, Kia released a scant few details about its electric Pop concept car today, along with some pictures.
The Pop will be tiny, at just shy of 10 feet in length, and will have a 3 seat layout. Although better interior pictures aren’t available, you can see from the overhead picture in the gallery below that the front seats comprise a curved bench—a bit of a throwback to a time when bench seats allowed you to cuddle up with your honey for a cruise. It’s not clear to me where the third seat fits in, or how a passenger would access it.
Building on its new and *different* styling philosophy, the Pop is cute in that futuristic, Asian Manga sort of way. But the car also exudes a bit of an aggressive feel, as if it’s a female praying mantis getting ready to lop the head off its lover. Who knows if this concept will ever influence future Kia designs, but it certainly could.
