Kia has been eager to establish a design philosophy for its blooming EV lineup. With its latest Concept EV5, the midsize SUV solidifies a lot of the design cues from its older sibling, the recently-revealed EV9.


We first saw Kia’s swiveling seats with its full-size electric SUV, the EV9. If the three-row boxy build was too much car for you, the good news is that Kia is bringing them back with the slimmer Concept EV5.
