The Concept EV5 wants you to hang out outside of it just as much as inside.
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.
Looking at the design, Kia wants to emphasize the Concept EV5 as a portable lounge as much as a vehicle. The conceptual EV even has a table that pops out of the trunk to give you another hangout option.
The rest of the exterior shows a roof spoiler for aerodynamics, 21-inch wheels, and a full-length panoramic sunroof that doubles as a solar array.
Kia hasn’t revealed the specs just yet, but we’re expecting these details to come out when a production version is announced. Don’t be too surprised if Kia gets rid of some of the conceptual features, though.
