On the tech front, however, Kia is eyeing to show off its state-of-the-art human-machine interface and an advanced new motion lighting system that will feature on the Niro EV. With its 150kW electric motor, the concept boasts a range of 238 miles.

At CES, Kia also showed off the Niro EV Concept, said to be next-step in the brand's journey towards electrification.

CES 2018: Kia Unveils Niro EV Concept With 383 Km Range

Kia has unveiled its plans for the future of mobility at CES 2018, aiming to have autonomous cars in cities by 2021 and 16 electric cars in its range by 2025.

After unveiling the new Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid in Los Angeles last fall, the South Korean automaker got to work on a new version of the model.

Razer's Project Linda concept turns its Android phone into a laptop
As with many of Razer's CES reveals over the years, this is a prototype for the time being and may not make it to the market. There is also the option to hook up a mouse, which could give you an edge when it comes to some Android games.

That number is significant since, just a few years ago, mass-production electric vehicles were doing well if they hit 100 miles on a single charge. If the system spots a pedestrian or cyclist, it can fire off an alarm sound targeted specifically at that person. At the rear, the Niro EV Concept features slim LED taillights, as well as sharp trailing edges that allow air to flow more smoothly off the back of the auto. The interior, meanwhile, is envisioned with "greater user interaction with new technologies and features". Created by the company's design studio in Korea, the Niro EV Concept is a fully electric SUV with a next-generation powertrain using new production technologies earmarked for near-future EVs from Kia. Dr Woong-chul Yung, the head of Kia's R&D centre, called it a manifesto "where everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the infinite value that future mobility will bring".

Because the company says it expects the Niro EV to be driven largely in "urban and suburban" usage, so it includes a new pedestrian-warning system that adds outward-pointing speakers to the usual cameras and image-processing technology.

"Virtual reality, self-driving cars and full vehicle connectivity were all once considered technologies of the distant future".

Kia is getting as much eco-mileage as it can out of its Niro, which already comes as a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid.

Amazon Alexa is coming to Windows 10 PCs this year
It may have decided it would rather consumers interact with Alexa directly, instead of accessing the assistant via Cortana. The rollout of the Alexa-Cortana integration, announced previous year , has been delayed but is expected to start soon.

Alongside its new technologies, Kia has revealed plans to roll-out its "WiBLE" car-sharing service - launched in Korea a year ago - to new regions from 2018, starting with Europe.
