Chicago 2010: Kia Ray plug-in hybrid concept

This is new innovation of green technology fromkia motor manufacturer ,this project is under Kia design team Peter Schreyer,significants items was put a lot of emphasis on the aerodynamics of this concept, giving it a longer tail and, thanks to its four-inch lower roof, a smaller frontal area than the earlier Hyundai concept. The aero number will also benefit from narrower tires, with the Kia rolling on 195/50R20 tires compared to the 245/40R20 rubber on the Hyundai.

The debut of the Ray also marks the launch of Kia's new green sub-brand, EcoDynamics.
