Kia Telluride Concept

Kia

Kia Motors America proudly presented the cutting-edge vision for the full-size SUV at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. The Kia Telluride is a purely conceptual vehicle. It is based on an existing platform and reveals the brand’s interest in branching out in the SUV world. The Telluride is a three-row, seven-passenger, luxury SUV concept. It features a modern, muscular built, and stat-of-the-art technology. The SUV’s interior has four black-leather captain’s seats and a third-row folded bench. All four captain seats include a series of precise diamond-cut openings in the seatback, each of which are embedded with Smart Sensors. These Smart Sensors capture the passenger’s vitals. Once the Smart Sensors have gathered the passenger’s vital health information, the vitals are displayed on the interior door panel screens. These vitals then systematically synchronize with a Light Emitted Rejuvenation system that utilizes a large, wing-shaped LED panel mounted beneath the oversized sunroof. The sunroof then displays a pattern of therapeutic light to treat desynchronosis (jetlag) and improve the passengers’ energy levels.

In addition to this innovative new technology, the Telluride’s powertrain is like no other. A finger-print activated push-button start activates Telluride’s tremendously potent but extremely efficient PHEV powertrain. This luxury SUV is equipped with a 3.5-liter GDI V6 engine and powerful electric motor. The Telluride produces 400 horsepower yet achieving more than 30 MPG on the highway!

Although there are currently no plans to bring the Telluride to production, Kia is known to deliver on production of their vehicles.
