Detroit 2011: Kia KV7 Concept Is a Van For The Future

Kia’s U.S. design studio unveiled yesterday its latest design statement – the KV7 concept at the Detroit Auto Show. The KV7 Concept showcases future vision for the van segment, featuring gullwing door on the passenger side, floating tabletop touch-screen computer, Wi-FI enabled cabin and lounge-like seating.

Under all that glass and boxy package is not an electric motor as you would have guessed, but a 285bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre GDI four-cylinder engine, that should be plenty to move this futuristic van.
