At the New York International Auto Show this week, Kia and Genesis unveiled two urban-friendly electric concept models to the world for the very first time.

Several companies used the New York Auto Show (open to the public from April 19 to 28) as an opportunity to debut some brand-new concept models. Based on the four cars that made world and North American premieres, the future of the auto industry is looking stylish, compact and electric.

Kia HabaNiro

The HabaNiro by Kia is a “spicy” compact EV complete with level five autonomous driving, butterfly doors, and a driving range of over 300 miles. This “Everything Car” has been designed for city dwellers and suburbanites alike.
