Kia Telluride has been one of the surprises of the koreans in this Hall of Detroit. This prototype anticipates the vision of a great SUV by Kia, designed to compete with cars such as the Chevrolet Tahoe, even though for positioning, Kia would like to compete with the Range Rover. With an appearance similar to vehicles such as the Bentley Bentayga, the Telluride is a – in hybrid vehicle with some very innovative solutions. If you cause a good impression, Kia even could produce it in series. How do you stay?
Its design looks like an amalgam of designs already known, a mixture of a bit strange in our opinion.
Built on the platform of the new Kia Sorento, the Telluride Concept is articulated as a large SUV, whose train thruster is a system plug-in hybrid. The gasoline engine is a 3.5 V6 with 270 horsepower, teamed to an electric motor of 170 HP. the total power of The system is 400 HP, and thanks to this, this SUV five meters shoes with wheels of 22 inches is able to consume just 7 l/100 km in the cycle of highway american. We discovered that it is prototype very technological when entering in your car.
The driver handles all the systems of infoentrentenimiento from multiple screens, we also available for second-row passengers. Its control is called a “Swipe Command”, a name developed for a advanced system of gestural control. Kia has used for the first time pieces printed in 3D mass production for this vehicle, anticipating future techniques of production. This SUV has seven seats, in a seating configuration identical to that of a great minivan.
If the public shows a great interest for a large SUV, Kia could be considered mass production.
The two middle seats are butacones independent, with a third row in the form of a bench, drop down behind the middle row. Its middle seats can be reclined almost completely, and are imbued with several sensors that monitor our vital signs. If they detect that we have jet-lag after a long-haul flight for example – in the roof system, the Light Emitted Rejuvenation we give with a play of light treatment that will cure our jet-lag. Theoretically.
If this works, I want a Telluride, I come to find at the airport. Solution is a prototype, but it demonstrates that the health is going to open up step little by little in the world of cars as Audi has also shown us. Aesthetically, the Kia Telluride is… atypical. We did not expect a big SUV with a design that seems inspired in a multitude of rivals in its segment. Despite having a strong image and personality – that huge calender and optics LED – his appearance is very similar to that of a Range Rover.
The opening of its rear door is a suicide, and its surface glazed, angular. In behind we have some optical quite similar to that of a Volvo XC90 and a pillar D also really similar. It is still a prototype, so I ask your opinion. What should Kia produce a car as well?
