Kia's Autonomous Vehicles at the Chicago Auto Show

Kia’s Autonomous Vehicles Show Some Excitement

Cars that can drive themselves aren’t too far off in the future. In fact, many of us may get to experience this within our lifetimes. While getting to sit back and relax while the car does all the driving sounds great, it is pretty boring if you think about it.

Kia’s autonomous vehicles, which it showed off at the Chicago Auto Show, however, are anything but boring. They take autonomous technology and use it in ways you likely never imagined.

One of the most impressive is the Kia Sorento Ski Gondola concept. With this vehicle as your partner, you’ll be able to ski or snowboard anywhere you want. Instead of wheels, this vehicle uses tracks that will enable it to scale some steep slopes and take you to the top. The spacious interior has plenty of room for passengers wearing bulky ski clothes. Once you reach the top, hop out, and head down the slope, and the Ski Gondola will follow.

Another incredible vehicle is the Kia Niro Triathlon. With this vehicle as part of your team, it will make rigorous training so much easier. It has been customized to fit all the necessary equipment and can lead the way while you ride behind in a laser LED-illuminated bike path. When you reach the end, climb into the Niro and relax in the Human Touch zero gravity chair while the Niro drives you home.

Which concept would you like to try out? Here at Gossett Kia South, we would love to go skiing with the Sorento Ski Gondola.
