Kia debuted different cockpits demonstrating technology for the Niro EV concept. The first shows off a gesture control system allowing users to make different gestures to adjust volume, ventilation, and music settings. Another cockpit showcases a feature that allows rear passengers to listen to different music from front passengers, made possible by noise-cancellation technology creating two separate zones in the car. These exhibits also have what Kia calls the world's first in-vehicle 5G connection and facial recognition tech that will disable many features of a car if it doesn't recognize a driver.

Power comes from a 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-polymer battery pack and a 150-kW electric motor. Kia says the concept achieves a driving range of 238 miles (383 km)--matching the Chevrolet Bolt's EPA-rated range exactly.
