Pop! Electric Kia city car breaks cover
* Toyota IQ-sized car for Paris motor show * Seats three people, just 3m long * No on sale date, but expect ambitious plans...
Kia will unveil this cute all-electric Pop city car concept at the Paris Motor Show in September.
The zero tailpipe emission concept car is around the same length as a Toyota IQ, but seats three passengers, not four.
While the Gordon Murray T.25's three-seater arrangement has two passengers either side of the driver, as in the McLaren F1 supercar, the Pop appears to have two up front and a third passenger sat behind on what looks like a chaise longue.
The all-electric concept car follows last year's Ray plug-in hybrid and the company's announcement of the ambition to become the leading supplier of fuel-cell cars by 2015.
