This is something interesting. The pictures we have are tempting, indeed. Kia Motors has announced that they will be unveiling the new all-electric city car concept ‘Pop’ at the Paris Motor Show next month. The zero-emission concept car follows last year’s Ray plug-in hybrid and the company’s announcement of the ambition to become a leading supplier of fuel-cell cars by 2015. Kia must be planning similar grand ideas for electrics and plug-ins.

The car which can seat three passengers, two up front and a third person who can sit behind (unlike the Gordon Murray T.25′s three-seater arrangement which has two passengers either side of the driver), is just around the same length as a Toyota IQ at about 3 meters. Additional information on the Kia Pop is expected to be released at the motor show which starts on September 30. We are just as eager as you are to know more about this cute looking Pop.
