For at least five years now, the automotive industry has really started exploring the limits of autonomous driving technology. Recently, at the Chicago Auto Show, Kia showed how autonomous driving technology can be more than just getting you from point A to point B.
The first vehicle on the list is the Kia Sorento Ski Gondola. This amazing concept opens up a whole new world of skiing or snowboarding for extreme enthusiasts. Instead of wheels, this concept comes equipped with tank-like snow tracks that can tackle nearly any slope. It will bring you to the top, you hope out and ski down, and then it will follow you down and even lend you a hand if you get stuck.
Next on the list is the impressive Kia Niro Triathlon. Training to be a triathlete can be an arduous task, but this Kia Niro makes it better than ever. The concept comes equipped to carry all of the necessary equipment. Then, the Niro can light up a path with laser LED lights that illuminate a bike lane behind the vehicle. When you reach the end of your training, climb aboard and relax in the Human Touch zero gravity reclining chair while the Nero drives you home.
These are just two of the three concepts Kia put on display in Chicago. Here at Gossett Kia, we think the Niro Triathlon is pretty incredible.
