Kia’s new EV — short range, cool name

Kia has revealed its first electric vehicle — the Kia Ray EV. They call it a city car because it has a range of only 86 miles on a charge, which is plenty for around-town driving.

It’s currently only available in Korea, but could be a glimpse of things to come in the U.S. as well.

One of the novel features of the new Kia Ray EV is a navigation system that will guide the driver to the nearest electric charging stations.

The Ray EV also has a navigation system specially designed for electric vehicles, with a 7-inch screen that and provides information that is important to EV drivers, like the location of the nearest charging stations. The display also shows a circular area representing the vehicle’s range, so drivers can see which destinations they can reach without recharging the battery.
