Kai unveils Concept

Kia Trail'ster Concept

The Kia Trail’ster concept; a part-turbocharged, part-electric, light off-roader and follows the Track’ster and GT4 Stinger out of the company’s Irvine, California design studio, was unveiled recently at the Chicago Auto Show.

Power is sent through a six-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels of the Trail’ster 1.6-liter turbocharged four, making 185 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant is engine supplemented by an electric all-wheel-drive system on the rear axle.

Kia says the system is intended for low-speed assist, enhanced launches and improved traction off road. There’s no mechanical link between the engine and electric motor.

The system gets power from a 1.2-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery powering a 27-kW, 270-volt electric motor that delivers 35 hp and 100 lb-ft of torque and it also serves as an energy recovery system. Total system output is pegged at 220 hp and 285 lb-ft of torque. It uses a hybrid starter/generator for the stop/start system.
