Kia Telluride
The first- and second-row seats include a series of diamond-cut openings in the seatbacks with embedded sensors that capture the occupant’s vital health information, displaying it on door panel screens and synchronizing it with a Light Emitted Rejuvenation system utilizing a massive, wing-shaped LED panel mounted beneath the sunroof. The LED panel displays a pattern of therapeutic light to treat desynchronosis (jetlag) and improve energy levels. Telluride also introduces new Swipe Command technology with a thin, touch-sensitive band in the second-row console; rear-seat passengers select media with the swipe of a hand. Second-row passengers listen through a premium Harman Kardon audio system or via a set of portable Harman Kardon headphones that charge wirelessly when stowed in the console. The dashboard, door panels and steering wheel include Kia’s first use of 3-D-printed components.
Future Plans: While no official announcement has been made regarding the Telluride, we could see a new 7-passenger crossover in Kia’s future based on this stylish SUV concept. Many of the high-tech features could also have a future — but don’t expect the suicide doors to make the cut.
