You sense from the press material accompanying the Kia Niro, on show here at IAA, that Kia is just a tiny bit pleased with its latest concept. And to be fair, it has every reason to be. Just look at it - this thing is magnificent. It was unveiled at a packed event just around the corner from the main show in Frankfurt and it was greeted with near unanimous acclaim.

And although - for reasons we're about to explain - the Kia Niro is unlikely to reach full production, Kia does raise the tantalising prospect that it 'could be close to on-road reality...if the public wants it'. We say we do want it. Thank you.
