7. Kia Soul Hybrid Concept
Based on the upcoming Soul compact crossover suv, the Kia Soul Hybrid Concept represents Kia's first foray into hybrid technology. The Soul hybrid powertrain is connected to a continuously variable transmission and equipped with Hyundai's ISG (Idle Stop&Go) system that automatically shuts the engine off when the vehicle is stopped in heavy traffic. Kia claims the Soul Hybrid Concept will get 48 mpg and contribute to reduced carbon dioxide emissions over the base Soul as well.
