One of the most unexpected debuts at the 2010 SEMA Show was the Kia Forte Hybrid Concept. Kia said that the concept proves that a compact hybrid sedan doesn’t have to be all that boring and we kind of agree.
Produced by Kinetic Motorsports, the Kia Forte Hybrid Concept combines a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine fueled by liquefied petroleum gas (propane) and lithium polymer battery pack. Kia didn’t provide any technical specs so we’re not really sure how fuel-efficient the concept is.
The Kia Forte Hybrid Concept also gets some body panel enhancements, a lowered stance, aluminum alloy wheels and low-rolling resistance tires, interior panel treatments feature custom enhancements and a 1200 watt Infinity 2 audio system.
