2010 SEMA: Kia Forte Hybrid Concept shows green doesn’t have to be boring

Kia Forte Hybrid Concept

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.
