kia-soul-futuristic-eco-friendly-carSmart Design has come up with this interesting concept car called Kia Soul, which is meant to ideally fit in a constantly changing, sophisticated environment.

The eco-friendly vehicle looks rather a simple, but inside you will find a technology-enriched passenger compartment. The interior of Kia Soul was designed with simplicity and cleanliness in mind.

Being designed as a perfect mean of urban transportation, this green vehicle includes a heads-up screen showing necessary information that appears in front of the driver.

In addition, Kia Soul, as part of the path to the future of transportation, features an array of LEDs incorporated in the glass. These LEDs are included at the bottom of the side and rear windows. Such technology allows displaying information as well as showing animations.

It is worth mentioning that the driver can create his or her own profile, changing the car’s settings to their personal driving style. With screen-printed solar cells mounted on its roof, the vehicle takes advantage of solar energy to power some of its systems and cutting the level of carbon emissions.
