The dramatic shape of the Futuron concept vehicle is also supported by a fully-electric powertrain. Then a high capacity battery is also installed under its cabin floor, which is able to provide energy for its four powerful in-wheel electric motors. As the results in a low center of gravity and an e-AWD system which is said to provide a quick response to the driver's input.

Then the KIA Futuron Concept' autonomous capability is reflected in the spacious and flexible interior design. Its two front seats are made of flexible material and can offer a straight driving position, or a leaning rest position. When the self-driving mode is activated, the front seats on the rest position while the steering wheel enters/pulls.
The 'Star Cloud' lighting system and dragon skin scale motifs on the door create a connection to the exterior, with a ventilation system placed behind the dragon skin scales as well. Another striking interior element is the cockpit area surrounding the driver which is also equipped with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) system, which flows out of the driver's side door and winds the steering wheel in a smooth curve. This effectively combines the instrument cluster directly with an audio-visual display in the center of the dashboard. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]
