Electric concept hopes to bring cool back to boxy commuter cars

This week's 2011 Seoul Motor Show has a lot of surprises in store for car enthusiasts, but an early look revealed a rather bold concept compact car called the Naimo.

Designed by Korea's Kia Motors, the Naimo is equipped with an electric engine capable of 125 miles on one charge and boasting speeds of up to 93 miles per hour. While the company currently has no plans to introduce the model commercially, the car is the latest in a series of designs geared to make switching your driving habits from gas-powered to the world of sustainable electricity-powered motoring the cooler choice.
