Kia Ray concept was designed by the team of Kia’s American design studio, and they is intended to give some direction to the company’s idea for a plug-in hybrid vehicle. It is a preview of the direction Kia is considering for a future plug-in hybrid vehicle–one that appears to be stylish and sporty.

We’re guessing the Ray shares its plug-in hybrid underpinnings with the Hyundai Blue Will, which means a 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder mated to an electric motor powered by a lithium polymer battery pack. Word is, these gubbins will also make their way into the 2011 Hyundai Sonata for a production plug-in hybrid with a Chevy Volt-rivaling electric only range of 40 miles.

The production version of the Kia Ray concept has not yet been programmed for production, The company also plans to sell Liquefied Petroleum Gas hybrid vehicles in Korea within the next 12 months.but the carmaker start testing petrol and diesel hybrid vehicles in Britain this year.
