Most auto manufacturers unveil their latest at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which started today. Kia is giving that a skip and spinning some new stuff at CES.

The Kia Ray EV, which will not be available in the U.S., is one vehicle seen in Vegas today. It will be sold exclusively in Korea, but puts the Hyundai-owned manufacturer in the electric vehicle market.

The Ray EV does 0-60 in just under 16 seconds and tops out at 80 mph. But, it does 86 miles on one charge. It fully charges in 6 hours, but in only 25 minutes in fast-charge mode.

Can’t wait to see these in a Mission Impossible movie!
