The front radiator grille flap of the Ray EV covers an electricity inlet for a 220-volt supply for the slow recharge mode. The fast recharge mode inlet is in the same location as the fuel intake of the regular models.
Kia designed the Ray EV to be as safe as gasoline cars. It comes equipped with six air-bags and standard electronic stability features including VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control) and HAC (Hill Assist Control) to prevent rollback.
The lithium ion polymer battery pack of the Ray EV is engineered for a 10-year lifecycle. It is located under the rear seat and cabin floor, instead of creating a hump between the driver and passenger sides.
