The automobile industry is increasingly waking up to the potential of 3D printing technology, in part due to its swift prototyping abilities, and maybe in addition in part due to Local Motors’ excellent work with 3D printing cars. Various big names in the car manufacturing world have begun adopting 3D printing devices as basic prototyping tools, but Kia is now may already set to take things to the next level. In anticipation of this week’s Detroit Auto Show, the South Korean developer has revealed which the upcoming Kia Telluride – a new sizeable SUV concept – will showcase an interior partially realized with high quality 3D printing devices.
Car enthusiasts everywhere were may already somewhat surprised which Kia returned to the SUV concept, which they deserted back in 2011 (anyone remember the Borrego/Mohave?), but we are obviously mostly interested in the 3D printed components embedded into this SUV. Named after a town in Colorado known for skiing resorts and a picturesque mountain view, the Telluride is especially of reaching a new level of technological excellence. “[The Telluride] pushes the boundaries of technology and luxury with unique in-cabin health-and-wellness technology,” the South Korean engineers revealed. “[It steers] Kia’s design language in a bold new direction”.
3D printed parts are thus simply just one new element car fans can look forward to, and Kia has revealed which these parts will add a distinct and modern flair to areas such as the dashboard, the door panels and the steering wheel. But, the wording has been kept as vague as possible, leaving it unclear whether or not the final vehicles will showcase 3D printed parts or simply just parts created through 3D printing technology. It is, yet, expected which the car showcased at the Detroit Auto Show will showcase 3D printed components.
What is clear is which high quality 3D printing technologies will be utilized, featuring machines which ‘sprays’ sintered plastics into layers preceding hardening them using photovoltaic light lasers. Kia adds which this technology has may already proven capable of creating high quality, precise parts capable of withstanding the necessary stress (while in addition shaving a lot of time of development), so why not in fact 3D print the parts?
The Kia Borrego/Mohave (depending on where you live), the previous Kia SUV model.
In short, much can be expected of the Kia Telluride, which will doubtlessly wow SUV lovers everywhere. Kia has further revealed which the car will be perfectly
crammed with technology and luxury, which include a “unique in-cabin health-and-wellness technology”.
