Kia's green dream
WITH fuel prices reaching record levels never before has such attention been focused on eco motoring.
Getting the most out of each precious gallon is now top priority and keeping cars lean and green is the name of the game for every car manufacturer.
So called alternative fuels are now big business with auto companies across the globe investing millions.
But Korean car maker Kia has gone one step further by spending £29million on the world’s first research centre specifically designed to develop the cars of the future.
In conjunction with its sister company Hyundai, the Mabuk environment centre near the Korean capital Seoul is mapping out the shape of the automotive industry for generations to come.
