Las Vegas — Kia Motors America used the CES 2016 technology trade show to tease a concept car it will show at next week’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Korean automaker revealed a single teaser image of its KCD12 concept, which looks like a large SUV.

“Conceived at the automaker’s California design studio, the concept offers an abundance of advanced technology — including state-of-the-art health-and-wellness technology — and takes Kia’s design language in a bold new direction, suggesting styling of a possible future premium large SUV in the brand’s lineup,” the automaker said in a statement.

In addition to the image, Kia revealed its plan to bring a fully autonomous car to the market by 2030.
