Do I have any actual use for the Kia Sorrento Ski Gondola concept SUV? No, I don’t even ski, or snowboard, or do anything remotely close to that. I am a “sit in the lodge and drink” kind of guy. But I would be lying if I didn’t say that I hope this collaboration between LUX Motorwerks and Kia gets made. Because I do. I hope they make the Kia Sorrento Ski Gondola and use them for the next Winter Olympics or something. Just knowing these exist would somehow satisfy me.
This thing doesn’t only look cool, it’s got an autonomous driving system, which means you can sit back, relax and let it do all the work. Speaking of sitting, they made the front seats face backwards like a traditional gondola. That’s terrifying for anyone who doesn’t trust technology not to kill them. But don’t worry, although there is no steering wheel, it can be controlled with a tablet placed between the seats. Huzzah!
Would love to have this thing plow my driveway when the next blizzard hits the north east.
