The word

Kia Venga EV

The concept from Kia is the Venga MPV body with the drive train replaced by an electric 80kW motor (280Nm, 206lb-ft) and a 24kWh Lithium-ion Polymer battery which gives a range of 112 miles per charge.

The little four-door does 0-62 in 11.8 seconds and has a top speed of 87mph. A 50kW quick charging cycle is also available, charging the batteries to 80% in only 20 minutes. Normal charging requires 8 hours to full.

And so ...

Very nicely done with this concept, though no production dates or price tag was given.
