Kia Forte Hybrid

The Forte hybrid concept uses liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) rather than gasoline to power the engine in the hybrid, making it a much cleaner alternative. The Forte Hybrid Concept was showcased at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend.

The hybrid concept was created by Kinetic Motorsports and combined a 1.6L propane-fueled engine with lithium polymer batteries and a hybrid-electric drive train.

The concept includes a lot of sporty enhancements from Kinetic, like a giant stereo system and alloy wheels.
