Most concept looking production car ever

Kia decided to show off its new production ready Ray EV at CES 2012 in Las Vegas rather than the major international auto show going on right now in Detroit. The Ray is one majorly ugly vehicle IMHO with some of the strangest lines and design I have ever seen. The car in the photos hardly looks production ready to me.

The car is a full electric vehicle with no generator or gas motor. It has an electric driving range of 86 miles per charge and a top speed of 81 mph. The car has a 16.4kWh lithium polymer battery pack good for ten years.

The charge time for the battery pack is claimed to be six hours on a 220V outlet and only 25 minutes in fast charge mode. What exactly fast charge mode uses other than a different charge port under the faux gas cap is unknown. The Ray also has an EV specific navigation system that shows locations of chargers on your route.
