Kumho Fortis Concept
Kumho, the well-known Korean tire manufacturer, is wondering along with the rest of the world if an electric SUV is upon us. It’s no wonder that the tire giant took the initiative and created this Kumho Fortis Concept, their vision for an eco-friendly SUV. How green exactly? For starters, the body panels of this concept will be molded from recycled rubber. Kumho made the coolest feature of this SUV lie on the tires, of course. The tires deflate when traveling off-road, a series of metal lugs exposed for ultimate traction and inflate when you hit the road. Nice. No word yet if Kumho will pursue the concept. Why not? Looks like a neat idea.
