Well that didn’t take long, did it?

Fresh off of wowing the crowd at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Kia’s Provo Concept may be headed to production faster than anybody anticipated.

Benny Oeyen, Kia’s European Vice President of Marketing and Product Planning, recently told Auto Express that the Korean automaker is seriously considering building a production model of the Provo Concept.

“The Provo is a possible niche we can venture into," Oeyen said. "Our brand is currently rational, but there’s space for a B-Coupe."

While there’s no immediate timetable for the production of the Provo, Kia’s next step in determining the concept’s production future would be to conduct market research to determine if the model will have the kind of demand that warrants a production model being built.

The automaker’s admission that it has no problem venturing into the B-Coupe market should be a big plus in the side of those wanting to see the Provo get its production green light.

Here’s our two cents on it: if Kia decides to retain the concept’s fantastic exterior while simplifying the interior to adhere to production standards, then we have no qualms about saying that it’s a car the automaker has to have out on the road.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Wow. I would not guess that it is a KIA at first glance. It is because KIA provo car looks very unique. I do not like the thing under the front grille. I hope there will be immediate timetable for the production of the Prov so that it will be available in the market soon.

Nice design and pretty color scheme. I hope they will manage to keep out attention when they will release some infos about the engine.

Looks awesome but I don’t think it will remain like that considering the fact that the grill is too small for such a car.
