1998 Kia Genesis

Kia’s future minivan concept is the Genesis, which was given an FUV (Family Utility Vehicle) acronym. The vehicle features a pair of huge power-operated gull-wing doors for both front- and rear-seat occupants, six of whom may be accommodated in comfort. Among Kia’s novel ideas incorporated in the vehicle is an "air jet wiper." Multiple nozzles installed in the base of the windshield blow away raindrops with powerful bursts of pressurized air. The Genesis is propelled by a 3.5-L V6 and electronically controlled five-speed automatic transmission provided by the company’s parent, Hyundai. The vehicle measures 4778 mm (188 in) long and has a mass of 1650 kg (3640 lb).
