Vivid Sydney 2024 is now underway, and after stealing last year’s show with its astonishing Helix concept installation, Kia has returned to up the ante with the soon-to-launch EV5 and flagship EV9 showcased across a pair of must-see attractions: the Kia Kaleidescope and Kia Kinetic.

As our nights take on the winter chill, Vivid always brings the Harbour City to life via a vast array of innovative installations and thrilling light shows, coaxing Sydneysiders out of our state of hibernation.


This year, Kia’s twin offerings serve as a major highlight, thanks to a stunning mix of LEDs, projections, and an eye-tickling look at Kia’s vision for the future of motoring.

Read on to discover more about Kia’s remarkable offerings at Vivid Sydney 2024.

Kia Kaleidescope

This mesmerising installation will give you a closer look at Kia’s incoming all-electric medium SUV, the incredible EV5. Consisting of a textural projection map which lights up Kia’s soon-to-be-launched vehicle in brilliant colour, the installation transforms the EV5 into a kaleidoscope of pattern and movement that perfectly captures the SUV’s fun, innovative nature.

Using a diverse range of cutting-edge visual effects, the showcase sees the body of the EV5 transform through light into liquid metal, overgrown vines, and many other compelling motifs, which are designed to highlight the creativity and imagination behind Kia’s EV range.

While highlighting the brand’s use of recyclable materials and its commitment to delivering top-of-the-range technology and safety, the Kia Kaleidescope delivers a unique piece of visual splendour that will undoubtedly delight crowds as much as the EV5 that sits at its core.
