Automotive April Fool's pranks


Aero-Soul not so aero-dynamic



Rather than cheating the wind, South Korea's Kia Motors announced a bizarre system of harnessing wind energy. Called the Air Propulsion and Retardation Installation Line (um, APRIL), it could be optionally fitted to the Kia Soul to save previous fuel. The APRIL system uses ungainly front and rear apparatus to measure wind speed. When the breeze is strong enough, the system deploys large panels from the front and rear bumpers to capture the power of the wind. Kia boasted that the system could reduce fuel consumption by an astounding 25 to 40 per cent, and generously increase brake-pad life. Apparently, the APRIL system both sucks and blows at the same time.


April fools

Guiz, since cooperations have their own identity, Kia made their own little joke.

Hope you all enjoyed, i thought it was a bit funny, too bad it took me a second to realize :[

You know the automotive industry is going downhill when pursuing clean energy is literally a joke to them. Still I got a good laugh out of it, especially because I re-read that anagram APRIL like four times and still didn't catch on that it was an April fools goof.
