Early in the spring of 2018, we set out to document how the Kia Sorento, Sportage and Niro are capable of surviving as nomadic creatures in the diverse range of climates and environments found across Canada. What we discovered was a surprising set of adaptations that allow them to cope with the multitude of challenges they encounter. Here are our findings…


Traversing a variety of terrain is a necessary part of nomadic life in Canada. To handle the task, the Sorento and Sportage have developed the ability to adapt to their surroundings by finding a foothold where others might slip.

The Niro is an agile hybrid capable of covering over 900 kilometres between feedings by efficiently using, conserving and even restoring its energy along the way.

Symbiotic Relationships

In exchange for small amounts of energy, the SUVs are able to receive a wide variety of benefits from a much smaller creature found across Canada.
