Kia electrocuted people with 1 million volts to show off the performance of its EV9 electric SUV.

Famous car enthusiast, model and driver Jodie Kidd was electrocuted by a million volts of electricity while demonstrating the power of a Kia EV9. The automaker said she was fine despite having a million volts of electricity running through her body. The car brand also revealed that the stunt was performed to promote the EV9 SUV, in which Kidd was given a chain mail suit that acts as a Faraday cage and was placed next to the Lightning machine. The suit protects her from the millions of volts of electricity emitted by the machines. The stunt also allowed for arcs to shoot from the models’ fingers.
