Kia Niro Electric


Current Model
The second-generation Niro once again offers buyers three efficient modes of transport, with traditional hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fully-electric models. The electric version produces 201-hp, with an estimated driving range of 253 miles.
As before, the Niro comes only with front-wheel drive. Inside the cabin, the Niro can be outfitted with dual 10.25-inch screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, as well as a head-up display. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability are standard. Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, RCTW, LCA, and LKA.

The Kia Niro EV gets around without gasoline, but it doesn't compromise on comfort or practicality. Its interior is well-appointed, and its elevated seat height and roomy cargo area give the five-passenger, front-drive Niro the versatility of a small SUV.
It has a 239-mile range, which means the Niro EV will outrun some electric cars that cost tens of thousands more. The Niro shares its electric drive with the Hyundai Kona Electric. Like its corporate siblings, it has a 64-kilowatt-hour battery that takes about 10-hours to charge from almost empty using a 240-volt connector. Acceleration is smooth, instant, and silent. We think this EV is more rewarding to drive than the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the Niro. Active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection, BSW, and RCTW.
