Kia's Electric Dreams Are Finally Sparking Into Life With Niro SUV

Kia has unveiled a new all-electric version of Niro. Due to receive its global debut at the Paris Motor Show in September, the Niro EV was designed at Kia’s design centres in California, USA and Namyang, Korea.

Taking inspiration from the Niro EV Concept unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Niro EV features an exclusive radiator grille, 'futuristic' air intake and arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights.

The Niro EV is powered by a next-generation electric vehicle powertrain, using new production technologies earmarked for Kia EVs.

Equipped with a high-capacity 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, the Niro EV will be able to drive a claimed 236 miles on a single charge with zero emissions, or up to 149 miles on an optional 39.2 kWh battery system.

The Niro EV will go on sale in Korea during the second half of 2018 and be introduced to other markets in due course.
