Kia’s Niro compact SUV series has been redesigned and will be available in North America in 2023. At the events of New York International Auto Show, the organization will showcase its three new Electric Vehicle Niro models such as, a plug-in hybrid Niro PHEV, a hybrid Niro HEV and a fully electric Niro Electric Vehicle. Kia aims to sell them across the country, including the completely electric Niro Electric Vehicle, which was before available only in some regions.
Dark-colored door cladding and a aero blade panel are shared by all Niros, giving the car a swoosh-like look. The improvements allow for a fresh low drag coefficient of 0.29, increasing the competence of these front-wheel-drive CUVs. The all-new Kia Niro EV is a forward-thinking vehicle that is practical by design. The car is powered by an electric motor and has a range of up to 378 miles. This makes it the perfect choice for commuters who want to avoid the hassle of charging their car each time they need to use it. Additionally, the Niro EV has been designed with safety in mind, including features like automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist.
Previously, the Niro EV had a smaller 39kWh battery option, but now it only has a larger 64.8kWh package option. But the battery doesn’t get in the way of space. Less than the 30.2 cubic feet of the Tesla Model Y, consumers can get 8 cubic feet more passenger space and a whopping 22.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
The Niro EV also has the Kia EV6’s Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) feature, which allows you to use the Niro EV‘s battery to power your device. However, it uses an older platform instead of the EV6 Hyundai-developed EGMP platform, which allows for DC fast charging up to 350kW. Instead, the Niro EV is maximized with a fast charge of 85kW DC. This is enough to achieve a 10-80 percent charge in about 45 minutes.
At this level, the reformed Niro Electric Vehicle has no price, but the last model price was under $ 40,000. This is not significantly cheaper than the sportier Kia Electric Vehicle 6’s starting price $ 42,000. But if consumer likes the look of a car that isn’t very noticeable and just wants the practicality of a new CUV, the new KiaNiro EV may shine.
