The EV version of the Kia Niro will be on the market soon and be ready for you to have the electric drive you’re looking for. This SUV is one of the few small EV models that rides higher and gives you more versatility than any other SUV on the market and now it will be offered in two different EV versions to make sure you have the range, the power, and the qualities you want when you take it for a drive. Let’s take a look at what the Kia e-Niro will offer.
The Basic Version of the e-Niro
The starting point for the new electric version of the Kia Niro will give you a 39.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. While what this battery pack offers may not mean much initially, the fact that you could drive for 193 miles on a single charge does make a difference. The battery is attached to a motor that provides 134 horsepower and makes it possible for you to reach sixty mph pretty quickly and have a reasonable range of driving that you’re sure to enjoy when you take this SUV out on the road and put it to work.
The Kia Model that has more
If you’re looking for more from your Kia e-Niro, there’s a version of this SUV that makes use of a 64 kWh battery pack for the drive you’re looking for. This model is able to deliver up to 301 miles of driving range to give you the ride you want. This figure can be improved to nearly 382 miles on an urban circuit, which means you should expect to receive a range that’s between these two numbers when you make this the e-Niro model that you choose to drive every day.
Significant Styling Changes for the e-Niro
In order to visually separate this SUV from the rest, the EV model offers you reworked bumpers, 17-inch wheels, blue exterior accents, and a more aerodynamic body. There are ten paint colors to choose from in the e-Niro to give you the color you want. On the inside, the changes you’ll see include a rotary-dial shifter, paddles behind the steering wheel, and a pair of seven-inch displays to give you the look and the readings you want to experience when you take this SUV out for a drive around town.
Ready to Drive
