The Kia Niro crossover has always been a vehicle that’s synonymous with fun, power, and torque. But until now, we haven’t seen much in the way of electric or hybrid options for those that want to have their crossover and help the planet too. However, at the 2018 LA Auto Show, Kia debuted the 2019 Kia Niro EV to provide the best of both worlds. As can be expected from Kia, the results were very impressive…and Jake Sweeney Kia is excited to share with you what to expect.

The fully-electric 2019 Kia Niro EV is an impressive vehicle in terms of range, and it only gets better from there. With a wide range of 239 miles, the Kia Niro will get you around town with ease but also take you on extended adventures into the wild, all on a single charge. But when the power goes down, the Combined Charging System DC fast-charge puts you back on the road quicker than ever, with a whopping 80 percent of the battery being replenished in just 75 minutes, or just about 100 miles in 30 minutes.

However, just being an EV doesn’t mean the Kia Niro EV loses power – the electric motor provides a powerful 201 horsepower with an impressive 291 ft-lb of torque. And with four drive modes – Eco, Normal, Sport, and Eco+, you are truly in control of how much power you need versus how much power you want to save.

And the technology doesn’t stop there – a 7-inch touchscreen with integrated Android Auto® and Apple CarPlay® come standard, along with Bluetooth® connectivity and wireless smart phone charging provide modern conveniences in a vehicle that is completely powered to be better for the planet. So come in to our Florence, KY Kia dealership and discover the power of the Niro EV when it hits our lots soon. See you there!
