If you’re a fan of the Kia Niro, we have some thrilling information for you: the upcoming all-electric model is on its way and it’s even more impressive than we could’ve predicted. We have some details to share today regarding this most exciting and efficient vehicle, and you should stay tuned with our blog to learn more about it in the future.
The future version of the Kia Niro-EV is a subcompact electric crossover that has shown to get up to 301 miles on a full charge during testing. Using the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure, experts have determined this range could extend as high as 382 miles, and we can’t wait to see how it performs in the urban setting.
Thanks to a super strong 64 kilowatt-hour battery, paired with a 100-kilowatt fast charger, this model can also recharge up to 80 percent in less than an hour. This comes to about 4.46 miles of range for every one minute of charging. A few moments of charging can easily set you up for your daily commute.
Not only is the range and charging speed of this battery special, it’s also significantly smaller than other batteries that are not performing nearly as well in the market. The stats are practically unheard of, and these details can make a real difference in the day to day life of Kia Niro drivers.
While we don’t have the details of when this model may appear in the US, we have high hopes that this is only the tip of our efficiency innovation iceberg.
