Kia Motors launches Niro EV in South Korea

Kia Niro EV can be driven over 380 kms with single charge

Kia Motors recently revealed the all-new electric version of Niro at the 5th International Electric Vehicle Expo in Jeju, Korea.

Designed in California, USA and Namyang, the Niro EV incorporates the practicality and appeal of a compact SUV in a sleek, aerodynamic body, with subtle sculptured surfaces.

Inspired by the Niro EV Concept that was unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, the Niro EV features an exclusive radiator grille, futuristic air intake and arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights.

With a ‘Clean and High-tech’ design concept, the slim character line and tapered rear windows emphasize the car’s sleek profile, while allowing greater room for the Niro EV’s muscular wheel arches.

Using new production technologies earmarked for Kia EVs, the Niro EV is powered by a next-generation of electric vehicle powertrain. Equipped with a high-capacity 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, this electric car can be driven over 380 kms on a single charge with zero emissions, or up to 40 km on an optional 39.2 kWh battery system.

The Niro EV will demonstrate the considerable steps the brand has made in delivering comfortable, fun-to-drive vehicles that lead the way in zero emissions motoring.
