All-electric Kia Niro revealed in Korea with 264-380km range
The all-electric Kia Niro has been revealed in Korea and will go on-sale in that market later this year…it is expected to roll out into other markets.
DESIGNED IN BOTH the US and Korea, the all-electric Kia Niro was revealed at the 5th International Electric Vehicle Expo in Korea yesterday. The production model takes its design cues from the Niro EV Concept from the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas earlier in the year.
Key differentiators from the non-electric model are, an exclusive radiator grille, air intake and arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights.
The Niro EV is available with either a high-capacity 64kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, offering a driving range of around 380 km on a single charge, or up to 240 km on a smaller, optional 39.2kWh battery system. Kia said these systems will be used in other EVs going forward.
Question: More than brands like Tesla, will it be companies like Kia and its EVs that change the way we drive?
