Kia Niro EV - electric crossover with 380 km range

Kia Niro EV

On the safety front, the EV retains all of the features of other Niro models, including frontal collision avoidance assist (FCA), lane keeping assist (LKA), smart cruise control (SCC), driver attention warning (DAW) and back collision warning (BCW).

As expected for 2018, Kia unveiled a new all-electric version of their subcompact Niro SUV at the 5th International Electric Vehicle Expo in Jeju, Korea today.

Design-wise the Niro EV is similar to the standard version, aside from the distinctive filled-in "parametric" grille, which resembles the "interactive display panel" of the concept version shown at CES.

Compared to the Kia Soul EV that marked the brand's first entry into the electric-car market, Kia says big progress has been made in range and usability.

It seems like you're hell-bent on trying to make sure whatever image you want to tell about this White House stays. And it leads to a fight, a physical fight. "I have to pick up for my colleague Sarah Sanders there".

Kia has not provided any power output figures for the EV, but like the Kona EV they should vary depending on the battery pack size. The top variant of the electric vehicle will be equipped with a battery set to 64 kWh, providing a maximum range of 380 miles.

Kia says it received 5000 orders for the Niro EV in Korea, where it will be go on sale later this year alongside the existing hydrogen fuel cell and plug-in hybrid versions.

There's no word yet on whether existing models will continue - the Niro is now available as a straight-up hybrid, powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, or as a plug-in hybrid version named Niro PHEV. If both remain available, the Niro EV will complete the range to offer the same hybrid, plug-in and all-electric options as the Hyundai Ioniq. Kia sold 23,647 units of the Niro hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants past year.
