The new e-Niro successfully combines two of the fastest growing trends - crossover styling with electrification. The redesigned cabin incorporates Kia's first rotary gear selector and the horizontal trim line on the dashboard emphasises width and space inside.
The revised styling clearly identifies the e-Niro apart from the Niro Hybrid and PHEV and the signature design cues like the aerodynamic 'tiger-nose' grille ensures e-Niro is easily recognisable as a Kia. The grille handily doubles up as a neatly integrated charging point with batteries located under the floor for a low centre of gravity and satisfying driving experience.
The dashboard is split into an upper display area and a lower control area with fewer, simpler switches. The long 2,700mm wheelbase and width of 1,805mm creates ample space for five adults with a boot capacity enhanced to 324 due to under floor mounted battery pack. Shapely front seats offer excellent all- round support and luxurious soft-touch materials and trim details attest to high-quality fit and finish.
The e-Niro has a combined driving range of 282 miles or 382 miles in a city environment. It has a 201bhp (150kW) pure electric drivetrain and can be recharged to 80 per cent battery life in just 54 minutes using a 100kW charger, and with a 50kW charger, the battery can be replenished to 80 per cent in 75 minutes.
