The 2019 Niro EV, which is available at two trim levels — EX and EX Premium — is equipped with an electric motor rated at 201 horsepower and 291 lb-ft of torque and a lithium ion polymer battery rated at 64 kWh. To not impede passenger space or comfort, the battery package is discreetly and smartly stored under the vehicle’s floor.

Optimal efficiency is protected in the 2019 Niro EV thanks to its four responsive driving modes (Eco, Normal, Sport, and Eco+), Brake and Hold System, Smart Regen System, Smart Eco Pedal Guide, and 17-inch alloy wheels

The 2019 Niro EV boasts plenty of room for all your stuff with 53 cubic feet of cargo room when you fold the backseat down and 18.5 cubic feet of space with the backseat up. Adding to your organizational needs (and desire for a clutter-free cabin) is the center console equipped with three USB ports, storage compartments, and cup holders. Seat upholstery is signature to the Niro EV and boasts blue highlights, which can be complemented by available black and blue “holographic” trim on the door.

On the outside, heads will turn due to the Niro EV’s impressive design, which features “Arrowhead” LED daytime running lights, closed off grille, blue-trimmed rear and front bumper fascias, an EcoDynamics blue surround-accented lower air intake, and rocker panels that sport a new shape for the 2019 model.
