Kia Niro EV Now Available for Purchase in Korea
The all-new electric crossover from Kia Motors, the Niro EV, is now available for purchase in Korea. Combining the spacious versatility of a crossover with the advance, eco-friendly technology of a zero-emissions electric vehicle, the Kia Niro EV, with just a single charge, earns a driving range of 385 kilometers.
The all-new Niro EV, which will officially hit the European markets at the end of this year, is positioned to support the Plug-In Hybrid and Hybrid models of the Niro and has already earned 5,000 pre-orders. The beginning of 2019 will mark the Niro EV’s availability in North American markets.
The Niro EV can reach 80 percent battery charge in approximately 54 minutes thanks to the 100kW fast charger. It merely takes 7.8 seconds to go from 0 to 100 kph thanks to the 395 Nm torque-generating 150 kW (204 ps) motor.
In addition to the impressive driving range and responsive motor, the Niro EV will also deliver an extensive list of available safety technologies. Drivers will appreciate the assistance afforded by the available Forward Collision Warning with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Intelligent Stop & Go. The “Level Two” autonomous driving feature of Lane Following Assist helps keep the Niro EV from drifting unintentionally from its lane. By automatically adjusting steering, braking, and acceleration based on the actions of vehicles in front of you, Lane Following Assist helps keep you and other drivers safe on the road.
The Kia Niro EV features an unique exterior accented by a “Clean and High-tech” design and an interior that boasts a light blue trimmed dashboard, a new mood lighting system, and a Kia’s first “dial”-style shift knob.
