Korea’s Kia Corporation, commonly referred to as Kia, manufactures autos based in Seoul, South Korea. The new Kia Niro EV marks a new, exciting chapter of electric mobility. It adds heaps of style and excitement to eco-friendly driving. Electricity is a key feature of this vehicle, which includes a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery-electric variant.
In the 39.2 kWh version, the motor drives an electric drive with a rating of 100 kW (134 hp) and torque of 395 Nm (291.3 lb-ft), which is good for 288 km (179 mi) on one charge according to WLTP. In the US, the Niro EV has an official EPA range of 239 miles on a full charge. It has a greater range when equipped with the 64-kWh version, which has a more powerful 150 kW driver.
There’s no reason to believe that the Niro EV will fare any worse than other Kia models, even though it’s a relatively new model. Kia is known for reliable cars, which is why all of its models come with a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
Ultimately, no one wants to buy a vehicle that wasn’t designed with safety in mind. For example, the 2015 model earned a ‘Good’ rating in every crashworthiness test, as well as a ‘Superior’ rating for front crash prevention: vehicle-to-vehicle.
According to KIA, a Niro depreciates 55% after 5 years and has a resale value of $13,944, assuming the vehicle is in good condition and averages 12,000 miles per year.
