Kia Niro Electric Spy Shots Surface
We spied the Kia Niro EV out testing in Germany alongside its close cousin, the Hyundai Kona EV.
Along with the Kona EV, the Niro EV is one of the most highly anticipated electric vehicles coming in the near future.
Both will show up in 2018 (likely early in the year, or perhaps even at the very end of this year for the electric Hyundai) and there’s already talk of Hyundai-Kia putting them out in decent numbers too.
These two electric cousins excite us not only because they’ll be volume vehicles. Range is expected to be decent too. Both the Kona and Niro are expected to be offered in two battery size: 39.2 kWh and 64.2 kWh. Range, with the bigger battery, will likely be in the 210-mile area, which is more than ample enough for most users.
These spy pics, the first of the Kia Niro EV, don’t reveal much, but we do get a sense of the size of the vehicle and a few other minor details. The spy photographer notes:
“The looks of the EV version will differ slightly with a charging port on the left side of the grille as we can see on the camouflage. We also notice that the fog lights have a new place and shape reminding of the fog lights of the Kia Stonic.”
