Kia e-Niro brings great value for the money.
The most recent episode of Fully Charged was recorded in South Korea, where Jonny Smith had an opportunity to test drive the Kia e-Niro (UK's spec), which turns out to be not only an excellent car, but also great value for the money.
The tested 64 kWh version provides plenty of range, comfortable ride, good connectivity and quick acceleration. Compared to the Hyundai Kona Electric with the same motor and battery, it's bigger, roomier and has more trunk capacity.
"Kia Motors previously communicated that the WLTP combined cycle range for the e-Niro was 485 kilometres (301 miles) for the long-range 64 kWh battery pack, and 312 kilometres (193 miles) for the standard (39.2 kWh) battery pack.Having now re-calculated the car according to the updated methodology, the e-Niro’s new WLTP combined cycle range is 455 kilometres (282 miles) for the long-range model, and 289 kilometres (179 miles) for the standard model.
Kia are communicating with customers who may have already ordered an All-new e-Niro, to explain this discrepancy."
