Here's a quote from the article:
According to Kia, the North American version of the 2019 Niro EV will come standard with a heat pump to more efficiently assist with cabin heating and the dedicated battery heater will be an optional feature. In the 2020 Soul EV, both the heat pump and battery heater are listed as optional features

Hello yticolev - To really explained this part, North America has 3 country's and Kia in Korea has production cycles.. that means that when they built Niro's, from a X date too a Y date, they will make for exemple: HEV's for USA models. All code trims will be built for this country.. like yours.. LX w/t advanced tech package.. wich does not exist in Canada. and EX trim with Premium Package,
wich does not exist in Canada, etc.. etc..



USA production cycle is ahead of 6 to 12 months over Canadians production cycle. That means that our FIRST models will be sent to Vancouver port 6 months to 1 year after you receive yours.


Dec 16, you got your HEV and Dec 2017, we got ours.
Dec 17, you got your PHEV, and Dec 18, we got ours.


For the BEV, EV, e-Niro whatever you want too call it, North Korea has some delivered, Europe will have theirs soon, For USA, i would say, not before the summer and in our maple leaf country, we hope before the end of 2019...


Other example: Mexico has only the HEV model for 2019, and 2 trims are available. And just as an example the EX trim has LED headligts like the US PHEV EX Premium trim!


So no, North America models and trims are not made at the same time with the same equipement. That is why, it's called a "production cycle"...

Good news.!!



"optional cold-weather package, which includes a heated steering wheel plus a battery heater and a heat pump for the cabin."


It will be an option either in the EX or EX Premium trim in the USA models, but here, the only EV trim called the SX (like your Ex Premium) will have it as a standard equipement.!

I don't know if that is an American phrase, but I think we would call that a production run.

US Niro EV Cold Weather Package 2.0

@map70 - this is what I'm seeing as well.


The US version Niro EV's Cold Weather Package 2.0 (includes Battery Heater and Heat Pump) is available ONLY as an Option, is not standard equipment, but is optional on both EX and EX Premium models for the $1080 MSRP.

I would watch out for that trick. There are some options at are options, and some that are manditory but still listed as an option. Like for instance, when I bought on of my old fords, it listed Daytime Running lights, except you had no choice but to have them as they are required for Canada. I am sure they listed a Winter Package too, and when pressed as to what that is, was told it was defrost mode, and the rear defroster. I don't think they will ley you buy a car without them.

This looks correct and not a scam, although the build & price is now on Kia's website but no mention of the heater. In the Stickers I have seen then seem to remove the EX Premium option for the homelink and ventilated seats... I have no idea why...
