Warming up my Kia Niro

I have a silly question...lol...I live in the middle mountains of AZ, I haven't seen it get much colder than 30F degrees night or day. Do I need to warm up my Niro before driving? The reason i ask is...when I start the car its in EV mode about a 1 min or 2 later the engine kicks on...Confused! Thanks in advanced...Sorry if posted or has already been addressed...Im new...

I live in Atlantic Canada, where winters can get as cold as 10F, and have never warmed up the engine before driving away. There is no need in any new car probably built since the 2000s.

You can read more about it in this article: https://www.popularmechanics.com/car...-harms-engine/
