2019 Kia Niro EV Can Travel 280-Miles Per Charge

Ahead of its debut at the Paris Auto Show, Kia has revealed the full-electric version of their Niro compact crossover SUV in production guise. What’s more, the Korean automaker has released the Niro EV’s battery specs.

First appearing in concept form at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, the new all-electric Niro looks very similar to its hybrid and plug-in hybrid siblings. A few tweaks were made to the front facia with the addition of an enclosed upper grille, unique air intake vents and lower grille. Aside from that, the EV model looks pretty much exactly like the normal hybrid variants.

Some, like Viknesh Vijayenthiran from Motor Authority may not be a fan of the EV’s exterior design, but its performance may be enough to win over nay-sayers. Offered with two battery choices, those in the United States may only see the 64-kwh battery powered version. Which is fine considering the 280 miles of range it delivers compared to the 39.2-kwh unit’s 236 miles of range on the WLTP cycle.

These are optimistic numbers, but you can expect to see a slight drop when both models are measured by the EPA. Perhaps the 64-kwh battery will have a final figure of about 240 miles, similar to the concept shown at CES with the same battery size.

Set to debut this October, the 2019 Kia Niro EV should appear on showroom floors early next year.
