Kia Reveals Niro EV At Busan Motor Show

After introducing the concept model earlier this year at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, Kia Motors revealed the all-new Niro EV at the Busan International Motor Show today in Korea. First appearing in hybrid form and then as a plug-in hybrid, the full-electric compact crossover is finally ready to join its siblings.

Powering the Niro EV is a single electric motor that’s good for 201 horsepower and 291 lb-ft of torque, exceeding the hybrid model’s combined output of 139 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough for the Niro EV to accelerate from 0-62 mph in around 7.8 seconds. While that may not impress some, CarScoops says it’s still an improvement from the plug-in hybrid’s 10.5 seconds.

Motors aside, the Niro EV is offered with two lithium-polymer battery options. The standard 39.2-kWh battery pack can store enough power to give you 149 miles of range on a single charge. Then there’s the higher-capacity 64-kWh unit, providing a driving range in excess of 236 miles per charge, though these figures will likely see a slight reduction when measured by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Plugged into a 100 kW fast charger, it takes only 54 minutes to reach 80% capacity with the bigger battery pack. The charge time with a normal home plug remains to be seen.

While customers can expect to see the Niro EV hit showroom floors in the second half of this year, Kia has yet to reveal a global sale date.
