OEM rubber mats?

When I got my EV (in April 2019) the all weather rubber mats given (from the Hybrid) don’t really fit, as the floor in the EV is different and also has the hooks to prevent the mats from shifting in a different spot. My dealer told me last week that they still don’t have the ability to get proper mats for the EV. Wondering what others are experiencing. I can’t believe this is taking so long.

Buy WeatherTech. They're soooo much better. Available for the Niro EV now.

It looks like the weatherall website only lists the Niro and Niro ev. Does anyone know if either of those fit the plug in?

I have these for my 2019 ex premium plug in. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They fit well and I love that they cover the carpet area in front of the back seats.

The PHEV has the hooks in the rear as well, so maybe a set made for it will fit the EV? I got the Maxliner set for mine and really like it:

Thanks Beth! I also played around with the weathertech website and once you select the hybrid then you can choose hybrid or phev.

Maxliners here and they are great super easy to clean.

No deep grooves which makes it hard to clean.

Appreciate the recommendations for 3rd party mats, but I was promised OEM mats with the purchase of my EV and would want to find out if any of you EV owners have them. If you recommend a 3rd party mat, make sure it is one made for the EV. Again, the floor of the EV is different (due to the battery) and while some sellers claim they fit all Niro models I know for sure they will NOT.

I own a 2019 Kia Niro EV and highly recommend Tuxmat, they are the best mats I have ever owned. I have had OEM, I have had Weathertech in more than one car and I can say that I will never buy Weathertech again (for several reasons), because Tuxmat are amazing and far less expensive than Weathertech. I will be creating a video review of them soon.
I don't have proper pictures yet, but this one should give you a very basic idea of what I am talking about.
