Looking to add a hitch to my EV. I previously had the PHEV but just lost her to a rear end that damaged the battery. Installed the Curt hitch on that one, but when looking at U-Haul for the base Niro they list both the Curt and this Cequent as options. Etrailer has a similar hitch from Drawtite as well.



Since this is solely for my bike rack, would be happier with a smaller/lighter hitch, and since these only bolts into the sides of the frame rails, hoping installation would be easier. Anyone explore this route previously and know if it's doable or a no go?

You have to cut into your bumper cover to install that hitch...
On the base Niro yes, but I wasn't sure if that would be the same on the EV since there's no muffler/exhaust to cover with the rear fascia. Do you know for certain the EV needs to also be cut? If so then yeah that's a total deal breaker.
