I asked when I picked the car up but it was the same answer "It should but we don't know".
That's the answer from their inhouse EV specialist.

Then, contact Kia customer service directly. The dealers seem to have limited knowledge on EVs and charging details.

I was able to get a 220 volt Nema 10-30 splitter cable and a level 2 charger from Amazon this weekend. works great.
I ordered them Friday night and they arrived around noon on Saturday. Used it 4 times so far this weekend. works great.

This charger has only 26 rating on Amazon website.

After installation, EV L2 charger typically would become the largest current consumption equipment at your house. I suggest to do sufficient research on the chargers in the market, specifications, pros/cons, possible faults, status monitoring and guarantee coverage. It is not worth to possibly induce a severe damage to your car or house(s), because of saving a few bucks on the charger.

I have the PHEV which only charges at 16 amps. My dryer circuit is rated for 30 amps, so this is not a concern at all.

I did open the charger to inspect the quality and components on the circuit board inside the control box. Seems well designed, good quality of workmanship. the board is marked "Liteon" which is a well known electronics manufacturer.

Sorry to butt into this thread. I just picked up a 2021 Niro EV. We already have a Tesla wall charger that is set to 80 amp output. Will the internals of the Niro EV be able to deal with the 80 amps it gets offered? Does anyone have experience charging their Niro off of that with a Tesla to J1772 adapter?

Thanks for any insights you all can provide.
See my response to your other post.
