There has been a boom in the number of electric cars on the market, but the Kia e-Niro is still a stand-out product thanks to its long range and affordable price.
Availability of the popular model is due to increase this year, meaning waiting lists should shrink and fleet customers will be able to get their hands on one should they wish.
With a range of 282 miles (WLTP) from its 64kWh battery, the e-Niro should help to stem range anxiety among drivers while its output of 204PS delivers impressive performance when required.
The car comes well equipped, with the latest driver assistance systems, leather upholstery and keyless entry.
Its SUV-like body shape and low ride height enhance practicality and efficiency.
Passenger and luggage space is generous, while the interior layout is both functional and robust.
A seven-year warranty provides both peace-of-mind in-contract and assures the car returns a strong residual value.
