Kia has unveiled a new all-electric version of the Niro with a 240 mile range.
The Niro EV was revealed in Korea – where it will go on sale later this year - and will make its European debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.
Its all-new powertrain is expected to feature in future electric Kia models. Performance data is yet to be confirmed.
A high-capacity 64kWh lithium-polymer battery pack provides a range of 240 miles with zero emissions, or up to 150 miles on an optional 39.2kWh battery system.
Designed at Kia’s design centres in California, USA and Namyang, Korea, the Niro EV has taken inspiration from the Niro EV Concept unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The Niro EV is set apart with an exclusive radiator grille, air intake and arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights.
