At the 5th International Electric Vehicle Expo in Jeju, Korea Kia has presented the all-electric version of the Niro crossover, first launched in 2016.
The Niro EV was designed at Kia’s design centers in California, USA and Namyang, Korea.
These include the closed “radiator grille”, a futuristic air intake and the arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights.
The Niro EV is equipped with a high-capacity 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, which allows to achieve a drive range of over 450 km on a single charge, or up to 240 km using an optional 39.2 kWh battery system.
The Niro EV will go on sale in Korea during the second half of 2018 and be later launched in other markets. It will make its European debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.
