The new Kia Niro will come with a choice of hybrid drive, Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), and Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV).
“Kia continues to move towards a more sustainable future and invites everyone to join the movement towards a new era of mobility,” said Ho Sung Song, President and Chief Executive of Kia.
At its launch, Kia has not provided complete specification information of the electric or hybrid Kia Niro.
But if you look at the design, the facelifted version of the Hyundai Kona Electric can be inferior to the exterior appearance of the latest Kia Niro.
Starting from the front, Kia has redesigned the face of the latest Niro, inspired by the Kia HabaNiro concept car that debuted in 2019.
It is equipped with a Tiger Nose grille which is thinner and elongates to form a smile. The headlights are also down a bit and are pinned with angular DRLs.
The electric version has a slightly larger Tiger Nose and is equipped with a charging port door.
Interestingly, the body of the Kia Niro has a two-tone appearance with the addition of color on the C pillar instead of the roof. The HabaNiro-inspired design is accentuated by the taillights that form a boomerang.
Entering, the Kia Niro presents the latest interior design that carries the same design language as the Kia EV6.
Because Niro emphasizes sustainability, Kia uses environmentally friendly materials such as Bio PU, recycled paper, and Tencel made from eucalyptus leaves.
