South Korean automaker Kia is finally launching the Niro EV, an electric crossover that has been teased in various concept forms, but with a final version that meets all the hype that it attracted.
This particular electric crossover is set to offer a considerable range in excess of 450 km per charge, but what makes this even more impressive is the fact that the range doesn't come with the included compromise of a larger powertrain and reduced interior space. The powertrain itself comprises a 64-kilowatt-hour battery setup, although the vehicle still comes with all the interior space and amenities associated with other cars in Kia's Niro line.
Set to be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show before being launched in the South Korean market later this year, the Kia Niro EV electric crossover is poised to be a huge hit in the Asian market, although its combination of compactness, comfort and eco-friendly driving could make it appeal to other markets as well.
