2020 Kia Niro EV Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2020 Kia Niro EV is a absolutely electrical vehicle that delivers a selection of additional than two hundred miles for each charge in a useful deal that’s in any other case nearly identical to that of the Kia Niro hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid. 

Overall, we fee the 2020 Niro at six.six out of ten. (Go through additional about how we fee cars.)

Like individuals other Niro types, the Niro EV’s styling is not daring or rugged or sporty. There are some token hints of all-climate capability in the rubberized wheel-properly trim and upright grille, but past the winks and the nods this is a front-wheel-travel car that has a tall, roomy entire body and it doesn’t sit significantly increased off the ground than a sedan. 

Evaluation proceeds beneath

For 2020, the Niro EV will get much larger eight.-inch and ten.three-inch infotainment screens, changing the preceding 7.- and eight.-inch types, respectively. It also will get a very little additional metallic trim all over the headlights and new rear LED mix lights. 

The relaxation of the crucial specs for the Niro EV have over, and that’s not a undesirable issue. The one electrical motor will make 201 horsepower and 291 pound-toes of torque and can accelerate the Niro EV to 60 mph in all over seven seconds and it feels perky all the way to highway speeds. Journey and handling feels quite distinct than the Niro hybrid as the EV weighs about seven-hundred kilos additional. It’s self-assured on the highway but not as nimble on the backroads. 

Most of the Niro hybrid’s inside versatility and room carries over to the Niro EV. The rear seats still flip forward, and there’s adequate room for two adults in the back again seat. The front seats are not so road-journey worthy, nevertheless. 

The Niro EV is presented in EX and EX High quality types, with a much larger display screen, created-in navigation, Harman Kardon quality audio, and a heated steering wheel amid the upgrades. 

A $7,five hundred federal EV tax credit rating applies to qualifying prospective buyers of the Niro EV, as properly as numerous neighborhood and condition incentives. Kia only sells the EV in California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Texas, and Washington.
