kia niro plug in hybrid
With a 30-mile all-electric range and fuel consumption up to 201.8mpg combined, it’s easy to see why the Kia Niro plug-in hybrid is so popular. It also helps it’s as stylish as it is efficient, with a bold SUV stance and beautifully sculpted body. Even the interior’s a class act, with black leather upholstery, an 8” touchscreen infotainment system and thoughtful everyday features like heated seats and a heated steering wheel. Stick on the Smart Cruise Control system and let your Niro cruise for you, and when you need to park up, not to worry because there’s front and rear parking sensors. The Niro plug-in hybrid offers it all, and that really is the point. It’s electric, without compromise.
With generous curves, an athletic stance and distinctive LED DRL profile, the Niro plug-in hybrid has bags of style. It’s beautiful on the inside too with quality materials, leather seats and a slick 8” touchscreen with satellite navigation.
The Niro plug-in hybrid pairs a 1.6 petrol engine with an 8.9 kWh battery pack. The result is 139bhp for a powerful, smooth drive, with the powertrain switching between electric, petrol, and combination power depending on the conditions.
A large battery back under the boot floor means the Niro plug-in hybrid has a decent 324-litre boot, which is smaller than the standard hybrid, but space in the back for passengers is the same. There’re also ISOFIX points on both rear outermost seats.
Living with it
Around town you’ll use no petrol at all and even longer trips can be kept to electric power alone. The charge time at a 100Kw DC charge station is 0 to 80% in 54 minutes. As standard, all models feature wireless phone charging and Lane Keep Assist.
