2018 Kia Niro all-electric model

Kia has proven that it can make great crossover SUV models and Kia Sportage and Sorrento definitely deserves attention. However, the second side of the story, the greener one, is the Kia Niro, the model dedicated to environment and efficiency friendly technologies. Kia launched this model for the 2017 model year with the hybrid powertrain only and for the 2018 model year the story continues with the plug-in hybrid version.

The Niro plug-in hybrid debuted at the Geneva Auto Show with the larger battery than the standard Niro and promised range of around 25 miles while the Euro-spec version is listed with the all-electric range of about 34 miles. However, the latest reports promising even broader lineup of the Niro models. Like Niro’s platform and powertrain donor the Hyundai Ioniq hatchback, this model should also add an EV version, the 2018 Kia Niro all-electric model.

2018 Kia Niro all-electric: Powertrain

While Hyundai promised the Ioniq hatch in hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric version from the beginning, Kia hasn’t said that she has similar plans. However, information leaked from the company that an electric Niro might follow the release of the plug-in hybrid version. But information about this model ends there.

However, if Kia launches the 2018 Kia Niro all-electric model, it will likely share its powertrain with the Ioniq electric model. The combination of the 118 hp and 215 lb-ft  (88kW) electric motor and a 28kWh lithium- ion battery provides 124 miles of the combined range for the Ioniq electric model. If the Niro EV adopts the same setup and battery capacity, considering its heavier structure, the first estimations suggesting the range of around 110 maybe 115 miles.

2018 Kia Niro all-electric: Design

As for the styling of the 2018 Kia Niro all-electric, Kia hasn’t said a word either. However, like it is the case with the new plug-in and standard hybrid version, Kia will likely make same styling tweaks to distinguish the Niro EV. In that context, we should expect unique grille accents and headlights. The front and rear bumpers should also highlight unique accents and specific wheels should distinguish models further.

The interior should also offer unique trim and upholstery options like the new plug-in version. The tech and safety features will mimic the plug-in version but in order to save energy as much as possible some luxuries might be missing.

2018 Kia Niro all-electric: Possible Arrival, Price

The Kia Niro plug-in hybrid will arrive by the end of this year. The 2018 Kia Niro all-electric should come sometime in 2018. The price is also the open question and hard to predict.
