Niro as an electric vehicle has always been highly-anticipated and people had many hopes for it become one of the exemplary models that will make a path for other EV cars to follow.
As learnt from the Temecula Kia dealer, the strongest selling point that Kia has created for the Niro EV model is installing a power boosting electric motor that can create a 201 of horsepower with 291 lb-ft. of torque, which is way advanced than most of the EV models as of now. The credit goes much to the state-of-the-art liquid cooled battery, that can easily make the Niro run a 240-mile of distance on a single charge.
The 2019 edition of Kia Niro EV starts building up its positive impressions first by the look and appearance that can be recognized a s a Kia product from quite a distance. The design speaks of intelligent planning. The front fascia is smoothened to enhance the aerodynamic efficiency and that is confirmed through the distinctive tiger-nose at the front. The available 17-inch alloy wheels helped in raising the bar with a thin band of LED headlights made the lighting dignified from every angle.
Range, Mileage and Performance
To make it 240 miles per charge, Kia had to back up the new Niro EV with as powerful a battery as a 64-kWh lithium-ion polymer one can even manage to give 301 miles when charged fully. For the performance sector, the new 2019 Kia Niro EV claims to pick up the speed of 60 mph within merely 8 seconds. The best part of this EV vehicle is that it moves quicker than many of its rivals even when move it around the town, and that is certainly because of the intuitive torque response of the electric motor.
To maximize its real-world range, Kia has incorporated in its Niro EV, a Coasting Guide Control system (CGC) that acts as a driving coach, so that the driver can choose the best driving acts to optimize the performance level. The twin “shift paddles” accompanying the steering wheel provides the driver with three distinctive levels of braking power, so that it sustains more.
The entire framing of the 2019 Kia Niro EV has been set up on the intermingling concept of natural human-machine interface supported by an abundance of technologies installed for everything, be it for the in-cabin creature comforts, safety measures or driver aids like forward collision mitigation, a driver attention monitor, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist. As per the Temecula Kia experts, Kia has promised to introduce in near future a low-level automated driving system to provide the driver more relief from few responsibilities that can still affect the safety aspects especially in tight traffic situations.
