It might seem a little late in 2021 to introduce a 2021 model year vehicle but, as they say, better late than never. And never would simply not work as the market is getting hungrier for EVs and Kia’s got an interesting product in the Niro.
For the most part, the 2021 Kia Niro EV is a carryover from 2020. That is to say that it retains the services of the front-mounted 201-horsepower electric motor at the 64kWh battery that feeds it. On a full charge, the Niro EV can cover up to 239 miles, a range that remains extremely competitive.
The main changes brought forth for the 2021 model year are as follows:
Standard Rear Occupant Alert (door-logic based)
Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (EX)
Remote Start functionality allows for cabin preheating or cooling
Niro EV expands the available DriveWise Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)2. including Leading Vehicle Departure Alert, Highway Driving Assist, and Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control.
The base EX is priced from $39,090 while the EX Premium starts at $44,650 in the US.
