Kia Teases All-New Sportage CUV

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.
