For the moment, it’s only available in Korea however its introduction is right on the heels of the Hyundai Kona EV. What’s most impressive about these two vehicles is not only how popular they are, especially the Kona, but how quickly they’ve become a reference in the increasingly sought after small crossover segment.
While Canadian specs for the Niro EV are not official, we do know that the Kona will be available with up to 400 km of range. In both vehicle’s cases, a 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack allows for this driving range. A lower priced and powered option will provide buyers with an optional 39.2 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, with a range of up to 246 kilometres (153 miles).
Plugged into a fast charger, 54 minutes are all that will be needed to recharge the Niro EV’s battery to 80%. Features are numerous, from safety to connectivity as well as comfort. No word yet if it will come to Canada but we assume that the increase demand for electric vehicles will nudge it our way in the not too distant future.
