Kia e-Niro to start at £32,995 28 | 01 | 2019

    KIA’S ALL-NEW, all- electric e-Niro will go on-sale from Scottish dealerships in April priced from £32,995 after the government’s £3,500 plug-in car grant has been applied. The Kia EV has an official range of 282 miles. (Related: Kia Ceed GT-Line and GT prices)

    Power comes from a 64kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which drives a 201bhp electric motor and delivers a 0-62mph sprint time of 7.5secs. It will continue to reach a max of 124mph. Recharging to 80% capacity takes 54 minutes, and regenerative brakes also tops up the e-Niro’s battery when decelerating. (Related: Refreshed Kia Sportage range starts at £20,305)


    The e-Niro — recently named What Car? Car of the Year — is well equipped as standard, with rear parking sensors and camera, satellite navigation with European mapping, automatic headlights, climate control, rear privacy glass, plus a seven-inch digital gauge cluster all included.


    In addition, there’s Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 320-watt JBL sound system with a subwoofer, a heated steering wheel, as well as an electrically adjustable and heated leather seats. Externally, the e-Niro benefits from LED daytime running lights, roof rails and 17-inch alloys.


    Kia has also upped the safety stakes, with “smart” adaptive cruise control — capable of accelerating the e-Niro to motorway speeds from a standstill — forward collision avoidance, lane-keeping assist, and hill-start assist all available.

    And, in keeping with Kia’s longstanding tradition, the e-Niro will come with the Korean carmaker’s comprehensive seven-year or 100,000 mile warranty covering the electric motor and battery pack.
