It’s time for the all-new Kia e-Niro small electric SUV to be reviewed by the Fully Charged’s presenter Jonny Smith.
Kia Motors previously said that the WLTP combined cycle range for the e-Niro was 485 kilometers (301 miles) for the long-range 64 kWh battery pack, and 312 kilometers (193 miles) for the standard (39.2 kWh) battery pack.
Having now re-calculated the car according to the updated methodology, the e-Niro’s new WLTP combined cycle range is 455 kilometers (282 miles) for the long-range model, and 289 kilometers (179 miles) for the standard model.
Already in production at Kia’s Hwasung manufacturing facility in Korea, the all-electric Kia e-Niro is on sale in the UK from 1 April 2019 priced at £32,995 after deduction of the £3,500 plug-in car grant. Premium paint is available as an optional extra at an additional £565.
In keeping with every Kia, the e-Niro comes with a unique-in-the-UK seven-year or 100,000-mile warranty, subject to certain wear and tear conditions. The warranty additionally covers the battery pack and electric motor for extra peace of mind. It is fully transferable should the car be sold before the time or mileage limits have been reached.
