Kia has announced pricing for the all-new second generation 2023 Niro Plug-in Hybrid, starting at $33,740.
With increased dimensions all around, the 2023 Niro Plug-in Hybrid aims to offer more comfort with a roomier cabin, but despite its larger size, the PHEV has a 25-percent greater all-electric range of 33 miles than its predecessor and is rated at 108 MPGe.
Some of Kia’s latest convenience technology features such as available dual panoramic displays and a transferable digital key add to the Niro PHEV’s appeal, as well as the bold design inspired by the “Opposites United” philosophy. For an even more standout design, consumers can opt for the 18-inch wheels and two-tone Aero C-Pillar color panel option on the SX Touring trim, while the EX trim is available with a Cold Weather Package that adds a supplemental cabin heater for quicker warmup, heated rear seats and heated steering wheel.
Niro Plug-in comes standard with 16 advanced driver assistance features including Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance-Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Junction Turning, and Lane Following Assist.
Powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine coupled with a powerful 62 kW electric motor, the Niro Plug-in Hybrid puts out a combined 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed dual clutch transmission. When connected to a Level 2 charger, the Niro PHEV can refill its 11.1-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery in under three hours.
The 2023 Niro Plug-in Hybrid is arriving in dealers now and will be available in all 50 states.
