Kia Niro 2022 with hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric drive in first test

Nobody really loved it: as of 2016, the previous Kia Niro was one of those cars that are not bought to be pampered, but to be used. Practical family type, next to Ceed and recently refurbished Sportage, mainstay of local Kia sales. But not the eye-catching one that made our hearts melt. The new Niro wants to change that from autumn by introducing more style.

According to the data, the Hyundai subsidiary only has electric drives. As before with the Niro hybrid (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and electric drive, which recently accounted for half of sales in Europe and is called the Niro EV. “In terms of sales, we have the highest percentage of electric vehicles in Europe, behind Tesla and in front of VW,” emphasizes Kia Europe marketing director David Hilbert (44).
