Kia Niro EV: Design

The Niro EV is a highly versatile model as it combines an eye-catching appearance with excellent practicality. The design incorporates the utility and appeal of a compact SUV, in an all-new sleek, aerodynamic body with the subtly sculptured surfaces that perfectly suits the slick innovation of this new model.

Niro EV differentiates itself from the existing Niro Hybrid and Niro Plug-in Hybrid with a series of exclusive design features. Its futuristically styled ‘tiger-nose’ grille features an integrated charging port, bearing a de-bossed Niro logo.

Redesigned air intakes and new arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights combine with light blue trim highlights to make it stand out further. The Niro EV rides on new five-spoke 17-inch aluminium alloy wheels with a diamond-cut two-tone finish, housing Kia’s regenerative braking system. At the back, reshaped rear bumpers feature similar light blue highlights to those found at the front of the car, while new LED rear lights give the Niro EV its own light signature.

Breaking New Ground in Design

The Niro EV is powered by a next-generation electric-vehicle powertrain system. Equipped with a high-capacity 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, the Niro EV will be able to drive over 450 km on a single charge with zero emissions – an impressive feat for electric models. It’s safe to say the Niro EV will exquisitely demonstrate the considerable steps Kia has made in delivering comfortable, fun-to-drive vehicles that lead the way in zero emissions motoring.

New Technology Included

The Niro EV has plenty of model specific technology cleverly included within the interior design. The dashboard that features a new light blue trim, reflecting the exterior, focuses at the centre console which has been simplifies to include Kia’s first ‘dial’-style shift knob.

The interior also features a new mood lighting system that illuminates both the centre console and the shifter. Occupants can choose from six colours – white, grey, bronze, red, green, and blue to personalise their interior to perfection.

The Niro’s 7.0-inch touchscreen HMI (Human-Machine Interface) has stayed put but now includes a new infotainment system that enables owners to locate nearby charging points and monitor the level of charge and range remaining from the battery pack.

A lamp is integrated into the top of the dashboard, with a light displaying whether the battery pack is recharging or fully charged when plugged in – quickly enabling owners to know when it’s fully-charged.

There are numerous active safety systems available in the Niro EV including; Forward Collision Warning with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Intelligent Stop & Go, and Lane Following Assist.

The Lane Following Assist system in place is a ‘Level Two’ autonomous driving technology which tracks vehicles in front of the car in traffic, and detects road markings to keep the Niro EV in its lane on the motorway. The system also controls acceleration, braking and steering depending on the convoy of vehicles in front, using external sensors to maintain a safe distance.
