In addition to the 2020 Soul, Kia introduced an EV version of the new model as well as the 2019 Kia Niro EV. We’re not yet sure if we’ll get these two EV models here in West Virginia, but we wanted to cover the incredible vehicle anyways just to show you everything that Kia is capable of, as well as what’s on the horizon. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that the all-electric versions of the 2019 Kia Niro and 2020 Kia Soul will make their way here to Mount Hope and Hometown Kia specifically, but until then you can at least see just how incredible Kia’s new EV is.

Electric Powertrain

The powertrain of an electric vehicle encompasses much more than just an engine, like a regular gas-powered vehicle. In the 2019 Kia Niro EV, power is generated by an electric motor that generates 201 horsepower alongside 291 pound-feet of torque as well as a 64-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. With a Combined Charging System DC fast-charge time of 100 miles in 30 minutes, or 80% battery capacity in 75, even long road trips are possible in the Niro EV, which is expected to have a 239-mile all-electric range, as estimated by the EPA. A full charge can still be reached with an ordinary 240v outlet in roughly 9.5 hours.

Other Specs & Features

The electric powertrain may be the most exciting aspect of the 2019 Kia Niro EV, but it’s not the only thing the vehicle has to offer. It’s still a regular vehicle with plenty of features, technologies and more packed inside and out. Features like the Kia Drive Wise Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems or the 7” display audio screen.
