Niro EV vs. Kona EV: Range & Specs

When deciding between the Hyundai Kona electric or Kia Niro EV, you’ll want to take their respective performance capabilities into account. Both models’ electric motors produce 201 hp, so if you’re making a switch from a gas-powered vehicle, you don’t have to worry about sacrificing power. The Kia Niro EV’s 64-kWh battery delivers an EPA-estimated electric range of 239 miles.

Federal Way drivers who struggle with range anxiety will be pleased to know that more than 99% of trips are less than 100 miles, and most EVs can be charged in just a few hours with a home charging system. Although, if you’re worried about access to charging stations in your area, check out the Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.

The 2022 Kia Niro EV boasts a fresh style update and offers a variety of new standard features such as a Harman/Kardon audio system, a 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment center, and navigation.
