KIA Niro to Get Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid, and Battery-Electric Powertrains

Kia’s second-generation Niro goes on sale this fall redesigned with hybrid, plug-in hybrid or battery-electric powertrain, with larger price tags on its hybrid and PHEV variants, more trim options, eco-friendly appointments and standard safety tech.

Previously announced performance changes on the line include a 33-mile all-electric range on the 2023 Niro PHEV and a larger 11.1 kWh battery (up from 8.9 kWh); a 253-mile range on the Niro EV, a gain of 14 miles; and a slight fuel economy improvement to 53 mpg on the hybrid (opting for the Touring package drops mpg to 49).
