Kia Motors has revealed its all-new Niro EV at the 2018 Busan International Motor Show in Korea. With a range of 450 kilometres, the Niro EV combines driving enjoyment with eye-catching design, and crossover utility with a zero-emissions powertrain.
In addition to the Niro EV, Kia Motors also unveiled two other vehicles at the Busan International Motor Show. The Kia SP Concept, first unveiled at the 2018 AutoExpo in India hints at Kia’s future SUV design vision. The Kia Stinger GT Wide Body makes its Korean debut, following its introduction at the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas in the US.
Emilio Herrera, Chief Operating Officer of Kia Motors Europe, commented: “The Soul EV, Kia’s first globally-sold electric vehicle has proven to be popular among European buyers, with growing interest in zero-emissions vehicles. The Niro’s new all-electric powertrain rounds off a trio of low-emissions powertrains available to European buyers, alongside the current hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. A combination of cool crossover design and advanced powertrains led to more than 28,000 Niro sales across Europe in 2017, making it one of our best-selling models. The Niro EV further demonstrates the progress Kia has made in delivering comfortable, practical and fun-to-drive vehicles that lead the way in zero-emissions driving.”
Following the Busan Motor Show, the Niro EV will go on sale in Korea during the second half of 2018, and will be introduced to other markets including Europe in due course.
