The Kia e-Niro pulls off a trick that many newer electric cars have failed to do: being a fantastic electric car – one with a long range – as well as a good car full stop. It offers good practicality, excellent performance, a comfortable ride, tidy handling and plenty of equipment. And the e-Niro does all of that for a fairly sensible price if you go for our mid-spec trim recommendation. The cheaper 39kWh version isn't quite so impressive, though.get the best price
The trimSee full equipment
Mid-level 3 is our recommended trim and adds full leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, 8-way electrically adjustable (including lumbar adjustment) heated front seats, wireless phone charging, front parking sensors, and a larger 10.25in infotainment screen with in-built sat-nav and online features. Crucially, on the e-Niro, it also brings the larger 64kWh battery, to give a real world range of over 250 miles.
The engineSee full engine specs
This is the biggest battery available and officially does 282 miles on a full charge, and in our Real Range testing managed an excellent 253 miles - better than a Tesla Model 3. The battery powers an electric motor with 201bhp, making the e-Niro feel rather nippy. In our trials it did 0-60mph run in just 6.5sec – that's hot hatch levels of performance.
