The Kia e-Niro pulls off a trick that many electric cars have thus far failed to do, and that’s to be a fantastic electric car – that is, one with a long range – as well as a good car in other respects, offering decent practicality, good performance, a comfortable ride and plenty of equipment. And the e-Niro does all of that for a sensible, albeit not exactly cheap, price.get the best price
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.
This is the longest-range battery available, and, powering up its electric motor to 201bhp, it makes the e-Niro feel rather nippy. Our press car completed a 0-60mph run in just 6.9sec – that's hot hatch levels of performance. And there’s no waiting for the revs to rise before maximum performance is delivered like there is in a petrol car; simply tread on the accelerator pedal and the e-Niro immediately goes. Plus, it’ll cover more than 250 miles in real-world driving conditions; that’s more than a Tesla Model 3
Great value and has a long range between charges.
