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
The trimSee full equipment
This top-spec trim level adds a tilt and slide sunroof, LED headlights, a memory function for the driver’s seat and door mirrors, ventilated front seats, heated outer rear seats, ambient lighting, a punchy JBL stereo and front parking sensors. You also get an 11kW three-phase charger that knocks a couple of hours off the AC charging time, assuming you can find a suitably powerful power supply. Unless you’ll honestly benefit from the faster recharge time, we’d stick to 3 trim.

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
