What Car? says...
The Kia e-Niro hasn’t been around for that long but already it has one heck of a reputation. Why? Well, when it was launched it gave the electric car market a right old shake up, offering a Tesla-style long range for a far more affordable price.
Indeed, it was so impressive that it went on to become the first ever electric car to win our overall What Car? Car of the Year award – the biggest accolade we hand out – and buyers have been joining the queue to bag one ever since.
Still, this is the fastest moving market in motoring. New electric models are appearing all the time, although not always ones that can top the Kia e-Niro’s official range of up to 282 miles between charges.
What are its competitors? That depends on whether you're set on an electric SUV in particular or just an electric car in general. Rival SUVs include in-house competition from the Hyundai Kona Electric (Hyundai owns Kia, by the way) and Kia Soul EV, as well as the Citroën e-C4, MG ZS EV and Peugeot e-2008. Then there are the electric hatchback rivals, some of which have been around for a while now, like the Nissan Leaf and Renault Zoe, plus fresher entrants, including the Peugeot e-208 and Volkswagen ID.3.
So how does the e-Niro compare? Should it be your next car and perhaps your first ever electric car? In this review you'll find all the information you could possibly need just by clicking through the pages.
