The all-electric version of the Kia Niro is now on sale in the U.S. It took longer than Kia initially said it would, but some deliveries have already taken place.
The base model of the e-Niro is the EX trim, with an MSRP of $39,495 with a destination charge. Compared to the Hyundai Kona, the e-Niro is $1500 more expensive.
In the past, Kia has limited the sale of its electric vehicles to specific parts of the country. The e-Niro is supposed to be available nationwide, but will likely be in limited quantities. There are also reports of dealerships on the West Coast asking for thousands of dollars over MSRP.
I bought one and paid 1,100.00 to ship from California to Orlando Florida. Afternoon Florida taxes I had about 46,000 in it, and sold it to a couple from Costa Rica for 40,000 with 3,000 miles. Enroute there now.
Lovely car. I sorta regret selling it.
I’m looking for a Chev spark. Already had one plus Leaf and Model 3.
I am recently bought a Kia NIRO EV. I am looking for guidance on driving on mountainous roads. Are there any suggestions on following topics related to Niro Electric driving:
Driving up hill – modes to be used
Driving downhill without relying much on brakes, which mode is recommended?
Android auto – does it show on route charging stations ? How?
