Kia Motors has revealed its new Niro EV at the 2018 Busan International Motor Show in Korea – a model it claims can travel up to 380 kilometres on a single charge.
In addition to the Niro EV, Kia Motors also unveiled two other vehicles at the Busan International Motor Show. The Kia SP Concept – first unveiled at the 2018 AutoExpo in India – makes its Korean debut, and hints at Kia’s future SUV design vision.The Kia Stinger GT Wide Body also makes its Korean debut, following its introduction at the 2017 SEMA show in Las Vegas in the USA.
Kia’s star of the Busan show, the Niro EV occupies a unique position in the market as an all-electric CUV (crossover utility vehicle). It is thought that buyers will also benefit from a range of EV-exclusive in-car technologies, new safety features, and stand-out exterior and interior design.
“The Niro EV will be Kia’s second globally-sold electric vehicle, following the immensely popular Soul EV,” President and CEO of Kia Motors Corporation, Han-woo Park said.
“It demonstrates the progress Kia has made in delivering comfortable, practical and fun-to-drive vehicles that lead the way in zero-emissions driving.”
Following the Busan Motor Show, the Niro EV will go on sale in Korea during the second half of 2018, and will be introduced to other markets in due course.
