Kia announces new high-spec version of its all-electric e-Niro

The new ‘4’ grade replaces the First Edition model.

Kia has announced that its updated e-Niro EV will be offered in a new ‘4’ trim level.

This replaces the First Edition, which has been the sole grade available since launch.

Standard equipment is very impressive, and has been bolstered with the introduction of LED headlights, a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and new connected services, which allow for services such as remote access and pre-heating.

Other standard kit includes leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry and adaptive cruise control, to name but a few features.

The e-Niro’s 64kWh battery remains the same as before – allowing for a seriously impressive 282-mile electric ranges, which can be achieved in real-world driving. The powerful electric motor also produces 201bhp – allowing for a 0-60mph time of 7.5 seconds.

The announcement of the new trim level follows Kia’s earlier pledge that the updated model will be more readily available than the last, with owners having to endure huge waiting lists amid limited supply to UK customers.

The updated model is on sale now, with prices starting from £34,495 once the government’s £3,500 electric car grant has been deducted. First deliveries on orders placed now aren’t expected until the middle of 2020 when waiting lists should have been reduced.
