Combining unique crossover style and practicality with low hybrid emissions, the Niro Plug-In Hybrid excels in one thing above all: making driving more energy-efficient and exciting.
With potential fuel economy of well over 200mpg and CO2 emissions of just 29g/km, the Kia Niro plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is easily the Korean company's most efficient car to feature a combustion engine ever. The Niro PHEV will be a cornerstone of Kia's drive to reduce the average CO2 emissions of its range by 25 per cent, based on 2014 figures, by 2020. It is the first plug-in hybrid compact crossover to go on sale in the UK.
The Niro PHEV features the same 1.6-litre direct-injection petrol engine as the Niro parallel hybrid launched in 2016, but in this case the combustion engine is paired with a more powerful 44.5kW (60bhp) electric motor supported by a larger 8.9kWh battery pack to extend the car's range on electric power alone. The Niro PHEV is capable of travelling up to 36 miles on the energy stored in its batteries, which means many owners will be able to complete their daily commute without using a drop of petrol or producing any tailpipe emissions.
