A bold way to go green

A bold way to go green

The Kia Niro Hybrid is made for all those who want to do their bit for the environment without compromising on power or great looks. The combination of combustion engine and electric motor makes for a fun driving experience whilst keeping emissions to a minimum. And it does it all in impeccable style: you’ll notice the sleek front and rear bumper design, complete with the new double arrow-shaped LED daytime running lights, dynamic grille design and distinctive LED rear lights. There’s even a choice of new alloy wheels adding to the Hybrid’s powerful stance.

For the best of both worlds

If you like the best of both worlds, a place where performance and green credentials coexist in perfect harmony, then the Plug-in Hybrid is a great bet. Not only does it impress with a powerful exterior, it allows you to drive up to 65 km* without recharging, making it perfect for most daily commutes. Just like the Hybrid, this Kia crossover looks more purposeful than ever: it features a closed diamond-patterned grille and arrow-shaped LED daytime running lights and a new rear bumper design with LED taillights.* Within city-driving conditions or 49 km on a combined WLTP cycle.

A simpler way to travel, Through a complex world

As automobiles become more technologically complex, it’s more and more challenging to keep the experience of driving simple. Kia’s smart technology helps make the driver’s life easier. Accordingly, the Niro cockpit is designed to function as an intelligent human-machine interface. It presents important information, while at the same time removing clutter and distraction everywhere you look.

Eco-friendly driving
powered by two hearts
The Niro employs a parallel hybrid system that switches between petrol and electric power, or uses a combination of both, and charges the battery whenever it can. Unlike conventional hybrids, the parallel system keeps energy loss to a minimum as the full output of both engine and electric motor is transferred through the transmission in a parallel system. Combined CO₂ emissions are inspiringly low at 99.8 g/km.** Within city-driving conditions or 49 km on a combined WLTP cycle.
Lithium-ion polymer battery
Durable and lightweight, the 1.56 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery efficiently controls electrical energy and cools more effectively. Safely positioned below the rear seats, the battery comes with a 7-year warranty.
Regenerative braking system
Kinetic energy produced when decelerating or coming to a stop is captured and turned into electricity. This in turn is used to help recharge the battery.
Kappa 1.6 GDi engine
This 1.6 GDi engine generates a maximum output of 105 PS at 5,700 rpm and a peak torque of 15.0 kg·m at 4,000rpm – the perfect match for the Niro’s hybrid system. All told, the system offers a combined maximum output of 141 PS.
Permanent magnet electric motor
Providing up to 43.5 PS on its own, the electric motor also assists the petrol engine in hybrid mode, and recharges the battery during deceleration.
Smooth 6-speed DCT
A 6-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) transfers engine/motor power efficiently, and delivers dynamic drivability with fast shift response and direct feeling.
Low rolling resistance tires
To travel the most distance for every liter of fuel, the tires are designed for low rolling resistance, so they conserve more energy with every revolution.
Underbody aerodynamics
Out of view, the drivetrain, chassis, exhaust and exposed body elements are designed to create the least possible drag as the Niro moves forward.

Committed to the environment. Inspired by nature.
Plug-in Hybrid
The advanced Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid brings sophisticated, nature-inspired design to eco-friendly driving. Thanks to the bold exterior, it’s as refreshing to look at as it is to drive, giving you a range of an astonishing 65 km within city-driving conditions or 49 km on a combined WLTP cycle.
Charging port
Charging portEnjoy convenient charging via a regular 220 V household socket or public charging station. The Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid is able to recharge the battery at a public charging station (240 V, 16 A): up to 100% in approximately 2 hours 15 minutes.
In-cable control box
In-cable control boxThe Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid is equipped, as standard, with an in-cable control box. The color display on the cable indicates the battery charging status, so you can easily monitor the progress.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Tire Pressure Monitoring
System (TPMS)
TPMS keeps track of the pressure inside each of the tires. It tells you which tire is reporting under-inflation by displaying its pressure value on the cluster screen.
