The centre console also houses intuitive instruments and you can even adjust it to your mood with a selection of six colours for ambient lighting. Space is a luxury that everyone can enjoy in the Kia e-Niro, with a raised seating position for the driver and comfortable leg and head spaces available to all four passengers. You can fill the boot with 451 litres of cargo (more than most electric cars) and with the rear seats folding flat thanks to a 60:40 split, this makes room for a total 1,405 litres!
A true crossover, the e-Niro comes with many individual touches, starting with the aerodynamic, closed front grille featuring a striking diamond pattern and an integrated charging socket. The striking arrow-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights, as well as the new dedicated design of the bumpers and the 17" alloy wheels, also feature a unique e-Niro design.
Using the touchscreen, you can customise your experience with four different driving modes: ‘Eco +’ to keep your energy consumption to a minimum, ‘Eco’ which prioritises autonomy over performance, ‘Comfort’ to facilitate daily driving and ‘Sport’ which prioritizes performance to enjoy a dynamic driving experience. ‘First Edition’ models also benefit from a Smart Key & Button Start, USB and AUX ports and an Electric Parking Brake, just to name a few.
The Kia e-Niro comes with a choice of batteries to suit individual preferences. The 64kWh battery is designed for longer distance journeys of up to 282 miles and can be recharged from 0% to 80% in 1 hour 15 minutes with a 50kW Rapid Charger. Combined with the long-range battery, the 150 kW motor (201bhp) accelerates from 0-60mph in 7.5 seconds. It allows for a dynamic start that matches the sharp design of the stunning Kia e-Niro. The fast recharge socket allows you to recharge the battery at home or in one of the increasingly numerous public charging stations throughout Europe that have a combined charging system (CCS). You can check the battery charge on the dashboard, even from outside the vehicle. What's more, for a step without obstacles to electrical technology, you can even program the download remotely.
With functions such as Lane Following Assist as standard, driving in traffic jams just got easier and safer. LFA is an autonomous driving system that adjusts acceleration, braking and also steering to the vehicle in front. Smart Cruise Control uses the car's radar to regulate both the speed and the distance to the car in front. If the vehicle ahead speeds up, your Kia e-Niro accelerates to the set speed. If it slows down, your car slows, maintaining the safety distance. In addition, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian/Cyclist Protection gives you warning signals and automatically brakes when it detects any risk of collision and you don’t react.
A radar and a camera detect potential dangers in the car's path, including pedestrians, cyclists and cars. Smart Regenerative Braking helps to save energy, recharge the battery and lets you enjoy effortless one-pedal driving. You can set four levels of regenerative braking and use the kinetic energy to recharge your battery.
