Rewriting The Rulebook On Electric Driving
Energy is stored in a large battery, which drives a powerful electric motor. To charge it, simply plug it into a home chargepoint, or a public charger when you’re out and about, and the car will take care of the rest. Plug it in at home, and you wake up every morning with a ‘full tank’*. In the case of the e-Niro, that’s a potential 282-mile range. The car then drives on battery power alone, there is no need to add petrol or diesel. It can even add charge to the battery while you are driving by recovering energy that would normally be lost, for example, through kinetic energy when braking.
Handling is impressive on the All-New Kia Niro because the batteries are in the floor, meaning it has a low centre of gravity, which helps minimise body roll while making the car feel planted, providing a fun, dynamic drive. The All-New e-Niro even has a sport mode as well as an efficient eco mode.
Cheap To Run and Zero Emissions
Electric cars are incredibly quiet inside, making for a relaxing atmosphere. Driving is easy, too, because electric motors produce maximum torque at all revs, so acceleration is instant. There are no exhaust emissions from the tailpipe either as the New Kia e-Niro doesn’t even have a tailpipe. This is particularly helpful for improving air quality in urban areas.
