The 2022 Kia Niro EV is the all-electric version of the gasoline-powered Niro hybrid. There is also a plug-in hybrid Niro as well (both are reviewed separately).
A 64-kWh battery pack powers a front-mounted motor and provides an EPA-estimated range of 239 miles.
However, the Niro EV went 285 miles on a single charge in tests, which is one of the longest distances from a reasonably priced EV.
Last year’s Kia Niro EV came loaded with a long list of standard features, and thanks to updates for the 2022 model year, it comes with even more. Last year’s optional 10.25-inch center touchscreen is now standard. So effectively you get the big touchscreen on every Niro EV now.
It even comes bundled with a premium sound system and a navigation system. You’re getting an impressively well-equipped EV even if you pick the base EX trim.
