Kia Niro Electric
Body Type = SUV
Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) grew in popularity in the early 1990s due to the Ford Explorer making insane sales figures. However, due to their gas-guzzling qualities, their popularity wained over time, but with the advent of electric vehicles (EVs) hitting the market, EV SUVs have grown in popularity once again due to the Tesla Model X and Audi e-Tron SUVs being perceived well by critics and fans alike.
Drive Train = FWD
Front Wheel Drive or FWD for short means the car's drivetrain is delivered by the front axel of the car. Cars that are FWD are generally more nimble and responsive which suits body styles like crossovers and hatchbacks. FWD cars generally get better mileage (EV or Gas/Petrol) which makes them popular in Europe or areas where roads are narrow and fuel is expensive.

With the Korean KIA being such a progressive company they are they were one of the first big established players on the market and follow suit by launching their first all-electric mass production lineup of KIA Soul back in 2014, which was followed in 2018 by this improved and updated range - KIA Niro. Being a vastly improved technologically an aesthetically from the first experience of the Soul was, the Niro rang being the 5-door SUV it is was meant to be more of a family-sized car. With a spin on features satisfying both for soccer moms and more avid solo drivers looking for a sizeable EV to roam around in, the Niro range has surely put the KIA brand in the EV game. Having limited this range to one car type unlike Audi with its e-tron, the Niro range has proved to be a very consistent range offering similar variants that both in its power and performance and the price can be directly compared to the Tesla Model S or Model X. Its FWD with 1 to 2 motors depending on the specific variant of the range showcases some great attributes across the board.

More power and performance metrics that make it truly stand out from the rest, including the ever so important for EVs range. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 240 mi without a single recharge which is a gerat starting point for most avid and interstate travelers to even start considering it just as it goes the same for most city dwellers. Another nice thing about the KIA Nir rang besides a competitive range it offers is its very competitive affordable price which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other top-of-the-line ranges like Tesla Model X or other offer at a higher cost.
