The Kia Niro Hybrid (HEV) gives modern hybrid technology a sleek new look, combining clean and efficient electric power with crossover practicality. The advanced parallel hybrid powertrain seamlessly blends petrol and electric power to drive our uptake towards a more sustainable future.
The arrival of the Niro HEV represents the end of a long and determined campaign by Kia to bring alternate fuel vehicles to Australia, but just the beginning of a much more comprehensive future for electric propulsion in Australia.
Kia Australia’s Chief Operating Officer, Damien Meredith, said that Australians realise the importance of electrification more than ever before.
“Kia is thrilled to start its electric vehicle journey in Australia with the new Niro,” said Meredith.
“The technically advanced Niro demonstrates Kia’s research and development in this area is a hint of what else Kia will be offering when it comes to zero-emissions driving.
“Our movement towards a greener future is important not just for the industry, but for the Australian government, councils and the wider community.”
The front of the Niro HEV displays a gloss black tiger nose grille, silver skid plates and double chevron styled daytime running lamps. From the side the crossover cues continue with roof rails adding style and practicality with black wheel arch cladding giving a more rugged appearance while retaining the aerodynamic benefits of the overall design. Viewed from the rear the Niro HEV displays LED taillights with separate reverse lights and reflectors.
Coupled with an active air flap behind the grille and low rolling resistant tyres, fuel efficiency and conserving energy are standouts as a daily driver. The Niro HEV comes in S and Sport options and is available in eight different colours.
