kia niro battery size

Kia’s stylists have kia niro battery size  a handful of tweaks to set the different Niros apart. There’s a little extra trim up high and a quasi bash plate look to the front bumper, but overall it’s a well-integrated design. There’s also a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels that look nicer than the 16s on the EV.

The new battery has a larger capacity (64 kWh versus 60 kWh) but otherwise isn’t much different than the old one. Kia says that this version will be able to accelerate from zero to 100 mph in just under seven seconds and can go 265 miles on a full charge, although the actual range may vary slightly depending on driving conditions and how much you use the battery to power ancillary systems.

This Niro EV uses the SAE Combined Charging System (CCS) port to support rapid charging at up to 80 kW. With an Electrify America 75 kW charger it takes about 45 minutes to charge from 10% to 80%. You can also recharge it at home with a Level 2, 240-volt cable, though it will take longer—up to six hours to get to 100%.
