Does the Niro EV come with a spare tire?

Or is it like many other electric vehicles I've learned about from forums that they don't have a spare tire, only a can of tire-flat goo stuff??

No it does not come with a spare tire, sorry. Same as all the other SUVs, they shave weight to increase the range.

Looks like Kia kept the retaining bolt for the spare tire, so you could buy one from Kia.

Or, there's gotta be another KIA vehicle with the same bolt pattern as the Niro EV, so you could buy one cheap at the wreckers and bolt it down in place of the charging cable organizer...

Thank-you! This is the information I was looking for.

I will talk to my dealer and start researching other tires from older KIA models.

No, but it's better than the U.S. version of the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which I owned, in that sealant and pump comes with it, which it doesn't with the Bolt EV. On this forum, people have said that the Niro spare tire kit fits it.
