Welcome to the Kia Niro Forum! Since Kia first unveiled the all-new Niro hybrid crossover vehicle, way back in February 2016 at the Chicago Auto Show, we knew that this vehicle would be something worth waiting for!
The Kia is built on an all new vehicle platform that will be positioned below the Kia Sportage as a subcompact “hybrid utility vehicle”.
Kia believes that hybrid vehicles don’t need to sacrifice attractive design in order to be fuel efficient, so they made extra effort to make sure the Niro electric vehicle is attractive and efficient.
When the hybrid version of the 2017 Kia Niro first went on sale in South Korea, it hit an all-time sales record beating out the Hyundai IONIQ in it’s first month of sales! When the Niro EV and plug-in hybrid make it to the North American market, there’s good indication to believe it will sell very well here.
