Following the success of their hybrid Optima and Optima Sportswagon models, Kia have announced the launch of their latest PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle). The existing Kia Niro hybrid (non-plug-in) Crossover has filled a niche in the market, with dimensions falling between the smaller Cee'd and the larger Sportage. By converting the stylish Kia Niro crossover B-SUV over to a plug-in hybrid powertrain, Kia are clearly stating their intent to transform their range with green alternatives across the board.
The Kira Niro Plug-in Hybrid has CO2 emissions of just 29g/km a dramatic reduction of almost 60g/km when compared with the petrol-hybrid Niro. These impressively low emissions make Niro Plug-in Hybrid the most efficient combustion-engined vehicle Kia have ever produced. Niro will head the charge in Kia's ambition to reduce average emissions by 25% by 2020. According to manufacturer statistics, this new hybrid is capable of offering a potential fuel economy of well over 200mpg.
The Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid is an exciting addition to the Kia range and heralds a new era for their B-SUV and the rest of the Kia SUV range, which will surely be next to follow.
