The Niro EV will be the fully electric version of Kia’s subcompact crossover, following the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions already in production. Set to debut at the Paris Motor Show in September, Kia offered a sneak peek at the Niro EV via a short presser and some photos.
The upcoming production model looks much like the design conceptshown at CES earlier this year. Kia says it will have over 450 km (280 mi) of range per charge without sacrificing any of the interior space of the other production Niro models.
