I am not impressed by this car at all! Styling and interior is dull. Interior looks like it feels cheap. Infographic etc look old. 29 hours to charge! And £35 base. Crazy

I drive a 2006 scion xB and I'm in the market for a new car and wanted to go electric. This looks like the closest for what I'm looking for. I love the "in-between" an suv and a hatchkback design. I just wish they had an "extended range" version, since I don't feel like America has the charging infrastructure built in and I live in an apartment without charging availability.

Loved watching this e-niro and your 2000 miles but what I would like to know is How much did it cost you for the mileage covered?

All vehicles have been increasing a lot over the last few years.. The manufacturers have been forced into adding all sorts of emission kit and safety kit... This has pushed the prices up a lot.. EVs have gone to a whole new league of prices that most people either can't afford or don't want to pay.. After all who wants to pay these prices for a Korean hatchback on stilts? If it was around the £20-25,000 it would have interest from a lot of people but at West of £35,000 it falls off the radar.. It will attract well healed, naive middle class types but that's it.. Those with more money won't want a KIA.. Those with less money will look for a lightly used ICE vehicle that will cost £15-20,000..

One is a well screwed together car that does everything it promises to do reasonably well and made by a company who has a good record for after sales customer relationships and knows how to make cars for profit as opposed to relying in selling environmental credits to stay in business. The other is a Tesla!!

12:45 Rapid charging is NOT the best way to charge, as if you do, you'll considerably shorten the battery life. i.e. Tesla S shuttle from LA to Las Vegas... It's a bit like saying cigarettes and going to help with your breathing difficulties! :D It's a pity that carWow couldn't find someone who knows about electric cars to review it. and not 250m but if driven carefully can do over 400miles on a charge!

Дмитрий, к слову к выбору online казино надо тоже подходить с умом. Само собой, когда вы играете в вулкан 24 то вы ни разу не выиграете деньги, а если подойти к данному вопросу умнее то сможете знать, что имеются такие как эльдорадо казино, придуманные на коленке и не отвечающие ни за что, а также есть казино с выданной лицензией, где подстройка аппаратов отсутствует. Так что не надо судить только по левым сайтам. Лист лицензионных игорных заведений онлайн можно увидеть здесь:

Heating only possible with a combustion engine👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 Please take a critical look at the subject of heating on all KIA plug-in models! From October to Easter you not only need winter tires but usually also a heater. Therefore, the E-license plate for the KIA plug-in hybrids is only an empty sign for the period mentioned. This situation is criminally to be denounced! The resulting CO2 emissions (this is even significantly higher on short trips) compared to other manufacturers with electrical heating of the interior, this technical implementation is not too acceptable! Here the Federal Environment Agency should threaten the manufacturer with consequences (e.g. cut the innovation premium). Maybe then KIA will react ... Related customer inquiries about the faux pas are dismissed with flimsy justifications to protect the engine.

Why buy a new car the depreciation is so high. I think the government need to look into this as soon as possible. High Depreciation puts people off buying new cars and second hand cars as well.

If it only had a slightly bigger boot I could get my dogs crate into I'd have one like that. Probably my favourite of the "affordable" electric cars at the moment.

I think its pretty easy to be negative with things like the infotainment system and old style interior bulbs etc however what you need to remember is, the amount of standard kit is huge with these. In some cases way more than much more expensive cars in the electric field. That, the amount of range this model has along with how much you save in cost compared to the e Niro's rivals, you have to be fair Kia have came along and shown all the big players that it can be done and done well for a reasonable price. They have nailed this car, for the market its intended, everyday family life.

Also. The 7 year warranty from Kia is valid in the UK, but it is not a worldwide warranty. Some other countries will have a shorter warranty span.

I have just rejected one after 3 weeks of ownership. It broke down twice with the same faults. The second breakdown was only a couple of days after getting the car back from kia after 10 days. To be fair to Kia and the dealership they have been spot on and very understanding and equal as frustrated as us. They have offered to swap the car for a new one and lucky for them my wife is happy to give them another go as personally I'd walk away from kia for good and ev's for another couple of years. I understand this kind of thing happens to all cars from time to time but when it happens to you its hard not to be impacted by it. We'll get the second one in a few weeks and hopefully everything will be alright, as it is a fun drive when it works. Just wanted to post here as I watched every HRpost video there is and read every Facebook post and lots of online forums and never seen or heard anything like this. Not the eutopia I was expecting and so far my worst car ever hopefully I have a different tune after a few thousand trouble free miles on a new one.

I test drove several compact crossovers past several days and decided on Niro lxs today, it felt roomy inside and the ride was satisfactory plus the warranty is better then the rest not to mention upfront and future gas $$ savings, it was a no brainer choice.
Stewiedude1 Prije 8 mjeseci
I love matt and I love carwow but the remark at 12:00 is just absolute bollocks and adds to the spread of misinformation. The car has a genuine 200 mile range minimum. If you commuted even 60 miles a day you would easily hit 100k in 7 years. It would be arguably easier to do it in this if you only ever charged at home than in an ICE car where you have to go out of your way to a fuel station. Disappointed 😞

Do you know whether the e Niro 4 has the heat pump that increases range in the winter months by reducing battery drain when the interior heater is on?

Is there a spare tire in the boot? I would encourage you to make a point on this. I know the Tesla S and X do not have a spare tire, and I am assuming the electric BMW and electric Mercedez Benz do not have one either, but I honestly do not know. Sadly, many car manufacturers are not placing a spare tire in new cars.
David Prije 5 mjeseci
A spare wheel isn't supplied as standard as is common with virtually all manufacturers. However there is a well in the boot that will accommodate a spare wheel. You can purchase a spare wheel either from the (s)dealer if you want to pay through the nose for it, or on the internet for a third of their price. You will of course also require a jack!

Sorry to disappoint....but is is short-live the petrol car, they are now a dying breed. And quite rightly so, it's about time that we all did our bit to reduce pollution.

In the UK, unless you live in central London, it makes no financial sense whatsoever to run an EV. They are just another vanity vehicle to show how much money you have to waste
David Prije 5 mjeseci
I disagree, my EV costs 1.2 pence per mile to run, no road tax, no engine with hundreds of parts that can fail or wear out, no oil/filters, spark plugs to change, brake pad wear is negligible as brakes are rarely used (one pedal driving). Then there is no wasted time visiting petrol stations tediously waiting for someone to vacate a pump while they browse and do their weekly shopping in the shop, it has a "full tank" every morning if desired, can be pre heated and defrosted automatically before departure. Oh, and in the year and a half that I have owned it has depreciated by less than £ 3k.
Diamondblade2008 Prije 9 mjeseci
Drove one on a test drive today. It is seriously quick pulling away from a standstill. It is near silent when cruising along, save for a bit of road noise from the tyres. The only sound I heard from the motor is a gentle hum when slowing to a standstill or slowly pulling away. However I do have a few minor gripes though: The steering has an obvious 'dead centre' feel going in a straight line. The rotary gear selector is a bit fiddly; I would have preferred a standard lever. There seems to be far too many buttons for the aircon/infotainment system and on the steering wheel. The ridiculous 'Windows XP' style noises when you start it up and turn it off and the overbearing wealth of information displayed on its screens. It felt like driving a laptop at times. Having said those, I would probably buy one when they start to come more mainstream, more affordable and its time to change my existing car when it eventually starts to conk out.

Polestar2 is a lovely car, great design & build quality but currently has many problems. It is inefficient compared with other EV's due to the weight which equates to very poor range. I had one on order an cancelled it.

The reason why I totally LOVE the Kia e-Niro, Kia e-Soul (and Hyundai Kona) is because you can still turn off the ESP and TRC. That makes it possible to go around the corner with smoking tyres and that's just big fun although it's totally wrong in every days traffic. But hey why shouldn't we car journalists (my website is a Dutch online Car Magazine) have fun sometimes.....
Ronin585 Prije 10 mjeseci
For me, the Kia e-Niro is the best battery electric vehicle BEV today in quality, price, equipment, range, energy efficiency, safety and warranty.
David Prije 5 mjeseci
I agree, there is currently no better alternative car that offers value for money at this price point. Extremely well equipped with a great range. Many e-niro owners achieve 309+ mile range.

The paddles allow adjustment of the level of regenerative breaking to suit the drivers taste or dependent upon the driving style. It also has an "auto" mode that adapts it automatically. A great feature well worth having.

Most cars have low resolution reverse cameras and the door mirrors are actually quite big because I have one. Why compare the Niro to a Jag that is twice the cost? If anything we should be give credit to car company's like Kia, Hyundai, Toyota, and Nissan making electric vehicles more affordable to ordinary people.
David Prije 5 mjeseci
Car reviewers do this "comparison" mistake all the time. Obviously can't be compared with a car costing twice the price. It's because he can't find a car at this price point to compare it with, because there isn't one! This is currently the best value for money EV, nothing is even close other than their sibling cars (kona, soul).
