When you see a 2024 Kia Niro EV on the road in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Birmingham, Montgomery, or Huntsville, its stunning new exterior styling is likely to catch your attention long before you consider how it’s powered. Of course, the smooth and almost silent way it glides past will give the game away about its fully-electric powertrain. But there’s plenty to admire about the all-new Niro EV than its electric motor and lack of emissions.
Two versions of the 2024 Kia Niro EV are available. But to assume that means different battery sizes, ranges, and considerably different MSRPs would be wrong. The all-new second-generation 2024 Niro EV is available in Wind and Wave trim levels that reflect the Niro EV’s concept of sustainability. Both models feature the same electric powertrain, so deciding between the two models comes down to which specification is right for you.
Both trim levels also share the Niro EV’s stunning new styling that adds a touch of class and a more premium feel to a model that’s never been offered in a gas-only format. A standout styling cue of the all-new Niro EV is the striking boomerang body panel that comes in silver or black that Kia calls an air blade, extending from the roof to the rear wheels. The all-new Niro EV is a stunning design that immediately catches the eye and fits in nicely with other recently restyled Kia models while maintaining an element of uniqueness.
The 2024 Kia Niro EV has the honor of being the fastest, quietest, and most efficient model in the all-new Niro family, and the EV could account for 25 percent or more of all Niro sales in the future. The electric powertrain develops 201 horsepower and 188 lb.-ft. of torque, and the same 64.8 kWh battery is found in both Wind and Wave versions of the Niro EV. The charging port conforms to the SAE J1772 and Combined Charging System (CCS) standards, so recharging the Niro at most available networks won’t be a problem. When a DC fast charger is available, a charge of up to 80% of the battery can be achieved in around 43 minutes. The EPA-estimated MPGe is a combined 113 MPGe, and the estimated range on a full charge of the battery is 253 miles.
Some may argue whether the 2024 Kia Niro EV is a crossover SUV or should be considered a tall hatch instead. However, the interior is generously spacious, and there’s no disputing the impressive 39.8 inches of legroom in the rear seats that’s more than you’ll find in the second rows of many much larger three-row SUVs. The cargo volume behind the 60/40 split rear seats has also grown with the arrival of the second generation, so you now get 22.8 cu.-ft. instead of the previous model’s 19.4 cu.-ft.
Both trim levels get standard dual-zone climate control, a power tailgate, roof rails, heated front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you upgrade to the Wave trim level, you’ll enjoy the additional benefits of a premium Harman Kardon audio system, a Digital Key feature, perforated SynTex upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and more.
The 2024 Kia Niro EV is a stylish compact crossover SUV that would attract the attention of discerning new car shoppers regardless of what it does (or doesn’t) have under its hood.
