Hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or full electric – the Kia Niro has your fleet needs.

Not every ship is ready to use 100% electricity. Wherever you are on your journey, the Kia Niro is the ideal model for the transition to an electric fleet. Learn about the different powertrain options for this popular C-CUV.

With its spacious interior, ample storage space and advanced connectivity and safety features, the Kia Niro remains a popular choice among fleets. Depending on your fleet’s individual circumstances, a battery-electric, plug-in hybrid, or Niro hybrid may be the best option to reduce your fleet’s emissions.

Electric battery: no emissions for short trips

With zero tailpipe emissions, the battery-electric Kia Niro is the most environmentally friendly choice. With a 64.8kWh battery providing an all-electric driving range of up to 460km (WLTP), this BEV is suitable for more than short trips and daily commutes. Employees will also appreciate the smooth and almost silent drive. From a cost perspective, the large initial investment can be offset by government incentives and reduced operating costs over the life of the vehicle, as BEVs have lower maintenance costs than combustion engine vehicles.

Plug-in combo: the best of both worlds

The Niro plug-in hybrid combines the benefits of electric and petrol power, offering improved fuel efficiency and longer electric driving range than traditional hybrids but also the assurance of a petrol engine. It can be charged at a regular home outlet or EV charging station for maximum convenience. The Smartstream 1.6 GDI petrol engine works in tandem with a 62kW e-motor, resulting in a combined maximum power of 183 PS and an electric-only range of up to 65km (WLTP).

Niro combination: for high fuel efficiency when charging is not an option

Even fleets without access to charging stations can benefit from the increased fuel efficiency and reduced emissions of the hybrid Niro. The same four-cylinder engine as the PHEV and a 32kW electric motor produce a combined output of 141 PS. As with other electric vehicles, the Niro Hybrid benefits from braking, capturing and storing energy that would otherwise be wasted. Drivers can benefit from maximum driving efficiency without the need to charge. And without range worries, the hybrid Niro is also suitable for long journeys and continuous driving.

Consider adopting one of three electrified Kia Niro variants to reduce emissions and improve efficiency depending on your market, company or EV readiness.
