The 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid joins the Kia lineup as its third plug-in model. Car shoppers who like the design of the traditional Niro Hybrid model will be pleased to know that the plug-in hybrid variant will offer very similar exterior and interior styling as well as a similar features list. The only monumental changes will be under the hood where the 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid will feature a 1.6-liter GDI engine, 8.9 kWh battery, and an electric motor. The 2018 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is now available at the Paul Cerame Kia dealership in St. Louis MO for car shoppers who are interested.

How Far Can You Go in the 2018 Kia Niro PHEV?

In the past, one of the largest deterrents to purchasing an electric vehicle was the driving range. Car shoppers were worried they would be limited on where they could go. The 2018 Kia Niro-Plug In Hybrid solves that problem thanks to a blended powertrain that offers all-electric driving capabilities combined with a traditional hybrid powertrain. The all-electric motor should get drivers about 26 miles* on a full battery which should be plenty for shorter trips across town or to pick up the kids from school. When more driving range or power is needed, it switches to the hybrid engine. In total, the 2018 Niro Plug-In Hybrid has a combined driving range of about 560 miles**.

*EPA-estimated range on a full battery charge. Actual range will vary based on driving habits, vehicle maintenance, charging practice, battery age, weather, temperature, and road/traffic conditions. Battery capacity will decrease with time and use. For more information on range, please see www.fueleconomy.gov.
**Based on range listed at fueleconomy.gov, which cautions that range assumes a full tank and 100% of fuel in tank will be used before refueling. Actual range will vary with options, driving conditions, driving habits and your vehicle’s condition. Kia recommends that you refuel as soon as possible after the low fuel warning light illuminates or sooner.
