Second-generation model rated at an EPA-estimated 253 miles of all-electric range and quicker charging: can recharge from 10 to 80 percent in under 45 minutes

IRVINE, Calif. – Today, Kia announced pricing for the all-new 2023 Niro EV, the second-generation crossover designed from the ground up to meet and exceed the expectations of electric vehicle consumers. Offered in Niro EV Wind and Niro EV Wave trim levels, the 2023 Niro EV features an MSRP of $39,450.

Trim Levels/Pricing – MSRP (excludes $1295 destination)

  • Niro EV Wind – $39,450
  • Niro EV Wave – $44,450

Inside and out, the Niro EV presents a bold design inspired by Kia’s “Opposites United” philosophy that infuses inspiration from nature with aerodynamic refinement. The second-generation model retains a compact footprint but is incrementally larger than the vehicle it replaces. Upscale materials inside the Niro EV include seats covered by high-quality bio polyurethane and Tencel™ made from eucalyptus leaves and a headliner composed of reconditioned wallpaper. Available panoramic, dual 10.25-inch screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment system and an optional eight-speaker harman/kardon® sound system add premium touches to the interior.

Powered by a 64.8 kWh battery and a 150kW (201-hp) motor with DC fast-charging capability as standard, the Niro EV is rated at an EPA-estimated 253 miles of all-electric range. When connected to a Level 3 fast charger, the Niro EV can recharge from 10 to 80 percent in under 45 minutes, at a maximum charging capability of 85 kW. Available on both Niro EV trim levels, the Preserve Package adds cold-weather readiness with heated rear seats and a heat pump.

Standard driver assist features on all Niro EV models are Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance with Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Junction Turning, and Lane Following Assist.

The 2023 Niro EV is expected to arrive at Kia retailers this month and will be available in all 50 states.
