Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Kia Niro EV. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 33h15m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 20h45m 11 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 10h30m 22 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 7 hours 34 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 7 hours 34 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Kia Niro EV.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW † 64 min 150 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 80 kW † 70 kW † 41 min 240 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 80 kW † 70 kW † 41 min 240 mph
This vehicle supports Autocharge

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Autocharge: allows for a vehicle to initiate charging automatically on supported CCS charge points.

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the Kia Niro EV

Pricing

The Kia Niro EV has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £35,545 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £36,245. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Kia Niro EV is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Kia Niro EV is 150 kW (201 hp). The maximum torque is 188 lb-ft. The Kia Niro EV is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 7.8 seconds. The top speed is 104 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Kia Niro EV has an estimated total capacity of 68 kWh. The usable capacity is 64.8 kWh. An estimated range of about 235 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 165 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 350 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 7 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 10 hours 30 minutes and a charge rate of 23 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 33 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 80 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 70 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 45 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 160 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Kia Niro EV is about 276 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 147 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 393 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 185 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Kia Niro EV emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
