“Really feel the Automotive?” What?
We’re fairly stoked in regards to the 2019 Kia Niro EV right here at InsideEVs. It should supply clients wonderful driving vary and many inside house for (in all probability) lower than $40,000 earlier than incentives. Kia had appeared to be taking one thing of a low-key method in advertising this automobile — Robert di Niro spot apart — so we have been fortunately shocked to see that it has simply launched a brand new video (above) showcasing a number of the crossover’s sturdy factors.
Titled “Fast Look,” the minute-and-nine-second clip opens up with the tagline “Really feel the Automotive,” (no, we do not know what’s up with that, both) earlier than giving us a fast take a look at numerous angles of a super-glossy white instance. Then, it dives into some particulars.
We study that the electrical motor within the Niro EV weighs solely 40.three kg (88.85 kilos), but can produce 204 horsepower, which permits it to hustle to 100 kph (62 miles per hour) in a laudable 7.eight seconds from a cease. Because the picture shifts to a graphic displaying the battery placement within the flooring of the automobile, we’re advised that it holds a beneficiant 64 kWh of power, permitting the all-electric to boast a variety of 385 km (239 miles). We’re then knowledgeable it has a high-efficiency PE system. (Bonus factors for anybody who can inform us what that’s in Feedback)
Transferring to its charging functionality, we study that it might settle for a 100-kW move of electrons and fill that large battery, empty-to-full, in 54 minutes. Apparently, it claims that its low-temperature charging is “improved.”
The video strikes to the infotainment system, focusing on the data a part of that portmanteau. We’re proven how the display can overlay the out there vary on a map, giving us our whole drivable space, which needs to be fairly useful if it’s correct.
We don’t need to give the whole video away, however let’s simply say that it moreover touches on security and some cool options discovered inside the cabin. Get pleasure from!
