As stated earlier, the pricing continues to remain the same as when it was first introduced.
Since there wasn’t a reference price to Budget 2077/78, as the case with Hyundai Kona and MG ZS EV, consumers feel the Kia product to be more expensive.
Kia Niro EV rivals other popular EV products like Hyundai Kona 150kW.
Compared to the rivals, Kia Niro EV offers more punch for the price, generating more power without any compromise on the range.
Hence, it isn’t as expensive as people are making it out to be, especially with Hyundai Kona (with 150kW Motor and 64kW battery) costing even more.
