A hybrid, like the Kia Niro Hybrid, uses a combination of power from an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. In the case of the Kia Niro Hybrid, that’s a 1.6-liter hybrid engine that produces 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.

An EV, or electric vehicle, is a vehicle without an internal combustion engine. It runs entirely on the power produced by the electric motor. The electric motor in the Kia Niro EV offers 201 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque, and delivers a fully electric range of 253 miles on a single charge.

Fueling Up

Hybrid vehicles actually recharge when you’re out on the go, which means you won’t need to make time to charge. EVs, which offer significant fuel savings because there’s no internal combustion engine, do need to charge. The Kia Niro EV will charge from 20-80% in just 43 minutes when you use DC Fast Charging.

You’ll want to consider your daily driving needs when deciding between a hybrid and EV model.

Capacity and Strength

One thing is for certain: both the Kia Niro EV and the Kia Niro Hybrid deliver on the space and capability you and your family deserve. Both models have seating for up to five passengers. You’ll have 22.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, and 63.7 cubic feet of space when the seat is folded.
