Kiae-Niro 64 kWh (2019) electric chargers
64 kWh battery
Vehicle type Battery Electric Vehicle
Connector type 2
Range 283 miles of electric driving
Charge speed 22 miles per hour
The same attractive SUV looks as its PHEV sister/brother, and now with a huge range of 283 miles’ electric driving on a single charge, making this a terrific part of the all-electric line-up now available in the UK. Performance is extremely brisk - and possibly requires some care for those not used to having so much torque available under their right feet – with a quoted 0-62 mph time of 7.8 seconds and plenty of power to keep up with the traffic at motorway speeds. As ever, we applaud Kia giving drivers the ability to adjust the level of regenerative braking to suit their driving style – or to default to an auto mode.

Charging at home
You can find full details of how long it takes to charge this vehicle from empty to full using a 7.4kW home charge point at the bottom of this page.
However, it's important to note that most electric car charging is done overnight when you're asleep (so you wake up to a charged vehicle) and it's very unlikely you will ever need to charge the battery from completely empty to completely full. So, in reality, most drivers will only need to "top up" their car's battery overnight - for example, from 50% to 80%.
We tested how often the average driver would need to charge each week using the Jaguar GO I-PACE app. See how we got on in this video.
