With its Parallel Hybrid System, regenerative braking, and dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Niro Plug-In Hybrid delivers a perfect pairing of optimized efficiency and dynamic performance. And with a 10-year/100,000-mile warranty that covers the hybrid system, including the electric motor and battery, you can hit the road to adventure confidently.
While the Niro Plug-In Hybrid is built on the back of the award-winning Niro with all its innovative features, we managed to push the bar even further. We introduced a new Hybrid Power Control Unit that delivers the same high performance in a smaller, lighter footprint with improved cooling. Plus, we installed a more powerful electric motor, along with a larger battery with no impact on interior volume or cargo space.
At the core of Niro Plug-in Hybrid’s innovative powertrain is Kia’s Full Parallel Hybrid System. It combines the power of our hybrid-optimized Atkinson cycle engine, a highly efficient electric motor, and a powerful lithium-ion polymer battery. The result is smooth, reliable performance that delivers hybrid efficiency with 105 MPGe combined.
The Niro Plug-In Hybrid features a highly responsive, 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) with Sport Mode that shifts gears smoothly and quickly for seamless acceleration that turns any drive into a thrill ride. And with just a quick tilt of the shifter into "S" you can punch into Sport Mode for improved steering feel, increased throttle response, and higher revs.
The black tiger-nose grille with satin chrome trim attacks any adventure with striking style.
The On-Board Charger (OBC) featuring both Level 1 (120 V) and Level 2 (240 V) charge capability is conveniently located on the driver's side for quick and easy access.
While its exterior is striking, the Niro Plug-In Hybrid reveals an inner beauty of carefully crafted comfort and convenience. From the versatile utility of its interior space to premium appointments and customizable driver features, every detail is designed to deliver an exhilarating experience.
Despite its plug-in features and battery pack hidden under the rear floor, the Niro Plug-In Hybrid still comes with a spacious cargo area to fit your lifestyle. Plus, folding rear seats let you fit larger items to offer expansive versatility for all life's adventures.
Niro Plug-In Hybrid features intuitive standard amenities like a dual-zone AC with driver-only mode and auto-dimming rearview mirror. Available heated and ventilated front seats in addition to a heated steering wheel let you customize your comfort.
Find your ideal seat position with the available 10-Way Power Driver’s Seat and keep it that way with the Integrated Memory Seat (IMS) system that remembers mirror and seat settings for up to two drivers. Plus, available light gray two-tone leather interior with electric blue accents will make anyone sit up and take notice.
From the available opulence of leather seats and vibrant stitching to the standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, your Niro-Plug-In looks as good as it runs with refined materials and attention to detail throughout.
The Niro Plug-In Hybrid’s hi-tech design extends all the way to the information highway thanks to the incorporation of the latest innovations. With features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to available wireless charging and Harman/Kardon® Premium Sound System, you can get in the fast lane to the future.
The Niro Plug-In Hybrid helps strengthen your peace of mind with an Iso-Structure™ composed of over 50% advanced high-strength steel for excellent rigidity. And our patented manufacturing techniques further reinforce body integrity, to help protect the passenger compartment in certain collisions.
Our passive safety systems are engineered to react to emergencies. The advanced airbags include high-tech sensors designed to manage airbag inflation after certain impacts. Special front and rear crumple zones help to preserve the structural integrity of the passenger compartment in certain collisions, and all doors are reinforced with steel beams to help absorb and deflect certain impact forces.
Active safety technology functions automatically to help avoid problems before they arise. Systems like Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) help keep you safely on track.
