news-open-image

The Kia e-Niro has been our best-selling PCO car over the last few years — and you have to admit, they can be seen everywhere in London. 

The exciting news is, the all-new 72-plate Kia Niro EV is available to pre-order on Rent 2 Buy + now. And the Otto Team have put together the major changes to help you decide if it’s the perfect car to own as an Uber driver.

What’s the difference between the e-Niro and the Niro EV?

Basically the name of the car has been changed from e-Niro to Niro EV. The main reason for that was to bring ‘Niro EV’ in line with Niro HEV and Niro PHEV, as well as the rest of Kia’s electric car range e.g. Soul EV.

But the new Kia Niro EV is so much more than just a name change…

How many miles will the new Niro EV go on a full charge?

All models of the second-generation Kia Niro EV come with one single battery — a slightly larger 64.8kWh battery. The improved driving range for the new vehicle is up to 285 miles on a charge, which is pretty decent for private hire drivers.

Now let’s talk about the design

To be honest, the Kia Niro EV looks nothing like the old one. The most noticeable new design is inspired by the Kia HabaNiro concept back in 2019, featuring a rugged 4×4-inspired side cladding and the latest version of Kia’s Tiger Face front end. Does the new look remind you of the popular Kia Sportage?

Inside, the cabin of the Niro feels sharp and stylish too. The interior quality is impressive with a nearly-new design. It gets a new dashboard layout that’s similar to the one on the Kia EV6. What’s more — we heard that the infotainment system has been highly praised by many motoring journalists. Take a look at the official video here.

Is the new Niro EV bigger?

Yes, the new Kia Niro EV is longer, wider and taller than the previous generation. It’s now 4,420mm long, 1,825mm wide and 1,545mm tall. Thanks to the new chassis, the new vehicle has a 20mm longer wheelbase, which means there’s more space inside to make sure passengers are more comfortable.

What trims are available?

If you get a PCO car from a dealer, you’ll get to choose from three trim levels, ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘4’, depending on needs and budget — but remember, the higher the spec, the more expensive it is. 

The basic Niro EV 2, for example, comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, fabric upholstery, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster and an 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
