    Kia e-Nitro ‘2’ goes the extra mile

    Kia e-Niro ‘2’ goes the extra mile by offering more range than any other sub-£35,000 electric vehicle Kia say this week.The new model is now available to order across the UK, with customer deliveries due to start in July. Not quite as good looking as the earlier model, the EV6 I featured earlier, however, more keenly priced.

    Kia e-Tron ‘2’ with extended range and ‘lower’ pricing at just under £35,000

    Pricing ‘more affordable’ range for government grant

    The new variant features the same long-range 64kWh battery pack and high-power 150kW motor as higher-specification e-Niro models, while offering a £34,945 on-the-road price. This pricing bracket is important due to the recent announcement by the Government who have targeted the Electric Vehicle grants at ‘more affordable’ cars, the sub-£35,000 range. Kia join others like VolksWagen and MG in fighting for the EV customer since the announcement last week.

    The e-Niro ‘2’ Long Range is capable of travelling up to 282 miles on a single charge (WLTP combined), and up to 382 miles in city driving. Thats quite impressive for a lower priced car in the current market and will really take you the extra mile or more than some its competitors.

    Packed with extra features

    While its long-range battery pack and powerful electric motor delivers comparable driving range and performance to far more expensive EVs, it also provides a wide range of standard equipment. Highlights include its 8.0-inch touchscreen display, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 17-inch aluminium alloy wheels, reversing camera system and rear parking sensors, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, and Smart Key & Button Start. A battery heating system is also fitted, designed to insulate and warm up the battery while the vehicle is plugged in, minimising the adverse effects of cold temperatures.

    The ‘2’ Long Range also offers the same large cabin and spacious boot as other e-Niro models, with generous space for five occupants and 451 litres of cargo capacity.

    The e-Niro was the UK’s best-selling battery EV during the first two months of 2021, accounting for almost one in five of all nationwide EV sales up to the end of February.

    EV charging for the extra mile with national network

    All e-Niro models, including the new ‘2’ Long Range variant, allow owners to sign up to KiaCharge, a new UK-wide integrated public charging service. KiaCharge provides easier, comprehensive access to the UK public charging network for owners of the brand’s EV and PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) models. More than 15,000 charge points across the UK are accessible from a single account, including those from several major charging networks, including bp pulse, Pod Point, IONITY, Source London, Chargepoint, NewMotion, Char-gy, and ESB. Certain national and regional charging networks are also accessible via KiaCharge.
