“The Niro Plug-in is the exciting next step in Kia’s progression toward offering more alternative fuel vehicles by 2020,” Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America said in a press release. “Consumers who are intrigued by the Niro hybrid’s fantastic versatility and design, but want even more EcoDynamics technology and the ability to drive only using electric power, will find more to love in the Niro Plug-in Hybrid.”

How far will it go without gas?

The 2018 Niro PHEV is the perfect vehicle for transporting people and cargo through crowded city streets. Historically, these short trips have not always been able to translate into great fuel efficiency scores for drivers. Kia has installed a larger and more powerful electric storage system in the Niro Plug-in Hybrid. When the system is fully charged, current information from the Environmental Protection Agency says that the Niro PHEV can travel more than 25 miles without using a single drop of gasoline. Obviously, this will save drivers money at the pump, but it also has the advantage of not releasing any potentially harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

When trips requiring distances that extend beyond the electric-only range of the 2018 Kia Niro PHEV, drivers will still be using very little fuel. The EPA places a 105-mile-per-gallon-equivalent score on the Niro PHEV as well as an overall city/highway combined efficiency score of 46 mpg. When the gas and electric systems are working together, the 2018 Kia Niro PHEV should have a total range of 560 miles, according to figures available from the manufacturer.
