Kia are planning an update for the e-Niro electric SUV for 2020 and are promising that the current very limited availability will be solved.
When Kia revealed the electric e-Niro SUV more than eighteen months ago it looked to be a properly appealing electric SUV.
Offering all that the Niro offers but with a 64kWh battery pack, 201bhp and a range of getting on for 300 miles, it looked to be a real alternative to an ICE car for many.
There is also a less powerful e-Niro with a 39.2kWh battery pack and a smaller 133bhp motor, but even the range-topping Kia e-Niro First Edition – complete with the big battery and motor – came in at a reasonable £32,995 when it arrived on sale this time last year.
But such was the demand, and so limited the supply, that Kia sold the e-Niro out in quick sticks for 2019, but now they’re promising things will be different in 2020.
Kia say they will now be able to complete the 3,000 orders they already have during the first six months of 2020, and will have a further supply from July – and are now taking new orders.
The 2020 e-Niro will also come with LED headlights, ambient lighting, 10.25″ touchscreen and a new telematics system, with prices which look to be up by about £1k.
