The electric car we've been waiting for

by Aaron from Amherst, MA | June 09, 2020

We were early adopters, back in 2004 or 2005, when we bought one of the first Priuses in our part of the state. Since we've owned a Prius V, both a CMax and Honda Clarity PHEV, and a Chevy Bolt. The Kia Niro EV is by far our favorite of the bunch. In a market segment given to huge display screens, wiz-bang gadgetry and few manual controls, the Niro stands out as a paragon of simple, practical, common-sense design. Both my wife and I got into the car and immediately knew where every control was located - exactly where it should be. The car drives well, range is stellar (consistently over 300 miles in warm weather), and it has a surprising amount of interior space for a relatively small car. We purchased it with the winter package - a necessity here in New England - and we are hopeful the battery heater will solve the problem we had with Bolt, where range dropped by half during the winter. The Niro is not a high end car like a BMW or Tesla, but it is a wonderfully comfortable and practical one. In fact, we liked it so much we purchased it instead of leasing. That's how sure we are that this one's a keeper.

The most fun I've ever had driving a car

Comfortable, fun to drive.....and we pass every gas station. Plug it in once or twice a week and in the morning the "tank" is full. 285 miles on a charge normally gets me through a week of driving.

Instant Torque, Great Range, Great Quality

by CalifEVdriver from San Jose, CA | February 18, 2020

This car has been great so far. I've owned the car for 4 months now and have had no issues. The interior is excellent, the automated driving features are excellent, and the touch screen is good. I gave this a 5/5 for value because of the US federal tax credit of $7500, otherwise it would be a 3/5. At ~$39,000, this car is an OK buy, but at $32,000, it's exceptional. No oil changes, no trips to the gas station, instant torque, great headlights, quiet drive, and great automatic safety features. I have only two complaints so far with this vehicle: First, the seatbelts easily get twisted, and rattle rather loudly whenever you turn the car if they're twisted. Second, for not having an engine, you hear quite a bit of noise while driving - especially the whirring of the motors/drive train. These are both minor gripes, and don't make me regret my decision one bit.
