What is the Niro PHEV Range?

The all-new Kia Niro has a projected range of 253 miles of range around Valencia. According to information from Car and Driver, the Niro has a combined city/highway rating of 105 MPGe, and an all-electric range of 33 miles. To put this in perspective, the Kia Niro PHEV can be driven around town on its all-electric motor, but not for long distances. For distance travel, you will need to rely on the combination of the electric motor and the combustion engine. Nevertheless, the 105 MPGe rating is fantastic, and if you are a longer distance driver, you’ll find that you need to stop for fill-ups far less often.

What is the Niro PHEV Charging Time?

When you buy your Niro, you’ll receive two charging cables—one for home use with a standard three-pin 120-volt plug and another Type-2 cable that you can use at public charging stations (or at home if you install the charging wallbox). The latter option charges more quickly; you’ll be able to go from zero to full in about two hours and 15 minutes. However, using the at-home 120v cable, it will take roughly six hours to fully charge the battery, and most people choose to charge it overnight if they are reliant on Level 1 charging.

While the 2020 Kia Niro plug-in hybrid charging time is sufficient for most users considering the addition of the gas-powered engine, it is noticeably longer than full EVs. The fast-charge option is not available on the PHEV as it is fitted with a standard gas engine that charges the battery as you drive.

What to Expect from the 2023 Kia Niro PHEV

The 2023 Kia Niro PHEV has been on the market since 2017, and those who are loyal to the Niro hybrid models have found that each iteration is better than the last. The newest model’s all-electric range of 33 miles exceeds previous models’ 26 to 27 miles, and while it isn’t much, it does show that the manufacturer is dedicated to improving its technology.

With 105 MPGe and the ability to travel some 33 miles on the electric battery alone, the Kia Niro is a fantastic option for drivers who take quick trips as well as for those who drive longer distances. The charging time isn’t the fastest, but because of the gas engine that charges the battery as you drive, most owners have found that there’s very little need to charge the PHEV fully at home or otherwise.
