The current Niro, which is based on the ‘J-Eco’ architecture shared with the Hyundai Ioniq, was first introduced in 2016. The all-electric version of the same shall be arriving in 2018. Kia is already preparing its replacement despite the fact that it has been introduced recently.
Features of Kira Niro
Available in three powertrains: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric, it is a small SUV. Same playbook is to be followed by the new Niro, however, it is possible that certain markets shall not get all three options.
We can see the rear LED tail-lights resemble the Kia Habaniro concept car which was first shown in 2019. This is evident despite the heavy camouflage revealing little of the 2022 Niro.
While the butterfly doors, long sweeping windscreen, and bright red interior of the Habaniro concept won’t be seen on the production car, we can expect the styling to influence the design direction of the new Niro. The new Kia Niro is expected to be unveiled in the middle of 2021 for a 2022 launch.
