Plug into the best of both worlds.
Electric when you want it. Petrol when you need it. The Niro Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) lets you plug in, charge up, and go electric when you’re running errands around town or fuel up for your long weekend road trips, bridging the gap between hybrid and fully-electric vehicles.
It’s just as impressive on the inside, too — giving you advanced connectivity, tons of crossover SUV versatility, and a range of intuitive technology and features.
Modern front design
The bold front grille is surrounded by dual chevron-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights, while the dual LED headlights provide exceptional visibility and an unforgettable light signature, day or night.

^Fuel consumption figures are based on ADR81/02 test results (same as NEDC defined by UNECE R101/01). They are useful in comparing the fuel consumption of different vehicles. They may not be the fuel consumption achieved in practice. This will depend on traffic and road conditions and how the vehicle is driven. Real life driving results will vary depending on a combination of driving style, type of journey, vehicle configuration, battery age and condition, use of vehicle features (such as heating and air conditioning), as well as operating, environmental and climate conditions. Charge time is based on optional 3.3kW Kia wall box charger.
