2019 Kia Niro EV




Kia has finally revealed the production version of the Electric Niro.
And, of course, it doesn't really look like the concept (bottom picture) we saw just a few months ago.

The production model just has a different front end. But keeps the same fenders, lights etc...

And that revised face doesn't look at all like the one on the concept.
(Why even bother showing us that)

It will be available in 2 versions. One with about 150 miles range, the other with around 240.
It will go n sale in Korea this July.
No news about the US version yet.

Front end is ugly looking and takes away from the rest of the vehicle!

And Hyundai gets the short end of the stick again. First it was getting the Ioniq car body style instead of the crossover body that Kia got with the Niro. Now, for the electric versions, Hyundai gets the smaller Kona crossover, while Kia keeps the larger Niro.

Are Hyundai's managers really bad at the coin tosses, or are they bad product managers?
