2023 Kia Niro: new spy shots...

Today we finally get to see more of the next-generation Kia Niro. 

It seems like a pretty original design. Although looking a little bit more like a regular SUV than the current tall wagon shape. (Some current owners might not like that)

With all these new Ioniq models, the next Niro might be caught in a bad place, as Kia is now making a huge push for fully electric cars.
And the next Niro is not based on their new EV platform.

I think the most relevant model could be the PHEV. If they can drastically increase the electric range. 
The current model has a 26 miles electric range. But it starts at around $29 000 ($25 000 after current federal incentives). So it is really an inexpensive way to get a PHEV.

 If they double the EV range and keep the price down, the Niro might have a chance to attract people still afraid to jump into the EV world.

Vince - It's time to lay off the daytime drinking. Yet more examples:

...the Niro might have a CHANGE attracting people...

And since when did Hyundai change it's spelling to HUNDAY??

Your bad grammar and spelling are getting worse (not better).

I like it. Looks much more upscale than the current Niro.

In reality the Kia EV6 starts at around 40K. The Niro will be cheaper because it is a hybrid. So how is the Niro in trouble?
