The initial 900-model production run of the all-electric Kia Niro crossover may have already sold out its entire UK stock for 2019, but the good news is you can still lease one!

Lease prices currently start at £385 p/m plus initial rental, putting it in line with the Hyundai Kona Electric.

The all-electric version of the Niro crossover made its European debut at the Paris Motor Show, and gets up to 282 miles of range and a battery that can be recharged to 80% in as little as 54 minutes.

Design-wise, the e-Niro gets essentially the same look as the current car – that’s already available as a plug-in and pure-hybrid. It follows the reveal of the new Kia Soul EV – a crossover that gets a much more distinctive look.

However, there are some external changes up front courtesy of a unique closed tiger-nose grille that incorporates a charging socket, a revised front bumper and model-specific LED daytime running lights. Blue trim pieces also mark it out from other models.

This theme continues inside, where you’ll find an interior and layout that’s identical to other Niro models, with the exception of blue dash trim around the air vents, EV-specific centre console controls and driver information dials.

Kia says models fitted with the 64kWh lithium-ion battery pack will be capable of up to 282 miles of range, while a less expensive 39.2kWh battery will also be available, allowing for up to allows up to 193 miles (312 km).

Both models feature a single electric motor delivering 199bhp and 395Nm of torque allowing a swift 0-62mph time of just 7.5 seconds. Plugged into a 100 kW fast charger, it takes 54 minutes to recharge the e-Niro’s battery to 80%.

Regenerative braking tech also features, which works as part of the car’s Eco Driving Assistant System, providing drivers with intelligent guidance on how to drive more efficiently.

A battery heating system is also fitted to the e-Niro, designed to insulate and warm up the battery while the vehicle is plugged in, minimising the adverse effects of cold temperatures.

A host of safety tech is available, including forward collision warning, forward collision-avoidance, smart cruise control with Stop and Go function, Driver Attention Warning and Lane Keep Assist.

It’s set to hit the UK market in April 2019, but if you can’t wait, check out these hybrids and EVs you can lease right now for less than £350 per month.
