Kia introduces upgrades and supply increase for e-Niro ahead of 2020

Kia are planning an update for the e-Niro electric SUV for 2020 and are promising that the current very limited availability will be solved.

According to the South Korean firm, a 3,000-strong waiting list for the e-Niro will be cleared within the first six months of 2020 - with plans to increase the number of examples arriving following that.

For 2020, the e-Niro will be upgraded with new LED headlights and a revamped interior featuring a 10.25in touchscreen, ambient lighting and a new telematics system. Pricing has been bumped up to £34,495 after the government plug-in auto grant as a result of its new equipment, having previously been offered at £32,995 following the grant.

There is also a less powerful e-Niro with a 39.2kWh battery pack and a smaller 133bhp motor, but even the range-topping Kia e-Niro First Edition - complete with the big battery and motor - came in at a reasonable £32,995 when it arrived on sale this time past year. In addition, deliveries for the all-new Soul EV are due to commence in April.

The e-Niro went on sale in Britain earlier this year, but demand for the vehicle greatly outstripped supply, with the entire United Kingdom provision selling out within weeks.

"As we enter 2020 with the Soul EV and e-Niro, we and our 190-strong dealer network are ready to meet customer demand for all-electric cars".
