No emission, no problem

If you’re under the impression that making a move to zero-emissions driving is too expensive because you need something roomy, and big electric vehicles (EVs) cost too much, then it’s about time you took a look at the 2022 Kia Niro EV. The Niro EV is a full-electric version of the Niro that was previously a hybrid-only model, but this is a fully electric compact crossover SUV that’s roomier and more affordable than you might have imagined. If you’re interested in reducing your emissions to zero while driving around Gainesville, Buford, Cumming, Duluth, Atlanta, and Athens, the Kia Niro EV is the perfect entry into the world of electric mobility.


There are two very generously-equipped versions of the 2022 Kia Niro EV: the entry-level EX and the range-topping EX Premium. The exterior styling is attractive, but it doesn’t shout about being an EV and, therefore, something “different.” The only thing about the styling that suggests the Niro isn’t an internal combustion engine vehicle is the fake grille on the front fascia.

The interior of the Niro EV is attractive, modern, and an absolute masterclass in making the absolute most of available space. Because there’s no need for a transmission tunnel, the floor is flat inside the Niro EV, and the cargo floor is also nice and low for easy loading and unloading. The rear seats also flip forward to create more cargo space, so the Niro EV is more flexible and versatile than many rivals with similar exterior dimensions.

Powertrain and performance

2022 Kia Niro EV powertrains and performance

The Niro EV powertrain consists of a permanent magnet AC synchronous motor and a 64-kWh battery that contributes to quiet, quick acceleration, an enjoyable overall driving experience, and an impressive driving range on a full charge of the Kia’s battery. The system produces a very healthy 201 horsepower and 291 lb.-ft. of torque; numbers rarely associated with compact crossover SUVs without looking towards much more costly performance models.

Those impressive output figures result in an equally impressive performance, with the 2022 Kia Niro EV capable of getting you from a standing start to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds. The all-important range on a single full charge of the Niro EV’s battery is an EPA-estimated 239 miles. A fully depleted battery can be recharged to 80% of its capacity using a DC fast charger in around an hour, so the Niro EV is going a long way towards making range anxiety a thing of the past.

Features and equipment

Kia has built on what was already a pretty generous list of standard features for the 2022 model year of the Niro EV. Standard equipment for the entry-level EX model includes a giant 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, and a premium Harman Kardon audio system. Other notable features include 17-inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, rear-seat climate-control ducts, and heated front seats.

Stepping up to the EX Premium adds the likes of a power sunroof, ventilated front seats, SynTex seating materials w/ Blue accents, adjustable mood lighting, and rear parking sensors.
