Kia has continued to push forward with its development of efficient hybrid technology that manages to save drivers money on fuel costs over the long haul while also retaining the kind of style and attitude that Kia owners have come to know and love. That tradition continues with the 2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid in the Tampa Bay area. The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid differs from the standard Niro by way of being a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and is able to run on all-electric power for a period after being plugged in. If you do opt to take a spin using just electric power, you’ll have a range of about 26 miles on a single charge.
The 2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is available in three trims: LXS, EX, and EX Premium. Each one offers its own unique take on the Niro name, and you’ll have a chance to select the one that fits your tastes and your budget.
You want a hybrid because of how much money it can save you with its remarkable fuel efficiency, and the 2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid delivers. It serves up 46 miles per gallon on combined roads and on electric power it gives you 105 combined MPGe, the electric equivalent of traditional miles per gallon fuel economy. This is thanks to its efficient powertrain consisting of a 1.6-liter GDI engine with an electric motor and an 8.9 kWh lithium-ion polymer hybrid battery. This system still produces a net of 139 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft of torque, so you don’t need to be sacrificing power for efficiency.
When you climb inside, you’ll find a roomy interior to the tune of 100.9 cubic feet of total passenger volume. You’ll also have a maximum cargo volume of up to 63.2 cubic feet at your disposal if you fold the rear seats. Up front, plenty of technology features are within reach for your convenience, information, and entertainment.
An eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functionality comes standard, but that can be upgraded to an available 10.25-inch system in the EX Premium model. You can also enjoy the benefits of UVO link, Bluetooth® wireless technology with voice recognition, a front USB charger, an available wireless phone charger, and more.
