Perhaps the ultimate electric car

Best bits

  • Travels up to 282 miles between charges
  • Versatile enough to be your main family car
  • Loads of standard equipment

Not so great

  • High demand means you’ll pay strong money
  • Not as quirky as the BMW i3 or Honda E
  • Do you really need such a long electric range?

Overall verdict

"If the Kia e-Niro won’t fit in with your family life, no electric car will. It’s good to drive, has a very practical cabin and will travel more than 250 miles between charges. The dependability of the Kia badge (and the long warranty that it brings with it) should give you the confidence to make your first steps into electric car ownership, too. We’d like it to look a bit more exciting, if we’re being picky, but that’d only serve to increase demand even more."

Kia e-Niro parked

It’s all too easy to dismiss electric cars with the usual lazy excuses, but the Kia e-Niro addresses many of the common gripes you might have to make it one of the best electric cars going.


Let’s start with the range. The 64kWh Kia e-Niro can officially travel up to 282 miles between charges. That’s far enough for most of us to get to work and back, as well as popping to the shops or calling in on Grandma. It might not be as far as a petrol model, but how often do you drive more than 250 miles in a day without stopping?


Charging the e-Niro is as easy as topping up the battery in your mobile phone. It can be charged overnight using a 7kW home charger, while a motorway rapid charger will provide a healthy boost in the time it takes to buy a coffee and use the facilities.


It’s a practical choice, too. Four adults can fit inside the e-Niro fairly comfortably, while the boot is bigger than you’d find in the family favourite Nissan Qashqai. The cabin’s not going to win any awards for style, but it’s functional and feels well made.


So what about affordability? Well, you can pick up a nearly-new e-Niro for around £30,000. This’ll be the point that some people stop reading but, once you take fuel and maintenance savings into account, it starts to look like decent value for money. And, unlike some electric cars, the e-Niro’s battery is included - so you won’t have to pay a monthly rental fee.


It’s also absolutely loaded with kit. High-spec models come with seats that’ll warm you up in summer and cool you down in winter, while a 10.25-inch navigation system is standard across most of the range. All models come with a reversing camera to help with parking, as well as a long list of driver-assist features to help prevent a prang in your pride and joy.


Talking of which, the e-Niro is an extremely easy car to drive. It’s just like driving an automatic petrol car, except you don’t have to wait for the gearbox to catch up or for the revs to build. It’ll accelerate instantly with no noise, while the regenerative braking means it’ll slow down as soon as you lift off the throttle.


Chuck in a long warranty that’s transferable to subsequent owners, and the Kia e-Niro is an electric car that should be on the shortlist of the most sceptical of electric vehicle buyers. It’s a more practical proposition than a Renault Zoe, can travel further than a Honda e and is more affordable than a Tesla Model 3. There’s lots to like, we just wish it was wrapped up in a slightly more exciting package.

Is the Kia e-Niro right for you?

If you want an electric car with a long range and a spacious cabin, you should buy a Kia e-Niro. It’s one of the most convincing all-round electric car packages, with generous equipment levels and low running costs. Sure, it’s a bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for.

What’s the best Kia e-Niro model/engine to choose?

Don’t dismiss the cheapest models straight away. They might have a smaller battery but a 180-mile range will be plenty for many buyers, and there’s still plenty of standard equipment.


Most buyers will be lured towards the 64kWh e-Niro, though, and for good reason. It’s got a very usable real-life range, and all models are well-equipped. Look for a First Edition or 4+ model for desirable features like the premium system and ventilated seats.


What other cars are similar to the Kia e-Niro?

If you’re considering the Kia e-Niro, you should also look at the very similar Hyundai Kona Electric. It shares the electric gubbins with the e-Niro yet is slightly cheaper (but not as practical). The MG ZS EV is a strong (affordable) rival, as well as more conventional electric cars like the Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen e-Golf. If you don’t need the space, you could also look at the latest range of electric city cars including the Peugeot e-208, Honda e and Renault Zoe.
