2023 Kia Niro: new spy shots…

Today we finally get to see more of the next-generation Kia Niro. 
It seems like a pretty original design. Although looking a little bit more like a regular SUV than the current tall wagon shape. (Some current owners might not like that)
With all these new Ioniq models, the next Niro might be caught in a bad place, as Kia is now making a huge push for fully electric cars.
And the next Niro is not based on their new EV platform.
I think the most relevant model could be the PHEV. If they can drastically increase the electric range. 

The current model has a 26 miles electric range. But it starts at around $29 000 ($25 000 after current federal incentives). So it is really an inexpensive way to get a PHEV.

 If they double the EV range and keep the price down, the Niro might have a chance to attract people still afraid to jump into the EV world.

  1. Vince – It's time to lay off the daytime drinking. Yet more examples:

    …the Niro might have a CHANGE attracting people…

    And since when did Hyundai change it's spelling to HUNDAY??

    Your bad grammar and spelling are getting worse (not better).

  2. In reality the Kia EV6 starts at around 40K. The Niro will be cheaper because it is a hybrid. So how is the Niro in trouble?
