South Korea Availabilty
July 2018 – In South Korea, the compay received more than 5000 pre-orders and the Kia Niro EV is now on sale in South Korea.
Kia has confirmed the e-Niro will be available at the end of 2018 in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe.
The Niro Plug-in Hybrid starts at £25,162.50 in the UK so it is likely the Niro EV willbe around £30,000
The Kia Niro EV officially went on sale in the USA at the end of April 2019. Pricing was higher than anticipated, with the base model e-Niro EX starting at $39,495 with a destination charge. That makes it $1500 USD more than the Hyundai Kona EV.
Availability is limited to 12 states – with no specifics on if that will expand nation wide in the future. The Niro EV is available in California, all of the other ZEV states except Vermont and Maine, and also in Georgia, Texas, Washington, and Hawaii according to Car and Driver
North America needs to wait until the first quarter of 2019 before the Niro EV will go on sale.
Price has not been released yet, but based on the Kona Electric pricing, the Niro EV should be around the low to mid $30,000 range.
In October 2018, Kia announced the e-Niro will start at 377,400 NOK (€39,590 / $44,940), but delivery will be limited to around 2000 units to Norway in 2019. Norway is one of the 4 prioritized markets: Norway, Netherlands, France, and Sweden.
