Niro EV & PHEV

Looking forward to seeing the pricing for these models later this year and next. Rebates will play a large role. Lots of research to do in the meantime.

Thanks to njerald for spotting this article. Hopefully we might see the PHEV hit North America before the end of the year.

Good spotting conwelpic. Still keeping my eye on this guy but Hyundai appears fairly close to releasing something similar. Will be interesting to see the EV range for both vehicles.

Pricing seems in line with the regular hybrid which is encouraging. Wished the battery pack provided a bit more range on it's own but still a car definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Pricing is not announced, don't go by Korean pricing. I'm guessing it will be a minimum of $2,000 more than a comparable Hybrid model which is way too much for me.

Just compare the Hybrid and PHEV Kia and Hyundai prices...................
