As part of their mission to increase their average fuel economy, Kia made the subcompact Niro crossover a hybrid by default and now they have added a bigger battery pack and an electric motor so you can drive electric only for up t0 26 miles. (As long as you don’t need to heat the cabin, more on that in the video). This makes the Niro PHEV arguably Kia’s most efficient vehicle for the average commuter. In an impressive move Kia also managed to package the battery under the rear seats so the Niro PHEV doesn’t lose any cargo capacity vs the standard hybrid model.
