The all-new Kia Niro will be launched on November 25 at Seoul Mobility Show. The Kia Niro is expected to be based on the 2019 HabaNiro Concept with similar exterior design while the interior and infotainment system will be similar to the Kia EV6. The Kia Niro is expected to go on sale in the U.S. sometime in 2023.

Kia has teased the images of the upcoming Kia Niro based on the 2019 HabaNiro Concept. The HabaNiro Concept was an all-electric, AWD four-seater car with an all-electric range of 300 miles, butterfly wing doors, and many more advanced features. The all-new Kia Niro is redesigned under the ‘Opposites United Design Philosophy’ and is a part of Kia’s commitment to sustainability. 

The new design philosophy is based on five pillars: Bold for Nature, Joy for Reason, Power to Progress, Technology for Life, and Tension for Serenity. Even the upcoming 2022 Kia EV6 follows the same design principles and is based on Hyundai’s e-GMP platform shared with Hyundai Ioniq 5 as well. 

Kia claims that the all-new Niro is inspired by the HabaNiro Concept and will feature the same adventure-ready styling with a clean and high-tech two-tone body. The asymmetric dashboard of the Kia Niro features different horizontal and diagonal forms inspired by Opposites United design cues and stays true to its ‘Joy for reason’ ethos with bold, functional, practical, and environment-friendly construction. 

The all-new Kia Niro, like the current Niro, is speculated to come with different powertrain options consisting of all-electric power, regular hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid option. With many powertrains on offer, the new Kia Niro might not be using the e-GMP platform that is dedicated to battery electric vehicles only. The teaser images show that the Kia Niro will come with a two-spoke steering wheel and the infotainment system will be heavily inspired by the 2022 Kia EV6

The new Kia Niro might borrow the powertrain components and battery pack from the Kia EV6 for its all-electric model. So, the all-electric Kia Niro might offer up to 300 miles of range. The conventional gas-powered version of the Kia Niro might replace the 1.6-liter engine of the current Kia Niro, or add a 2.0-liter inline-6 engine from the Kia Seltos.

More details about the technical specifications, design, interior technology, and release date will be available after the debut at the Seoul Mobility Show on November 25. We are excited to see the all-new Kia Niro in its new production version at the event, are you?
