Following a massively triumphant launch period for the amazing e-Niro, Kia’s award winning all-electric car has once again topped the league and shown its industry leading credentials by winning the highly sought after ‘Eco Award’ at the Carwow Car of the Year awards 2019. This win adds to a magnitude of other awards won for the e-Niro this year, such as winning not only one but both What Car? and Driving Electric’s ‘Car of the Year’. It was also crowned winner of the ‘Affordable Electric Car of the Year’ at the Auto Express Awards and ‘Game-Changer’ at the Autocar Awards.
Alongside its other popular PHEV and hybrid versions, the Kia e-Niro impressed the Carwow judges with its impressive 282-mile range powered by a powerful 150kW pure electric powertrain with batteries that can be recharged to 80 per cent in as quick as just 54 minutes. Other enticing features which clinched the win for the e-Niro include the ever popular crossover styling and premium brand level of technology and safety features.
Commenting on the award win, Carwow's Editorial Director, Matt Watson has added “Kia has given the car market a huge shock with the electric e-Niro. It proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a spacious, practical electric car with great levels of tech and a battery that all but eliminates range anxiety”.
Awards are not the only area the e-Niro has been successful; global customer demand has been huge and specifically in the UK every single unit allocated to the country was sold within a month of the vehicle going on sale in April 2019. Customers are now looking forward to receiving their brand new e-Niros in 2020 where it will be joined by Kia’s second generation Soul EV in the all-electric product offering – further developing customer choice.
