With widespread concern about climate change and the effort to lower emissions, Americans are increasingly interested in alternative fuel vehicles. Automakers worldwide are hard at work creating and expanding their lineups to include hybrids and fully electric cars, and Kia is no different. Kia Motors has always been an innovator in the automotive world, and the company already has many alternatives to traditional gasoline-powered cars. One of these is the Kia Niro.
The 2023 Niro was completely revamped, which includes a hybrid, plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and all-electric (EV) models that promote a healthier planet and a fatter wallet for you. Because it was so recently remodeled, we expect no changes for the 2024 Kia Niro in Albuquerque, NM. Exterior updates included the aerodynamic “tiger-nose” grille, daytime running lights, boomerang-shaped LED taillights, and a more aesthetic appearance overall. A more spacious cabin, first-rate technology, and comfort amenities round out the interior improvements.
If you’re a newcomer to the world of electric vehicles, the Niro Hybrid is an excellent place to start. It’s powered by a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) paired with one or more electric motors, depending on the trim level, making it self-charging. It’s a step in the direction of going electric. Still, it allows you to continue your routine driving habits without worrying of locating the nearest charging station while traveling. Some notable specs and features include the following:
If the ability to switch to fully-electric power whenever you want sounds appealing, consider the Niro PHEV. You can drive on battery power only, but you’ll still have the convenience of an ICE when you cannot plug in to charge the battery (because you’re too far away from a charging station). This version has more battery capacity than standard hybrid vehicles and boasts a fuel efficiency rating of up to 105 MPGe. Other impressive features include the following:
Living in the Albuquerque area means you can access plenty of charging stations, especially in the metropolitan area. Owning the fully-electric 2024 Kia Niro in Albuquerque, NM means you can say goodbye to routine oil changes and the ever-increasing price of gasoline (for which your wallet will thank you). This great little SUV offers a projected electric range of 253 miles before recharging and may include up to $7500 in federal tax credits. Other perks you’ll enjoy are:
A bonus of hybrid and electric vehicles is the lowered center of gravity that helps keep you safe on the road.
