Revered science and technology magazine Popular Mechanics has named Kia Niro EV as the 'Car of the Year'. For the selection, they took all aspects of the vehicle into consideration, including performance, practicality, and packaging. It appears the car really impressed the magazine editors on all three fronts.
According to Ezra Dyer, the automotive editor at Popular Mechanics, he and his team picked the Kia Niro EV as the Car of the Year precisely because even if the vehicle weren’t an electric car, it would still be “appealing”. This speaks volumes on the high quality that the vehicle offers. Dyer adds that the electric car provides customers with all the “usual EV benefits” without having to sacrifice much, as with many electric vehicles.
Kia Niro EV is “smooth, quick and quiet” and offers a great range while being available at an affordable price, Dyer says. The accolades for the EV do not stop here. The automotive editor continues to call the car a 'preview of the near future', claiming that Kia Niro EV has set a standard for the norm of future cars.
As per the magazine, the vehicle has impeccable style, design, and practicality and performance. Whether you are taking it out for your everyday ride or if you're on the highway for a long road trip, the EV does not do not provide comfort.
The Kia Niro EV, as seen, has many positive features that easily make it the best car out there in the EV market. It’s a great choice for those who are eager to buy their first electric vehicle, and those who've already experienced EVs. Its style, versatility, and comfort give it an edge over its competitors.
Kia Motors America (KMA) COO and executive vice president, Michael Cole, says that the company is proud of the news and that being selected as Car of the Year by a highly reputed publication is a “momentous event”. He adds that this reward is a validation of their efforts to provide customers with the best vehicles.
