As far as cars go, environmentally-friendly usually means less powerful, less fun. It doesn't need to be that way, though.
The Kia e-Niro is a bit of a game-changer. It's the Electric Vehicle (EV) that provides all the great features of an SUV with the efficiency of an eco-friendly vehicle - for those who want to make ethical choices without compromising on the driving experience.
With a 64kWh lithium-ion battery powering a 201bhp electric motor, the e-Niro can go from 0-62mph in 7.5 seconds with a top speed of 105mph.
In terms of charging times, you'll need about 56 minutes to get the e-Niro up to 80% capacity.
And it's one of the best in class when it comes to range, offering just short of 300 miles.
Innovation and technology are at the heart of the e-Niro's driving experience, too. The 8" navigation touchscreen in the cockpit is designed to make your life easier, giving you vital information and eliminating distractions simultaneously.
There are plenty of features to keep you and your passengers safe. The Advanced Driver Assistance Pack, for instance, helps you to keep a safe distance from other vehicles and pedestrians, lets you cruise at a predefined speed or alerts you when you stray out of your lane, allowing you to focus solely on the road ahead.
Away from the road itself, the e-Niro's 382 litres of luggage capacity - with all seats in place - makes it the perfect car for family getaways, big shopping trips or those days when you need the e-Niro to double up as the team coach. With the rear seats folding 60:40, there's even more flexibility for extra more storage space if you need it.
Being so eco-friendly and efficient, you'd think there might be a compromise when it comes to style. But with a graceful outline and a powerful rear profile, the Kia e-Niro boasts striking visuals to compliment its impressive functionality.
