STILL WONDERING?

If you still have questions, you are not alone. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions to help you:

Q. What is the range of a Kia Electric Vehicle?

This depends on lots of different factors including the speed you drive at, how often you accelerate, the terrain, climate, geographical factors such as altitude, and the amount of cargo you’re transporting. The e-Niro and e-Soul are now capable of driving in excess of 450 km on a single charge. The Niro PHEV can drive in Full Electric Mode for a range of 55kms on a single charge, after which it switches to combined electric and petrol operation (HEV Mode). These values have been tested in the new WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedure) test cycle and converted back to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) in addition measured according to the RDE (Real Driving Emissions method).

Q. Where and How is an Electric Car Charged?

Your best option, if you have off-street parking, is to charge your electric car at home. It is convenient and surprisingly cost-effective. With government incentive schemes that reimburse up to €600, now is the time to get a home charger fitted. Kia have partnered with Wallbox, so visit wallbox.com for more info on the type of charging units available. Charging speeds vary depending on your particular unit set-up. You can also make use of public charging networks when out and about, with more and more street-side stations available. Simply plug in your car’s charging cable, activate the charge point (usually via either a contactless RFID card or mobile app) and leave the car to do the rest. Please note that you will have to apply to the ESB for a card to use the public charging network. On street charging is free at present but charges are planned for introduction this year.

Q. How Long Does it Take to Charge an Electric Car?

Considering the variety of electric cars and charging stations out there, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the time involved in EV charging can vary too. Overall charging time will depend on whether you have a mid-range or long range battery and the charging mode you use. The period of time an electric car’s battery will take to recharge is determined by how many kilowatts (kW) the charging station can provide and how many your car can accept. The higher the battery wattage, the slower your electric vehicle will be charged up. A mid-range Kia will charge from a domestic Wallbox (to 100%) in about 6 hours and to 80% at a public DC rapid charger in just 35 minutes. A long range e-Niro or e-Soul Kia will charge from a domestic Wallbox (to 100%) in about 9 hours and to 80% at a public rapid DC charger in just 55 minutes. A Kia Niro PHEV will give you up to 55km of electric drive for just under 3 hours of charging time.

Q. How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Car?

To calculate the cost of charging a High Voltage battery on any electric vehicle (PHEV or EV) using a home charger, you simply multiply the battery capacity by the cost of the electricity. Assuming the cost of electricity to be €0.17 per kWh, here's what it would cost to charge the batteries that are used in both the e-Niro and e-Soul, and also the cost per 100km driving for the e-Niro, fitted with these batteries, based on the WLTP average range figures. The 64 kWh battery has an average range 455km, and the 39.2 kWh battery has an average range of 289km. On the long range battery: 64kWh (64 X €0.17) = €10.88 to fully charge = €2.39 per 100km (€10.80 /455km *100km). For the mid-range battery of: 39.2kWh (39.2 X €0.17) = €6.66 to fully charge = €2.30 per 100km (€6.66 / 289km *100km). A Niro PHEV will give you up to 55km of full electric drive for around €1.51 (8.9kWh X €0.17)

Q. How Much Does a Kia Electric Vehicle Cost?

Kia currently has 3 Niro models costing as follows: Niro PHEV €31,995, e-Niro Mid-Range €33,495 and e-Niro Long-Range €37,495. Both e-Soul models, K2 and K3, are long range costing €35,995 and €37,495 respectively. The Niro PHEV price includes VRT relief of €2,500 and the SEAI grant of €5,000. e-Soul and e-Niro prices include VRT relief of €5,000 and €5,000 SEAI grant.

Q. What's a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) and How Does it Work?

A plug in hybrid is very similar to a standard hybrid vehicle (HEV) but with one major difference: A standard hybrid car doesn’t have a plug for topping up its battery. A HEV charges mainly by using the vehicles combustion engine. A smart regeneration system also recuperates some energy whenever you brake or coast, reaching maximum regeneration in downhill situations The plug-in hybrid Niro works just like the standard hybrid, except it has a larger battery and gives you the additional option of charging it from an electric outlet. This can extend its electric range up to 55 kilometers and give low mileage drivers the opportunity of doing all, or a significant amount of , their day to day driving in full EV mode. When the battery is low it simply changes to Hybrid mode and “self-charges” in the same way.

Q. Why Buy a Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)?

There are many reasons. The Niro PHEV is ideal for those whose Monday to Friday mileage is low but who also want the flexibility of making long journeys at the weekend. It also comes with generous incentives including VRT relief of €2500 and an SEAI grant of up to €5,000, up to €600 home charger grant and reduced motorway toll. The Niro PHEV is also very economical in HEV mode and remember the battery can be charged at a public charging station giving drivers a “free“ 55km to continue their journey. And lastly, the Niro PHEV is a generously equipped motor car, with a unique 7-year warranty, and many comfort and safety features as standard
