Kia Niro electric SUV Showcased At Auto Expo 2020

Kia has showcased its Niro electric SUV at the Auto Expo 2020. If it goes on sale in India, it could be priced a bit higher than the Hyundai Kona at around Rs. 30.0 lakh. That’s because it’s a little bigger than the Kona and it also has a larger battery pack - 64kWh vs 39.2kWh in the Kona. It is a little longer than the Kona but has a considerably longer wheelbase.
