  1. 11kwh battery. I guess it’s an ok starter vehicle. Hopefully we see higher capacity batteries in PHEV soon. The volt had 18 kWh when it was discontinued in 2019. 4 years later we see vehicles with nearly half of the capacity. Not to mention, this vehicle is also larger so efficiency may be less due to weight.

  2. No tax credit. no deal.

    Love the idea of more PHEVs, but this isnt competitive given you will be able to buy a Bolt for less than $30k and potentially get a $7500 tax credit come Jan 1st.

    The battery is a little smaller than I would have liked as well, but 33 miles is a decent useable range. This would really be a good deal with the tax credit…. I hate than Manchin fucked everything up. I love my country and of course support domestic manufacturing, but we cant leave our trade partners out in the cold when they make a 6 billion dollar investment to build cars here (new Georgia EV plant) and provide jobs for 10k + people…. Hopefully Biden works something out with South Korea.

  3. So assuming the new Niro EV starts at about $10,000 above the Niro PHEV like it did in the previous generation, that would make the new Niro EV potentially more expensive than the larger EV6?

    What exactly am I missing here?

  4. Agreed with others here. I was looking forward to the PHEV and EV versions and I knew the pricing was going to be crucial. I am afraid this price is just a few thousand too high and is hard to justify in the current market. There are better options at the price point or very close to it.

    Let’s see the EV pricing but if it starts over 40k (which is likely since the PHEV starts around 35k and the price difference in previous models was 10k), it would be just an absolute no-go. Honestly, even if it still had the tax credit it would be a tough sell. Without the credit, it’s just way too overpriced for what it is.

  5. Base ioni5 or bolt or id4. Spend some more and never have to go to gas station. Full tank every time you leave the house. No noisy or smelly engine. Smoother ride and acceleration. No ice maintenance. Change the brakes and oil once per 100k miles. No worrying about stale gas in tank. Way more useable interior space because of better bev packaging. Higher resale value. Way cheaper energy costs

    Easy choice unless you road trip a lot.

  6. I’m a motoring journalist. I’ve driven the plug-in Niro twice now. The first time I got around 40 electric miles, including a short stretch of motorway driving (maybe five miles at 70mph). It’s got enough electric range for most daily commutes. Pretty decent car too.

  7. My only complaint with KIA and Hyundai is that their hybrid systems do almost nothing for mileage. Maybe 2-5 mpg increase in efficiency in exchange for thousands of dollars in MSRP. And if it ever breaks out of warranty good luck finding an independent mechanic that wants to buy all the one off tools needed to repair hybrids. Oh and the parts themselves are more expensive and more rare than stuff for the ICE version of the same car. There’s literally 0 upside unless you really really just want a hybrid and don’t consider anything else that goes along with owning one.

  8. I wish range extenders were the norm over hybrids. Pure EVs tugging along efficient generators to top off the battery reduces a ton of electromechanical complexity. The average driver in the U.S. goes 40 miles a day. A small battery can manage the vast majority of days for most drivers with a range extender for the days in between. There are cool options out there like one stroke engines and even turbines https://youtu.be/VQBJu-kTu0E.

  9. Someone help me out here, because there is actually somethings I’m not quite getting with regards to Hybrids and PHEV’s.

    One quick question about Hybrids, where one merely puts gas in the tank and they get 50+ MPG: Because they are so efficient, do they also suffer lower range on the highway like pure BEV’s?

    OK, so now my question about PHEV’s: Do they use the electricity to increase the miles per gallon as the car is driving, or do they just run in electric only mode until the battery drops below a certain point and then it’s just a heavy hybrid? Or can you flip a switch and do either?

    Thanks in advance for clearing that up for me.
