In early 2016, car manufacturer Kia pulled the curtain on a new middle-class crossover: the Kia Niro Hybrid. This first version is equipped with a hybrid engine, which means that the electric and combustion engine work together and thus ensure lower consumption. So it was not yet possible to drive fully electric with this car. In 2018, the car manufacturer did come with an electric variant, called the Kia e-Niro. This allows you to drive the Niro fully electrically, and thus enjoy the many space and conveniences that the practical crossover offers in the most sustainable way possible.
With the Plug-In Hybrid variant that was launched at the end of 2017, Kia also offers an intermediate variant. In broad terms, this model is the same as the original hybrid variant, with the same 1.6-liter petrol engine and 6-speed automatic gearbox, but with a larger battery and a more powerful electric motor. This makes it possible to drive fully electrically with the plug-in hybrid version for longer, and at higher speeds.
Specifications of the Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid
The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid delivers a total system power of 104 kW. This is equal to 141 horsepower. The practical cross-ver has a 265 Nm torque and is provided and is driven by the front wheels. The car is equipped with a petrol engine and an electric motor that work together smartly to reduce energy consumption and thus also save fuel. This system ensures minimal emissions. Especially when you talk about driving in the city where you brake and accelerate a lot.
Furthermore, this smart system achieves an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 11 seconds and a top speed of 172 km / h. The electric range of the car is about 35 km. This is not much, but more than enough to work well with the petrol engine. Incidentally, energy is generated again while driving.
Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid charging cables
The Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid has a Mennekes connection for the charging cable and with that you need a Type 2 charging cable for charging this car. The battery has a capacity of 8.9 kWh. The charging time of an electric car depends on the following 3 factors: the capacity of the charging station, the amount of current that the charging cable can carry (that is 16 or 32 amps) and the limit with which the car can charge itself. The Niro Hybrid can do that with a maximum power of 3.3 kW. So you can use a Type 2, 1-phase charging cable of 16A for charging this car. Do you need a Type 2 1-phase charging cable of 16A?

Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid charging stations
Because the maximum charging capacity of this Kia Niro is 3.3 kW, it is wise to purchase a 1-phase 16A charging station. With a standard power of 1 x 3.7 kW, this station can meet the maximum power of the car. In combination with the Type 2, 1-phase 16A charging cable, the 1-phase 16A charging station is the right charging station for your Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid.
To avoid that you cannot charge your Kia Niro because you come across a charging station that has a fixed charging cable with a Type 1 connection, purchase a handy and easily stowable adapter. A Type 1 plug does not fit on a Type 2 socket, and vice versa.
To ensure that you can connect this to each other, place an adapter between the mismatched contact and the plug. This is how you translate the Type 1 plug into a Type 2 socket. The use of an adapter can in some cases affect the charging speed.
