    Hey, spec wise it is a Bolt EV! :)

    That is great that it is launching this year. This is the perfect size vehicle if you ask me.

    Hopefully Kia ups production and the Niro vastly outperforms previous Kia/Hyundai plug-ins.

    Kia probably benchmark the Bolt. The key difference is charging speed and adaptive cruise control. On road trips, the difference will become apparent.

    Kia targeted 240 miles. Pretty close. This 238 miles is way different than the Bolt 238 miles. With heat pump and fast charging speed, the range difference is two folds.

    The German magazine did the test. The best performance came from Hyundai. The worst performance came from Bolt.

    Niro EV will come with 40kWh and 64kWh version. The same with Kona EV.

    No longer range Ioniq BEV and Soul EV.

    Do you have a source for that?

    I went for a test drive in the 2018 Kia Niro '3' Hybrid model today and was nicely surprised at this compact crossover SUV. I really liked it.

    The new article says the Ioniq will have more range. Does anyone here know how to read Korean? I've been using Google translation and sometimes it flakes out.

    Thanks for the link. That's awesome!
    I can struggle through a few languages, but Korean isn't one of them. Luckily, I'm fluent in Google Translate.
    Do you read Korean?

    No, I'm using Google translation.

    I have setup a table with translation and Google search through news article. Took me a year to set up all the keywords. I got a huge database of words that I use to search.

    Hyundai = 현대
    Kia = 기아
    Niro EV = 니로EV
    Kona EV = 코나EV
    Bolt EV = 볼트EV
    Ioniq = 아이오닉
