The 2023 Kia Niro has been showcased at the 2022 New York Auto Show. The company confirmed that hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric versions of the car would go on sale in North America this summer. All of the vehicles have performance improvements based on their 2022 equivalents.

Kia has debuted the North American edition of its 2023 Niro. The vehicle will be available in three versions: a hybrid (HEV), a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and a battery electric vehicle (BEV). Kia claims that the fully electric car will have a 253 mile (~407 km) range, slightly longer than the 239 miles (~385 km) range of the 2022 model.

The BEV will have a 201 hp motor and a 64.8 kWh battery. The car is expected to have fast charging capabilities, enabling it to charge from 10% to 80% in 45 minutes. The standard hybrid has a 139 hp powertrain. The 1.6 L gas four-cylinder engine should deliver 53 mpg, three mpg better than the equivalent 2022 Niro. The car is expected to have a 588 mile (~946 km) range.

The plug-in hybrid uses the same engine as the HEV with an additional 11.1 kWh battery and a more powerful motor. Kia stated that the PHEV would be able to travel on solely electric power for up to 33 miles (~53 km) on a single charge. This is a 25% improvement on the 2022 edition, with a charging time of three hours.

All versions are slightly larger than the older model, with a 2.5-in (~6 cm) longer body. Inside the vehicle is a 10.3-in (~26 cm) touchscreen and digital gauge cluster. The cars will also have driver-assistance features, including blind-spot monitoring and pedestrian detection. Kia confirmed that all variants of the 2023 Niro would go on sale in North America this summer.
