The in-demand Kia e-Niro has been refreshed for 2020 with the old First Edition model replaced by a new ‘4’ grade. Prices start from £34,495 including the Plug-in Car Grant (the list price, which nobody pays, is £37,995).

Kia has already updated the Niro range; now it’s time for the all-electric e-Niro to benefit. Highlights include a crisp new 10.25-inch touchscreen sat nav system with built-in telematics.

Heated black leather front seats are standard, as is a premium JBL sound system and wireless smartphone charging. There’s also climate control and smart cruise control.

With a 64 kWh battery, the e-Niro has an official range of 282 miles. It’s also capable of 0-62 mph in a sprightly 7.5 seconds. Power is ample at 201hp, and it has a diesel-like pulling power figure of 291lb ft.

The multi-award-winning e-Niro famously sold out as soon as it went on sale this time last year, and Kia dealers have been battling ever since to secure stocks.

The firm actually closed the order books for 2019 deliveries; the introduction of the new e-Niro 4 in early 2020 will see them finally open again.

A Kia spokesman told Motoring Research the firm is much more confident of being able to get sufficient stocks next year, particularly in the second half of 2020.
