Kia Niro EV & PHEV Charging Guide
Charging options for the new Kia Niro EV.
From factory the Niro comes with a Type 2 10A charger that will charge at 8 amps. This can take around 7 hours to provide a full charge for the PHEV or 23 hours for the full EV. On a full charge you can expect around 63km range for the PHEV and 460km range for the EV. There are a couple of options for charging the Niro faster at home. The Niro comes with the Kia connect app so there is no need for a smart charger as the scheduling can be done via the app.
- The 16A T2 charger with the Blue Cee plug. Great if you have a 16A socket. If you don’t have one get a quote from your local electrician to have one installed however the install costs are similar to having a wall charger installed so that is the better option.
- The other faster option are the wall mount chargers that can be mounted outside such as the 32A Wall mounted charger
Note: The PHEV is limited to charging at 16A so the wall chargers will only supply 16A to the car.
