Auto123 puts the Kia Niro EV to the long-term test. Today, part 9.
In my last chapter, I promised my young friend Emiliano that I would test and carefully note the effects of winter on our Kia Niro EV.
We already know that highway driving is not kind to the range of any EV. It eats up kilometres far faster than when you’re cruising around town in your EV. Wind, terrain, lack of braking and many other factors make range melt away like the memory of the Habs playing in a Stanley Cup final.
But there’s another mortal enemy of vehicle range. And we’re smack in the middle of it right now. No, not a pandemic surge. I mean cold temperatures.
