    So I've posted a similar question on another thread but might be more relevant in this forum. E-Niro 4 has been ordered, now time to look into a Home Charger, does the one on offer from Kia do the Job or should I look into another brand ? Also does the Kia come with it's own charging lead...

    After a while with the car I am beginning to notice somethings which are missing compared to other vehicles and which you might expect or might miss in the e-Niro: Frunk OK, so I knew about this before taking delivery. I do miss it (I have only had one on an ICE car). Really very useful for...

    Hi all I have an e-Niro and the UVO app. I also have a home wall charger - but the wall charger is not smart (6 years old) and doesn’t have an app in itself to tell me how much electricity was used to charge the car (or how much it cost). Is there a way on UVO or on the car itself to figure...

    Christine entered all the map references for our address book - she is the one who can see - but then could not add the names and postal addresses. Have we done it back to front or something?

    I frequently have trouble entering a new address or destination in to the navigation system as only certain letters on the ‘keyboard’ are active - and often the letters I want are not there. I don’t understand why. Can anyone explain what I’m doing wrong please? I can’t seem to find any detailed...

    The Kia Niro EV has a weak point that has bothered me since purchasing the car on May 6th 2019, the reverse lights are useless. I found a solution and created this video to help others. If you have any questions, please let me know.

    I hope you and your family are healthy and safe during this time of confinement. For some reason I have not been receiving e-mail notifications from the forums I am part of. I just reviewed my settings and my spam filters so hopefully that is now fixed. If it took me a long time to reply I...

    I'm told that my e-niro is likely to be delivered in June/July ? but would like to look at the manual. Ive found a link on the KIA website to a 'Quick Reference Guide' to the 2019 e-niro but does anyone know where I can download the FULL owner's manual from? I've seen an American version on the...

    This thread has been started for posts about low-speed (type 2) charging which we started to get on the thread about rapid charging. I was the guilty party so I hope will make amends. The first was this one: e-Niro rapid charging. Then: e-Niro rapid charging. e-Niro rapid charging. e-Niro rapid...

    An interesting comparison of charging speeds, particularly when comparing km. per hour at 12:50 in the video:

    I can't seem to find a photo with adequate lighting that accurately shows the platinum graphite. Could anyone provide one? Thanks!

    Hey all, we test drove the e-niro on Sunday, and I must admit I'm in love. It is quite pricey for us though. Does anyone have advice on whether or not it is worth it? Someone on a leasing forum said my love affair with the car would be over in a week, but I don't think that's true. How are your...

    The e-Niro can import your choice of Points of Interest (POI) files to the navigation system. I did this today with the collection of National Trust properties downloaded from https://www.poigraves.uk As you will see there are various collections you can download, free of charge, along with...

    Can anyone recommend a supplier of rubber mats for the e-Niro? If so, please respond with manufacturer, retailer, cost and opinions.

    For anyone interested, here is a link to the e-Niro manual although it covers the US version of the car rather than the UK version. But, how different can they be (apart from the sunroof, ventilated seats, LED headlights, Rear Traffic Cross over Alert etc etc :D )

    With the first customer deliveries occurring soon, this thread is to share your e-Niro experience.

    I was just wondering what peoples backup plan if the E-Niro does not work out for them, for whatever reason. Say for example the PCP is too high or the 2nd wave orders are going to take too long. I have seen some mention of people having Model 3 reservations, others considering the MG eZS. I...

    Does anyone know what charging leads the e-Niro comes with as standard? The FC Show review shows a granny cable at 12:39. Is that standard and what about a Type 2 lead? @Marshall kia ipswich do you know?
  19. Kia Niro
    Is the e-Niro equipped with heated rear seats as I haven't been able to ascertain whither this is the case or not. Would be a nice feature if it does but not essential.

    The VW id Neo is beginning to look like quite an attractive proposition - if only, if only! Both myself and the OH love our Golf GTE but do wish that it had a bit more space, both Niro and Neo will/should have that. On the whole, I think that I prefer the car style driving position rather than...
