2020 Kia e-Niro
Result. I have a spare Mennekes cable. Kia UK confirmed in a tweet today that the U.K. model e Niro is 3 ph capable with the correct cable.
err the 2020 model has the ability to 3 phase charge with a Mode 3 cable which you can buy from Kia at an outrageous cost of £280.errr.... but it only has a 7.2kWh charger on board, so charging will be no faster.
yep that’s correct. With the 3 ph cable you can charge at 11kw instead of 7KW.
Woo! 😮 Thanks for pointing that out. Kia haven't widely advertised this. Makes me wonder what else is different in the 2020 model that's not advertised.yep that’s correct. With the 3 ph cable you can charge at 11kw instead of 7KW.
There’s a good thread on FB posted by an Irish guy in the Kia E Niro UK interest group.
