** Average fuel and maintenance expenses for traditional Internal Combustion Engines are calculated based on an average of 15,000 miles travelled per year, using an average combined fuel economy for model year 2019 vehicles of 24.9 miles per gallon, and an average per gallon price of $2.18 for regular unleaded gasoline. Maintenance costs are an estimation of oil changes at 5,000 mile intervals averaging $50 per service. Electric Vehicle (EV) average expenses are based upon the 2020 Kia Niro EV, including its 30/kWh per 100 miles, an average of 15,000 miles per year and an average electricity cost of $0.13 kWh.
***Kia engaged with AMCI Testing (an independent automotive research firm) to gauge the fully-charged range of a 2020 Niro EV EX. AMCI Testing’s range testing consisted of two different scenarios: Real-World City/Highway Cycle. For this test, the vehicle was driven on a 48.8-mile city/highway cycle route in Southern California. The drive mode was set to ECO; coast energy was set to Level 3; and the HVAC mode was set to ECO at 74 degrees. Additional testing details and protocols are available through AMCI Testing.Result: 293-mile all-electric range (54 miles more than the advertised 239 EPA-estimated range) Real-World City Cycle. For this test, the vehicle was driven on a 71.2-mile city cycle route in Southern California. The drive mode was set to ECO+; coast energy was set to Level 3; and the HVAC mode was set to A/C Off and Fan Manual. Additional testing details and protocols are available through AMCI Testing.Result: 317-mile all-electric range (78 miles more than the advertised 239 EPA-estimated range).Actual Niro EV range will vary depending on the conditions described above, including aging of the vehicle battery. Niro EV battery is warranted for 10-years or 100K miles and is guaranteed to retain 70% of the battery’s original capacity.
