DOUBLE WIN FOR KIA AT WHAT CAR? ELECTRIC CAR AWARDS
Kia has won two awards at the first ever What Car? Electric Car Awards. The already multi-award winning e-Niro won Best Electric small SUV, while the Niro PHEV was awarded Best Hybrid small SUV, both available at Ken Brown Kia. The brand was also nominated for five other awards with the Soul EV, XCeed PHEV and Ceed Sportswagon PHEV all making the shortlist.
A past What Car? Car of the Year winner, the e-Niro is capable of up to 282 miles of electric range from a full charge and offers an excellent specification with modern convenience and safety features. Now in 2020, in an even more competitive category, the e-Niro continues its class leading streak, winning the awards Best Electric small SUV and being praised by What Car? judges saying “The e-Niro has the best blend of space, usability and affordability.”
Updated in 2019, the Niro PHEV delivers the high efficiency and low running costs of a petrol-electric car with the style, practicality and desirability of a compact crossover. The model delivers an electric range of 30 miles and fuel economy of up to 201.8mpg. What Car? praised the plug-in hybrid for its good value for money, long list of standard equipment and interior quality.
Commenting on the success in the awards, Jason Parker, Dealer Principal at Ken Brown Kia said: “We have definitely seen an increase in demand for electrified vehicles in the Essex and Hertfordshire, which has been largely influenced by the variety of eco-cars now available on the market. Having five different Kia models recognised in the awards, with two winning their categories goes to show that Kia produce great electric cars, no matter the style or powertrain.”
