Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Did you know that you have two options for charging your Kia Niro EV? You can either use a standard wall outlet or a charging station. It's important to note that when travelling, a wall outlet won't provide enough power, so you'll need to use a charging station. The speed at which your EV charges depends on the type of charging station you use and your EV's maximum charging capacity. A list of all available charging options for the Kia Niro EV is provided in the table below, including estimated charging times to go from empty to full battery.


Charging an Electric Vehicle (EV) in Europe can differ from one country to another. Some countries utilize a 1-phase connection to the power grid, while others use a 3-phase connection. The table below displays all of the charging options available for a Kia Niro EV. However, some countries may not have all of the charging modes listed. Thus, it is advisable to check with your local electric vehicle charging networks for the available options.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Fast charging is a crucial element that allows you to cover a longer distance during your journey by providing an optimal amount of range in the shortest possible time. Nevertheless, as the battery approaches 80% state-of-charge, the charging power considerably reduces. As a result, a typical fast charge seldom exceeds 80% SoC. The charging speed of an electric vehicle relies on both the charging station utilized and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table presented below provides a comprehensive outline of fast charging for the Kia Niro EV.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
