Kia Niro EV takes top honors in the J.D. Power 2022 “Electric Vehicle Experience Ownership Study”
The Kia Niro EV has taken top honors in the J.D. Power 2022 Electric Vehicle Experience (EVX) Ownership Study mass market category for a second year in a row.
The U.S. EVX Ownership Study sets the standard for benchmarking satisfaction with the critical attributes that affect the EV ownership experience. The overall EVX ownership index score measures electric vehicle owners’ satisfaction (on a 1,000-point scale) in premium and mass-market segments across 10 factors:
- Safety and technology features
- Interior and exterior styling
- Ease of charging at home
- Service experience
- Driving enjoyment
- Cost of ownership
- Battery range
- Vehicle quality and reliability
- Accuracy of stated battery range
- Availability of public charging stations
“EVs are becoming an increasingly more important part of the automotive landscape. With the Niro EV receiving the award for highest ownership satisfaction in the mass market battery electric vehicle segment for a second consecutive year, Kia has demonstrated its ability to exceed EV owner expectations,” said Brent Gruber, Senior Director, Global Automotive at J.D. Power.
The all-new EV6 joined the Niro in Kia’s expanding, all-electric lineup; however, Kia’s future plans do not stop at these two all-electric crossovers. Kia is fully commitment to electrification. The automaker has promised to deliver 14 new EVs globally across multiple vehicle segments by 2027, under the company’s transformative ‘Plan S’ strategy.
The Kia Niro EV opens a world of possibilities for drivers who are drawn toward popular crossovers but also want the benefits electric vehicles offer. With 291 lb.-ft. of torque and four drive modes, the Niro EV’s robust electric powertrain gets drivers where they need to go – quickly – while enjoying advanced technology and connectivity in a stylish package that fits every lifestyle.
