Kia Motors Pakistan has been teasing two new vehicles on its Instagram and other social media channel. The eagle-eyed car enthusiasts have recognized the two vehicles as the much-awaited Kia Stinger and Niro EV, two vehicles that have been on the radar of Pakistan car enthusiasts for years now.

The first mention of the vehicles was made back in 2020 when the brand announced the name of these vehicles as well as Kia Sorento during a marketing campaign. Now, after almost 3 years, the other two vehicles will be making their way to the Pakistani market with an “exclusive premiere.”

Here is what you need to know about both vehicles.

Kia Niro EV

It is expected that the Niro EV will come with two powertrain options. These are:

  • A single electric motor powertrain that delivers 130 Horsepower and 394 Nm of torque with front wheel drive.
  • A single electric motor powertrain that delivers 201 horsepower with 394 Nm of torque with front wheel drive.

The magic lies in the battery pack added to both powertrains. The 130 Horsepower powertrain will have a 39.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack whereas the other powertrain will have a massive 64 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Each option will offer 288 kilometers of drive range and 385 kilometers of drive range on a full charge, respectively.

Kia Stinger
