Niro HEV

Al Majid Motors introduces new Kia hybrid SUV

DUBAI, 17 days ago

Al Majid Motors Company, the exclusive and sole distributor for Kia Motors in the UAE, is introducing Kia’s Niro HEV, a dedicated hybrid sports utility vehicle, at the 3rd International Conference on Future Mobility (ICFM) in Dubai, UAE.

The conference runs on November 7 and 8 at the Grand Hyatt, and represents the region’s largest and most influential annual gathering of leaders in smart, clean, intelligent and connected mobility.

Kia’s Niro HEV complements the theme of this year’s ICFM, ’Towards Sustainable and Intelligent Mobility’, as it bolsters the driving range for one of the few available hybrid crossover SUVs.

The vehicle uses an advanced parallel hybrid system that switches between gasoline and electric power, and charges the battery whenever it can. The system is seamless and responsive while achieving class-leading efficiency and cutting CO2emissions to a low of only 88 g/km.

The Kia Niro HEV features a new Kappa 1.6-litre GDJ engine, which generates output of 105ps at 5,700 rpm and peak torque of 15.0 kg m at 4,000rpm. The engine provides the perfect match for the Niro hybrid system, which offers a combined maximum output of 141 ps.

Equipped with the permanent magnet electric motor providing up to 43.5ps on its own, the electric motor also assists the gasoline engine in hybrid mode and recharges the battery during deceleration. Driving a hybrid reduces dependence on fossil fuels, allowing the SUV to save on fuel costs, and significantly decreases carbon emissions.

The vehicle is also equipped with a suite of advanced features including a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Dual-Zone Full Auto Temperature Cooling Control, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-Start Assist Control, Parking Assist and Wireless Smart Phone Charging, among many others. Drivers will also be able to choose the colour and interior packages to match their individual tastes.
In line with its long-term structural growth programme, Kia Motors will be introducing more than 39 new and facelift models before 2020, all of which feature the latest engine technology, innovative safety features and the very best interior refinements.

These advanced features will be enclosed within leading, eye-catching exterior design concepts.

 Al Majid Motors is excited to be continuing its fruitful partnership with Kia and putting its sustainable and environmentally friendly technology toward achieving greater sustainability on UAE roads. – TradeArabia News Service
