Kia e-Niro poised for 2020 Australian Open launch

Kia Australia looks poised to leverage its naming rights sponsorship of the Australian Open Tennis Grand Slam to electrifying effect, by using the 2020 event held in January as the launch program for its e-Niro EV crossover. The company is working on an ambitious plan to have a fleet of Niro electric cars serving as shuttle vehicles around Melbourne during the event, in place of the familiar stickered-up Carnivals and Sorentos, with the dealer rollout coinciding.

Hyundai Kona EV, Kia e-Niro range downgraded

The long-range Hyundai Kona EV has had its range downgraded on the WLTP test cycle, after the company discovered its external test agency hadn't followed the correct test procedure. Kia last week downgraded the range of its e-Niro for the same reason. The re-rating means the 39kWh Kona is rated for 289km instead of 300km, while the 64kWh model is officially good for 449km rather than the 470km initially promised.

There's no guarantee those figures will transition to Europe, with reports suggesting the Korean market will get a unique model.
