US: Kia Introduces 2022 Niro EV, Raises Price

The specs remain the same, but the entry-level version received a 10.25-inch touchscreen as standard.

Kia America announced today the 2022 model year Kia Niro EV, which was slightly refreshed and better equipped as standard.

On the outside, the Niro EV now has the new Kia badging on the front grille, the tailgate, steering wheel hub and wheel center caps. The biggest change is probably that the 10.25-inch touchscreen is now standard.

“For the new model year, the 10.25-inch touchscreen becomes standard. Navigation, UVO link and Sirius XM satellite radio along with the premium Harmon/Kardon sound system are bundled into the touchscreen.”

Unfortunately, the entry-level trim version is now $900 more expensive ($39,990 compared to $39,090 in 2021 MY):
