Rod took the Kia Niro EV from Sydney to Canberra in one day. That’s more kilometres to travel than range in the battery. The Niro performed perfectly. It was the charging network and lack of trip planning that let him down.
He made it home (although it was a bit later than he planned) and learnt a lot of important lessons about EV ownership along the way.
Driving an electric vehicle around town travelling less than 100km per day was no problem. Rod was able to top up the battery using the 240v outlet at home. So considering this is 95% of the driving most people do, the Kia Niro would make a great fleet vehicle or novated lease car.
