Kia e-Niro Crowned Best Electric Small SUV At Great British Fleet Awards
Accumulating yet another award, the popular e-Niro has been named the ‘Best EV Small SUV’ at the third-annual Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards.
The Great British Fleet Awards are hosted by industry-renowned publication Fleet World, focusing on the best vehicles available for fleets today.
This includes a large sub-section for electric cars under the EV Fleet World banner.
From the new Kia e-Niro’s impressive range, to its high-tech, quality interior, Fleet World’s expert panel of judges unanimously concluded that it’s an ‘ideal choice for businesses looking to go electric’.
Martyn Collins, Editor of Fleet World, commented: ‘The e-Niro might not be the newest model in its class, but recent tweaks have kept the SUV shape looking fresh.
‘The reason it is still top of our ‘EV Small SUV’ pile is that this model offers a scarcely believable 282-mile real-world range.
‘A tidy drive too, the Kia is confident and competent on the road. Plus, the e-Niro interior is impressively practical, spacious and well-equipped.’
The Fleet World accolade comes just after the e-Niro was revealed as being the UK EV most sold within the first two months of 2021, with some 75 per cent going to fleets in February alone. You can learn more about the e-Niro leading UK EV sales, here.
With an incredibly impressive range of up to 282-miles, plus a lengthy list of standard equipment, it’s no surprise that the Kia e-Niro took home the prize in its category.
Featuring a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen, with satellite navigation and telematics featuring UVO Connect Services, as well as a battery heat management system for efficiency, plus a choice of either battery sizes – there’s plenty of reasons why the e-Niro has found favour with fleet customers.
Additionally, Kia recently launched their ‘KiaCharge’ charging network access app. This offers drivers of their plug-in vehicle range access to more than 15,000 charge points across the UK. You can find out more about this, here.
John Hargreaves, Fleet and Remarketing General Manager at Kia Motors (UK) Limited, declared: ‘This latest recognition for the e-Niro reflects the car’s considerable fleet appeal and demand ever since its launch in 2018.
‘The e-Niro’s many strengths help establish Kia’s electric future, as well as making a superb first choice for fleets thanks to its reassuring long range, rapid charging, practicality and high levels of standard equipment, which add to its low total cost of ownership and high residual values.
‘It’s no wonder why the e-Niro has become the de facto electric car for the discerning fleet customer.’
