Following a significant redesign for 2023, Kia’s Niro EV enters the 2024 model year with minimal changes and a commensurate price increase of just $50. The 2024 model makes the dual-level cargo floor standard, drops Fire Orange Metallic exterior paint, and the base Wind variant no longer offers the Light Grey interior option.

The 2024 Niro EV Wind will start at $40,925, while the top Wave trim rings in at $45,925 (all prices include a $1,325 destination fee). Both trims of the all-electric hatchback are powered by the same single-motor, front-wheel-drive setup with a 64.8-kilowatt-hour battery that’s good for an EPA-estimated 253 miles of range.

We’re fans of the Niro EV, having named the 2023 model our Top Pick for Commuters. It’s also on our list of the cheapest EVs you can buy despite its starting price north of $40,000. One of the most notable competitors is the larger Volkswagen ID.4 SUV, which is slightly more affordable in its base RWD configuration with 209 miles of range; however, its closest competitor is the redesigned-for-2024 Hyundai Kona EV. We’ve driven the gas-powered version of the Kona, which is more expensive than the previous-gen model, but we don’t yet have pricing for the 2024 Kona EV.

If you’re interested in a different flavor of the Niro, you can choose a traditional hybrid or plug-in hybrid, as well. The 2024 Niro hybrid (the 2023 was our Best Car of 2023 winner) is priced from $28,165, while the 2024 Niro PHEV starts at $35,615.
