Actual charging speed & charging time may be influenced by the battery temperature and exterior weather conditions. Battery range figures are official EU test figures for comparative purposes and may not reflect real driving results. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are tested using WLTP. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. For more information about WLTP please visit www.kia.com/uk/new-cars/emissions
While Kia electric cars offer ample range, you may want to know what life looks like when you use them for your short or long journeys. Learn more about how our EVs can suit your needs with their extensive range and flexible charging capabilities.
You can do this at home, at work if your employer provides this facility, or you can do small top-ups at one of the many supermarkets or car parks now offering electric car charging .
Longer distance journeys
With their long range, Kia electric cars are well suited to any long journeys, but planning is key.
You can use short rest stops as an opportunity to top up your Kia using a fast, DC charging station.
Leave yourself enough charge to arrive at your planned stop without breaking a sweat, and if you're in a hurry, just top up to 80% as charging speeds slow down beyond this level.
And to help you plan trips, Kia Charge provides a convenient journey planner.
What Influences Your Range
The range of your electric vehicle can be influenced by various external factors, as well as many that are within your control. Read our article to get your electric car's best range and find out more about how to increase the range of your electric car.
Type of road
Driving on the motorway impacts your driving range. Keep it in mind for longer distance trips and plan accordingly. In certain cases, lowering your speed can even save you from stopping for a charge, making your overall trip quicker..
Temperatures have an impact on your driving range. You can expect to obtain excellent range in spring/summer but autumn/winter will see a reduction.
Air conditioning and the use of electronic equipment puts additional strain on your battery so it is a good idea to use the Kia Connect app to pre-condition your cabin at home before you depart and while your Kia is plugged in.
