Touch and go.

Convenience and control are at your fingertips with Kia’s UVO eco system. UVO eco integrates telematics and infotainment systems into a single interface in our mobile app, so you can interact with your Niro Plug-In Hybrid right from your smartphone.


Make hands-free calls and texts. Get directions, diagnostics, and emergency assistance. Track your Kia and receive My Car Zone™ alerts. UVO connects you with the driving experience of the future.

Available voice-command navigation maps efficient routes to your destinations. And with My POIs, you can plan points of interest for your trip and send them to your UVO system for routing.

Integrated eco system. 

Niro Plug-In Hybrid owners enjoy the added features of UVO eco to help keep you charged and rolling whether you're on the road or off, along with the added convenience of remote control and notification features.


Features like Find Charging Stations help keep you charged, while Off-Peak Charge Scheduling lets you schedule charges during off-peak electricity hours to save money.

Remote commands add convenience: lock and unlock doors, start your motor, and set your cabin climate with heated accessories or AC—all before you reach your car.

Feel nervous leaving your car with valet? Worry no more with UVO’s new Valet Alert feature. Get even more peace of mind with features like Speed Alerts and Find My Car.
