If your Niro Hybrid does not have a 12 volt battery in the boot - it will have a 12 volt Lo-ion battery alongside the traction battery under the rear seat.

Thanks AlanHo, very interesting video but also quite terrifying as I think my 12v battery is under the rear seat as there is a vent down the side of the seat by the floor. Not the best place to put it due to the fire risk.

My 2017 Niro Hybrid had the 12v lead acid battery in the boot - but it also had the vents in the rear seat to get cooling air onto the traction battery.

My present car is a 2021 Niro Hybrid with a 12v lo-ion battery under the rear set as depicted in the video.
