Re: USB

>>I’m not sure on the PHEV!!! The number of times I get the battery saver activated while car stopped notification when I start the car is quite high<<

I had noticed that, but I had nothing plugged in.

There is usually a live socket somewhere, in the earlier KIA's it was in the boot

Re: Colour Options - Niro HEV 4.

I liked the Espresso metallic on the samples card, then saw one on the way out of the showroom that was standing outside, and changed my mind.

Yes the Gravity Blue does show the dirt

Re: PHEV OR HEV? High Mileage

At 60000 miles annually any car will be worthless in 2 years and a diesel car will be cheaper, I agree I will not buy another diesel for reasons you give but I only do 10000 miles

Re: Bulb upgrade

I am thinking of fitting these to my NIRO PHEV as I am a bit disappointed with the original ones ,HB3 OSRAM Night Breaker Laser Next Generation 12v 60w Headlight Bulb , Has any one fitted these, I know there are brighter ones but I want to stay legal.

Re: Charging PHEV

Is your car switched on to "Charge now " or "charge to schedule".
The charge rate for Tesla charge at the Supercharger stations is much higher than the charge rate for NIRO (3.3kw)
I gather that only Tesla's can charge at Tesla charger

Re: EV mileage and noise

I have now done 1200 miles in my PHEV and I have never noticed the engine noise, the worst noise is that artificial engine noise at low speed.

Is this a LEGAL requirement as I tend to switch it off as it drives me mad?

Re: What size SD card is advisable for the sat/nav etc. in the Niro hybrid

Are you sure this is only 64mb, if so there is no way this will be big enough . My NIRO PHEV has 32GB full size SD
