The 2020 model was first opened for orders as from 1st July 2019. I have recently ordered my HEV and delivery is quoted as end of August. Let's see if that happens !
Did they mention the year? 😀

[This will be my second Niro HEV 4 as I am so delighted with the first which I have had for three years now.
I didn't know a 4 existed in 2016, I thought it was 1, 2, 3, First Edition?

Ah yes, silly me, of course it was a First Edition in 2016 !

The 2020 spec has an electric 'hand' brake. I have the earlier one with a foot operated parking brake - I HATE electric parking brakes so for that I am glad I've got what I have. Also the 2020 model has LED headlights - my one has halogens

Interesting as there has been so much adverse comment on here about the foot brake being a bit ‘agricultural’ I test drove a Niro Hybrid last year and it did not bother me but In the the end I went with a Kona EV as it came out first and dispenses with the gearbox. It has an electronic parking brake. But it is only required when parking as you can use the hold function when stopped at junctions. I assume the Niro EV is similar. Either way beats the old fashioned lever.
