Kia Niro Features 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Gearbox, Regenerative Braking
The highly-anticipated Niro concept car will make its official public premiere tomorrow.
The small SUV concept, which hints at Kia’s possible near-future B-segment contender, uses some highly advanced powertrain technology under its hood.
The power comes from a 1,6L T-GDI turbo engine which is mated to Kia’s new 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
The 7-speed dual clutch delivers the engine power to the front wheels, while the rear-wheels get an additional power boost from an electric-hybrid system.
More details about Kia’s innovative powertrain technology will be published here tomorrow, so stay tuned!
