Like the Rav4 Prime we have on order I'd probably order the base with the winter package for my climate besides I prefer cloth and no sun roof and ventilated seats are also low on my list. Interesting the battery heater isn't standard on all models, wonder how it would fare in my climate with the battery potentially getting sub zero temps......almost like it doesn't get cold in Korea I also find it odd my daughters Korean Ionic PHEV lacks an electric heater and with the cost of gas now days, she's driving it frequently without heat and a single digit cabin temp I really wanted her to get a Prius Prime but she really wanted anything but.....cwerdna wrote: ↑Tue Feb 22, 2022 8:34 pm On '22 Niro EV EX (lowest of the two trims), front heated seats are standard.
Looks like if you go to EX Premium (the higher trim), you get ventilated & heated front seats + other stuff (e.g. sunroof, syntex instead of cloth seats).
For either trim, cold weather package is a $1100 option and seems to add:
Heated Steering Wheel
I'm just going by what's at https://www.kia.com/us/en/niro-ev. If you go to near the bottom, it lists what extra stuff EX Premium gets you.
I unfortunately wasn't watching charging speeds at EA Santa Clarita and the receipt/charging history has a doubtful (likely bogus) peak value of 92.6 kW. I did reach 60 kW on the 62.5 kW McFarland ChargePoint chargers. I wouldn't expect anything different than https://insideevs.com/reviews/351535/te ... e-station/ on a sufficiently powerful DC FC.
