Kia Venga EV includes a twin-pack 24 kWh battery using innovative LiPoly (Lithium Ion Polymer) technology that offers numerous advantages over other battery types, and provides a driving range of 112 miles on a single charge.

Under the quick recharging cycle (50 kW) the battery can be recharged to 80 per cent of its capacity within 20 minutes. Under the normal cycle (3.3 kW), 100 per cent power is attained after eight hours.

As an all-electric, zero-emissions vehicle that is solely powered by electric energy stored inside its battery, Kia Venga EV will contribute to increased environmental protection.
