Kia has revealed the first images of its new all-electric Niro since it was premiered at last year’s Paris Motor Show and it’s hard to ignore how much it resembles Ryan Reynolds in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie with his mouth “removed”.

Also taking inspiration from the Niro EV Concept, it features arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights, much like the Kia Picanto and is powered by Kia’s next-generation electric vehicle powertrain.

Underneath it sits a high-capacity 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, allocating the Niro EV with 380 km of EV driving range on a single charge with zero emissions, or up to 240 km on an optional 39.2 kWh battery system.

The Niro EV is set to hit the Korean market in the second half of 2018 and will eventually be introduced to other markets in due course.
