Kia seems to offer a warranty on the pack:
And with 10-year/100,000-mile EV System Warranty, which includes the high-voltage EV battery, the Niro EV offers a class-leading EV warranty in the U.S.
Is the devil in the details? Sounds like you are saying that their warranty only covers failures and not degradation,
but I can't find any other details.
Per one of our members from north of the border, a capacity warranty is
provided for Niros in Canada. See https://www-myev-com.cdn.ampproject.org ... warranties
for a comparison of U.S. warranties.
You can also access the Niro's U.S. warranty online. It's a pity as I generally like the car (beside the lack of AWD), but it implies a hotter U.S. climate is a lot tougher on the battery than a colder climate, just as you'd expect. I sent Kia an email a while back, telling them if they didn't have any confidence in their battery longevity in likely U S. conditions, why would they expect their customers to have any? BTW, Hyundai's the same.
