All models – Always ensure that all doors and tailgate are closed fully, interior lights are switched off and the car is locked with the remote transmitter. This will not only ensure the vehicle security but also minimise drain on the battery.

Niro Hybrid & PHEV – Avoid turning on then off the engine until it has reached temperature.

Niro PHEV – If suitable battery charging equipment is available, charge the 12V battery at regular intervals (recommended every two weeks). Alternatively use an intelligent charger which can be connected permanently and will periodically monitor / maintain battery condition.
If you are not able to use a battery charger, start the engine and allow it to idle for 20 minutes every two weeks. Stay with the vehicle while doing this, and turn off all unnecessary electrical items, such as lights and heated screens.
Should you find your 12V battery has already discharged, recharge the battery using a battery charger if available. If you use a jump pack or jump leads to start the vehicle, refer to the Owner’s Manual for further guidance, paying particular attention to how and where to connect leads. The Intelligent Stop Go (ISG) system (where fitted) can be damaged if chargers or jump leads/packs are incorrectly connected.

Niro Hybrid – Niro self-charging hybrid models (18MY onwards) are equipped with a 12V Lithium Ion battery and a battery reset switch. You can help preserve your 12V Lithium Ion battery charge by starting the engine and allow it to idle for 20 minutes every two weeks. Stay with the vehicle while doing this, and turn off all unnecessary electrical items, such as lights and heated screens.
On no account should a charger, jump pack or jump leads be attached to your vehicle. Instead, if the 12V lithium-ion battery is discharged, it can be reset by pressing the battery reset switch. Please refer to the Owner’s Manual for more information.

e-Niro, Niro PHEV, Soul EV – For EV & Plug-in Hybrid vehicles it is recommended that the high voltage battery is left in a fully charged state.
Charge the car then leave it and check the charge status every so often. If you do leave it plugged in, the vehicle will shut down the charging when full so no problems should occur. For those without home charging, they should visit a charge point while following government rules relating to the current coronavirus lockdown rules.
