IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kia Motors America has donated a 2020 Niro EV to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in an effort to raise awareness and increase adoption of alternative fuel vehicles.

When the vehicle is not in use, MIT's Information Systems and Technology Department will park the vehicle in various campus locations, therefore drawing attention to alternative fuel vehicles as a normal course of business.

"Donating a Niro EV to MIT, one of the most revered institutions of higher learning in the country will raise the profile of alternative-use vehicles and draw attention to the important role these vehicles will play in the future of mobility," said Russell Wager, director, marketing operations, Kia Motors America.
