Kia introduced the Kia Niro Plus in April 2022. Released in South Korea from the second half of 2022, the Niro Plus is a new variant of the Niro that maximises the onboard space by increasing the height of the vehicle by 80 mm, and by using thinner seats. The total length also increases by 10 mm. The second-row legroom was expanded by 28 mm by adjusting the position of the second-row seat. In addition, the taxi model was applied by additionally applying the power seat and reclining function of the Dongseungseok and lowering the height of the Dongseungseok headrest by 43 mm. An integrated All-in-One Display for taxi model includes navigation, app taximeter, digital tachograph and voice recognition. Two variants are offered: the Kia Niro Plus Taxi (specifically intended for cab drivers and only available in BEV) and the Kia Niro Plus (open to all types of customers and available in HEV, PHEV and BEV). The latter will be exported overseas.
In the interior, recycled fibres were used on the ceiling of the vehicle and water-friendly paint without benzene, toluene, and xylene was added to the door panel. The bio-artificial leather sheet used fibres made from raw materials extracted from eucalyptus leaves. It is also equipped with driver assistance systems and infotainment such as head-up displays, remote smart parking assistance, rear passenger notification, and smart power tailgate.

Although genomic analysis has provided several significant findings such as the identification of driver genes including many kinases in cancer, mechanisms for anti-cancer drug resistance cannot be fully explained by using genomic approaches. For example, modulation of phosphorylation signals by bypass pathways or aberrant localization of kinases, such as nuclear localization of EGFR, have been reported as reasons for drug resistance7, 8. Thus, proteomics approaches, as well as genomic approaches, are important for characterizing the kinome status. 2b1af7f3a8
