FIRST KIA PLUG-IN HYBRID

The first Kia plug-in hybrid has been launched. Kia’s first plug-in hybrid model, the Optima PHEV, is priced at £31,495 after taking into account the Government’s £2,500 plug-in car grant.

With a range of up to 33 miles in all-electric mode, the Optima PHEV is able to complete many regular urban commuter runs with no tailpipe emissions, while its CO2 figure of just 37g/km means company car users pay just 7 per cent benefit-in-kind taxation in 2016-17.

The Optima PHEV combines a 154bhp 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine with a 50kW (67hp) electric motor which replaces the torque converter in the six-speed automatic transmission. When working together, the combustion engine and motor generate 202 hp.

The model comes with comprehensive range of standard connectivity and advanced driver assistance features, including an 8.0-inch touch-screen navigation system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a wireless mobile phone charger, around-view monitor and a 10-speaker premium sound system.

LOW ON FUEL & EMISSIONS –
HIGH ON STYLE & COMFORT.

Introducing the first Kia plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. It delivers in all departments – from striking design to enjoyable driving, low running costs and minimal environmental impact. That’s thanks to its advanced new plug-in hybrid powertrain, which makes this Optima an incredibly compelling proposition for green-minded motorists.

DISTINCTIVE ON THE OUTSIDE.DISTINGUISHED ON THE INSIDE.

As well as being a joy to drive, the All-New Kia Optima Plug-in Hybrid is also a joy to behold – from every single angle, both inside and out.
Exterior Design
Instantly recognisable as part of the Optima range thanks to its charismatic and muscular contours, the exterior design features a series of visual enhancements that also give it a unique look of its own and improve aerodynamic efficiency. These include re-profiled front and rear bumpers for enhanced air-flow over the body, special eco blue inserts for the dedicated front grille and side sills, distinctive full LED headlamps and, of course, the integrated charging port.
Interior Design

Exceptional design goes far beneath the surface. So it’s no surprise that the interior of the All-New Kia Optima Plug-in Hybrid is just as stunning as its exterior. Modern, spacious, high-quality – these are just some of the words that’ll come to mind while zipping around town in your on-the-go life.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS:PLUG-IN HYBRID TECHNOLOGY EXPLAINED

The All-New Optima Plug-in Hybrid is smartly powered by both a petrol engine and an electric motor, which can be charged by plugging it into a household socket, or at a public charging station. Giving you uncompromised flexibility as you drive.
Reaching your destination will never be a worry thanks to the combustion engine, which allows you to drive the plug-in hybrid like a regular vehicle. The innovative powertrain employs Kia’s efficient 2.0-litre GDI petrol engine at its core, which delivers 156 ps. This engine is coupled with the electric motor, enabling the car to operate in charge-sustaining mode once the battery runs out.
The plug-in hybrid technology also delivers consistently in terms of performance, offering a seamless transition between EV (electric) and HEV (hybrid) driving modes. It is performant, fuel-efficient, low on emissions – and just as easy to drive and maintain as a regular car.
With its advanced technology, impressive performance – and a generous 7-year warranty on the battery and the car – the Optima Plug-in Hybrid is a winning choice.
