Since launching the Optima hybrid in 2011, Kia have developed a range of outstanding hybrid vehicles that stand out for their efficiency, appeal and quality. More than a flexible technology, this is a range honed to give you room for inspiration.
The seamless coordination of the engine and battery not only provides power but also efficient use of fuel.
Fill up the car with petrol just like any conventional petrol car. Our Hybrid system cleverly charges the battery whilst you are driving.
Enjoy the performance of two combined power sources funnelled through an automatic or dual-clutch gearbox. The system automatically changes gears swiftly and seamlessly for maximum driving enjoyment.
• Hybrids have a battery and engine that support each other when needed.
• There is no need to charge the battery from an external source.
• The battery charges when decelerating or going downhill.
• Hybrids can operate in electric-only mode when at a standstill, at low, constant speed or when decelerating.
Of course, driving a hybrid means you keep your fuel bills under control but there are other reasons for making a smart choice. With strong resale values, lower tax, better access to restricted city centres and the reassurance of our pioneering 7 year warranty, it is not surprising many of our customers opt for a hybrid.
