Optima Side view of plug inThe range of eco-friendly vehicles is growing, offering a larger choice. Even with the continuous development of green automobile technology, many drivers are still unfamiliar with the concept of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) and they are still a rarity on the roads today.

The Optima PHEV, Kia’s very own plug-in hybrid, has new features that give the model impressive fuel economy and extra driving convenience. While still recognizable as a member of the Optima family, the plug-in model also features some PHEV-exclusive additions to further increase functionality.

Part-time electric vehicle and part-time hybrid, PHEVs may be the most ideal and functional type of current day eco-friendly cars. With an electric motor and a backup hybrid engine, PHEVs allow for pure eco-friendly electric driving while easing range anxiety – the fear that a vehicle will not possess sufficient charge or energy to reach a certain destination. In that sense, plug-in hybrids offer the best of both worlds by making up for the shortcomings of both EV cars and regular hybrid models.

The upgraded hybrid powertrain, 6-speed transmission and battery system work together to offer a consistently high level of efficiency and power, minimizing energy transfer and conversion losses.

The Optima Plug-In Hybrid delivers a silent ride, but it is definitely not without power!
