Start Driving Kia Eco
There are many reasons to choose the Kia Eco Range. The 7 year warranty, the huge choice of vehicles and engines, and our electric vehicle heritage. But you might find the main one is, they’re great to drive.
Reduced running costs
Using less fuel is not only good for the environment it’s also good for your finances! Improved fuel economy means less money spent on fuel, and less time wasted at the pumps. The lower emissions also mean a reduced VED rate and lower BIK tax.
Because the electric motor assists with acceleration there is less strain on the engine which helps lower emissions. The electric motor can also take over at low speeds – in stop/start traffic for example. That means the engine isn’t running for as long, so cleaner air for everybody.
If you aren’t quite ready to go fully electric, a plug-in hybrid is the perfect compromise. You get around 30-miles of electric driving, but you always have the petrol engine for longer trips.
Charge at home
In the UK, the vast majority of electric car charging is done at home. This is usually the most convenient and cost-effective way to charge. Get home, plug in, wake up with a full charge. Brilliant! To charge from home, it is best to get a home charge point installed. A dedicated home EV charger will charge your car much faster than using a three-pin plug – up to three times quicker! It’s safer, too.
