This all-new Optima Plug-In Hybrid is an eco-friendly vehicle boasting low fuel consumption and emissions. Yet it’s high on style, with energetic lines and a sporty silhouette. It’s guaranteed to impress from every angle.
Kia’s very first plug-in model appears to resemble the carmaker’s standard Optima saloon. Look closer, though, and you will see some stark differences. An all-new active air-flap grille is designed to reduce the drag coefficient. Air flow is optimised thanks to ergonomic front and rear bumpers. Smart chrome flashes mark the rear bumpers, wheel arches and grille surround. A charging port is seamlessly incorporated into the car’s front wing – and the ECO plug-in badge lets everyone know that this is a hybrid.
The four-door hybrid model has ample room for up to five passengers. A brand-new digital instrument cluster, which varies from that of the standard Optima, features valuable information about the charge-state of the battery, remaining energy and much more. Everything is at your fingertips. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning all come as standard, as does driver-only ventilation. This intelligent function further reduces the PHEV’s power consumption.
A cutting-edge 2.0-litre diesel engine is matched with six-speed automatic transmission to deliver 154bhp. Maximum torque stands at 205Nm at 6,000rpm. A 9.8kWh lithium-polymer battery is equipped with a 50kW electric motor – and a total combined output of 202bhp and 375Nm is possible. When running on electric power alone, the Optima PHEV can travel up to 33 miles.
Kia’s all-new Optima Plug-In Hybrid features the latest infotainment system, complete with an intuitive eight-inch touchscreen display. A premium six-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system incorporates DAB digital radio, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto app integration are also included. Voice control allows you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road at all times. Handy driver aids include advanced smart cruise control, autonomous emergency braking and a lane-keeping assist system to keep you steady, in all conditions.
