The Best of Both Worlds with the 2018 Kia Optima PHEV
July 13 2018, Gus Revenberg Kia
Offering all the benefits of an electric car without the disadvantages, the 2018 Kia Optima PHEV is the ideal vehicle for an intelligent transition to a greener automotive industry.
Driving Gas-Free With the 2018 Kia Optima PHEV
The Kia Optima 2018 PHEV is equipped with a plug-in hybrid technology. An electric motor and a traditional gasoline engine are working together to keep the vehicle moving in the most efficient way possible.
Unlike a traditional hybrid car, the Kia Optima PHEV can operate in fully electric mode. Its range of 47 kilometres allows you to get your daily commutes done without needing a single drop of fuel. All that remains is to plug the Optima PHEV for three short hours at a 240-volt charging station, and the 10-kWh battery regenerates to 100%, ready to go back out on the road with a full range.
For short daily trips, the Kia Optima PHEV can operate in full electric mode. And when needed, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder gas engine lets you drive as far as you would in a traditional car.
At Gus Revenberg Kia, we know that many motorists are interested in electric cars, but they are not necessarily ready to plan their trips based on the battery life and the location of the charging stations.
The 2018 Optima PHEV is the ideal compromise. And with a combined power of 202 horsepower and 276 pound-feet of torque, it does it without sacrificing driving pleasure.
2018 Kia Optima PHEV Puts Luxury First
It's not because we drive a fuel-efficient, eco-friendly that we do not want a little luxury! Kia certainly has understood that. The Optima PHEV comes standard with leather seats, a premium 9-speaker audio system and an infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. All this for a starting price of $ 42,995.
With the Premium version, the Optima PHEV adds a layer of high-end equipment such as a panoramic sunroof and air-cooled, electric-adjustable front seats.
