Kia have introduced their first ever hybrid vehicle in the form of the Kia Optima PHEV. The All-New Optima PHEV offers both a striking exterior as well as a high quality interior.
The All-New Kia Optima PHEV
Kia's First Ever Plug-in Hybrid
The brand new plug-in hybrid model builds upon the sporty image which has helped the Optima Saloon to become one of Kia's best selling models to date.
Unique features on the front, sides and rear of the PHEV deliver its own unique look within the Optima family including a side plug-in socket, hidden exhaust and unique alloy wheels.
The All-New Optima PHEV interior is comfortable with an innovative and functional cabin that is well- appointed with a contemporary theme.
Internally the Optima PHEV offers a selection of excellent features including an 8" LCD touchscreen Sat Nav and a 10-speaker premium Harman / Kardon sound system.
In addition to the selection of modern technologies found inside the PHEV, the all new Optima Hybrid also offers a sizeable boot capacity space of 307 litres for all of your luggage needs.
Battery and Charging System
The PHEV comes equipped with a Lithium Ion Polymer battery pack system. The system consists of 2 units located behind the rear seat and in the tyre well area.
The Battery capacity is 9.8kWh and energy density of 75 Eh/kg. The skillful packaging ensures that boot capacity losses are reduced.
The All-New Optima can be charged with a Type 2 to 220v cable for domestic charging or a Type 2 to Type 2 cable which are both supplied when purchasing the vehicle.
In addition to the impressive charging system, the all new Optima Plug-in Hybrid comes with a selection of technological features to improve efficiency throughout.
The intelligent heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC) is used to save battery power as well as a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Select Switch to choose between the all electric and hybrid power modes.
