Switching to a Kia Hybrid or Electric vehicle is easier than you might think. Kia offers a broad array of models with Hybrid , Plug-In Hybrid or Electric powertrains. Discover the benefits of our hybrid and electric range and find out which is best for you.
Hybrid and Electric vehicles may have a higher purchase price but take the strong residual values and relatively low running costs into account and the proposition becomes a lot more attractive.
With clutch-less operation and instant acceleration response, our electric vehicles are genuinely fun to drive. Our EV6, with its road-hugging all-wheel drive traction system, takes you from 0-62mph in only 5.2 seconds.
Kia electrified powertrains offer truly useable range and versatility. With our Hybrids and Plug-In Hybrids, you don’t have to compromise on total range compared to conventional vehicles.
Good for the environment, great for lower tax. Whether you own your car or drive it for your company, Electric and Hybrid vehicles offer many tax advantages over conventional cars.
Kia Electric Vehicles can charge in a matter of minutes, not hours. Using the predominant CCS standard for DC charging, our EV6 is capable of charging from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes.
Driving a Hybrid or Electric car is one of the ways to help combat climate change, so we safeguard our planet and children’s future.
What kind of car best suits you?
Kia hybrid vehicles, or HEVs, have both a petrol engine and small battery. The battery is said to be ‘self-charging’ meaning that it is usually replenished when decelerating.
Hybrid vehicles only function in full electric mode while stationary, at low speed or when decelerating. At other times, the battery merely supports the combustion engine to get greater fuel efficiency and reach a range similar to that of regular cars.
Kia plug-in hybrid vehicles, or PHEVs, allow you to drive in electric mode on most of your short journeys, while allowing you to travel much further using both petrol and electricity.
When starting from a fully charged battery, Kia PHEVs have an electric range of up to 40 miles depending on the model. On longer journeys, they boast a range similar to that of conventional cars by using their engine and battery in tandem.
Kia electric vehicles, or EVs, run solely on electricity. This offers quiet operation, zero tailgate emissions and breath-taking performance.
Electric vehicle technology has come on leaps and bounds. With technologies like our e-GMP platform, our EVs have an electric range of up to 328 miles and charge in a matter of minutes thanks to a fast-expanding and easy-to-access network of public EV charging stations.
