Smart Hybrid EV Technology
At the touch of the Hybrid/Electric (HEV/EV) button located next to the gear knob, you can prioritise between electric and hybrid mode. In EV mode, ideal for urban driving, the system’s priority is to use only electric energy for a zero fossil fuel, emission-free drive; with an impressive driving range of over 36 miles of inner-city driving - When there’s insufficient battery charge, the system simply switches automatically to hybrid mode which operates both energy sources simultaneously, the petrol engine and the electric motor.
The Kia Regenerative Braking System harvests kinetic energy that recharges your cars battery pack while coasting or braking, and this technology helps to extend the cars driving range when in EV mode. The useful on-board Coasting Guide will analyse your route and the traffic conditions to let you know when you can take your foot off the accelerator pedal.
Where to Plug-in
When you plug in the PHEV for charging an indicator that is subtly embedded within the speaker grille in the middle of the cars dashboard displays 3 LED lights to provide the charging status and battery level - Enjoy the convenience of easy charging from a standard household 240v socket or at a dedicated public charging station which usually provides a higher powered AC charge that will restore the battery pack back to 100% in approximately 2 hours 15 minutes.
