Best Combined Power, Style & Environmental Impact

by Topher0222 from Doylestown, PA | July 28, 2018

This Plug-in Hybrid has the power when you need it, the amazing MPG when you are driving normally and a ton of style with an amazing technology package. This is the best car that I have ever driven. sure I have ahd other cars with more power or more style, but when you add the technology package with the ecological impact, this is a no-brainer. I've had the car for almost 4 months, and have only filled the tank 4 times. It's a 16 gal tank. Luckily I can use the electric engine for my commute to/from work (22 miles each way), without any gas, so I am only using gas when I go beyond the 22 mile electric charge. Even then, on the hybrid engine, I am getting 55-60 MPG. Including the electric engine, I'm averaging 150 MPG for the life of the car, thus far.

This is the second Kia I have owned and I love it!

Love everything about Kia! I am not sure I will ever leave the Kia family. Roseville Kia went above and beyond to make it work for me!

Style meets eco conscious

This is beautiful and comfortable ride. I was looking for something stylish, fuel efficient and comfortable without breaking the bank. This car met all of my check lost items.

2018 Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid Overview

The 2018 Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid is almost the same as the regular Optima Hybrid midsize sedan. The biggest difference is that the plug-in’s lithium polymer battery can be charged in less than three hours with a 240V power outlet. It is powered by a combined 202-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor mated to an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission.
