Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid Confirmed
More good stuff coming from Kia, as the Korean company announced its intention to bring to market a plug-in hybrid Optima.
The PHEV would be introduced “sometime next year” in both sedan and new wagon version, also scheduled for 2016 release.
Obviously, this car would make a lot of sense for the company, with the Sonata PHEV close to arriving on dealer lots – leaving only some brand-engineering as the only hurdle left to jump for Kia.
There are no details on the drivetrain, not even type of engine (petrol/diesel).
The 2016 Optima looks sharp and we welcome it to the plug-in family.
We’ve been waiting on the Sonata plug-in hybrid the better part of this year – and promised by 2015’s end. Hopefully, the wait ends soon.
