How do Kia hybrids work?

  • When driving off from a stop position

    When accelerating from a stationary position and travelling at low speeds, hybrid cars are powered by the electric motor (which draws on the battery power). This is one reason why hybrids are particularly efficient during city driving.

  • When driving at moderate speed

    When cruising, hybrids are powered mainly by the combustion engine – as this is where the combustion engine works most efficiently. Depending on the driving condition (road gradient, engine load) the vehicle may seamlessly transition between petrol and electric power at speeds of up to 120kph.

  • Under hard acceleration

    When you have your foot down firmly on the accelerator pedal, both the combustion engine and electric motor work together to maximise the power output to the wheels. This is thanks to the clever transmission, which combines the torque output of each powertrain at the same time.

  • When braking or cruising

    Whenever you apply the brakes or take your foot off the accelerator pedal, hybrid cars do two things: they stop feeding power to the wheels and use the power of the rotating wheels to recuperate energy while slowing down the car. This produces electricity which is used to recharge the battery for later use. This is known as regenerative braking.

Why choose a Kia EV?

  • Range & Fast Charging

    Range anxiety is a worry of the past, with examples of Kia EVs capable of max 528km[A] of range. Most are compatible with DC Fast Charging stations, reducing charging times from hours to mere minutes.[B]

  • Unique driving experience

    With instant acceleration response, our electric vehicles are genuinely fun to drive. Batteries are positioned underneath the car, giving them a lower centre of gravity and thus greater stability and handling.

  • Lower maintenance costs

    With less moving parts compared to petrol and diesel engines, all-electric vehicles require comparably less maintenance such as oil changes, spark plugs or fuel filters. You can also purchase scheduled services in advance through our Kia Service Plan program.

  • Sustainability

    EVs have zero tailpipe emissions while hybrids have reduced amounts. In addition, some parts of our EVs such as EV6 & Niro range are made from recycled plastics and vegan leather to further lessen environmental impact.
