The new Kia Sorento Plug-in Hybrid enters production
Its plug-in hybrid powertrain promises the lowest CO2 emissions ever offered by the Kia Sorento
The full-size, seven-seat SUV will deliver an equivalent all-electric range of up to 57 km from a single charge of its 13.8 kWh battery pack. Furthermore, in urban environments, it is capable of travelling up to 70 km on a single charge before its turbocharged gasoline engine starts up. Drivers are therefore able to complete many journeys, such as their daily commute, on zero-emissions electric power alone.
Its plug-in hybrid powertrain also promises the lowest CO2 emissions ever offered by the Kia Sorento. With emissions of just 38 g/km (WLTP, weighted combined**), the new model is one of the most efficient vehicles in its class.
Furthermore, Kia Sorento PHEV customers will be eligible to access the brand’s new KiaCharge service. This provides access to a pan-European integrated public charging network of around 160,000 charge points via a single card and app. KiaCharge offers attractive charging tariffs to EV and PHEV owners based on their individual charging needs, with a single monthly invoice and no need for multiple vehicles charging accounts or subscriptions.
It will go on-sale across Europe in early 2021, with all models covered by Kia’s 7-year, 150,000-kilometre warranty. The warranty also covers the car’s electric motor and battery pack.
