Los Angeles Auto Show: Kia Optima Hybrid
November 18, 2010 §
The Hyundai Sonata’s sister: the Kia Optima Hybrid uses a direct-injection 2.4-litre petrol engine in a parallel-hybrid system which allows for all-electric operation at up to 62mph. It’s got stop-start and delivers an average 40mpg (US). Unlikely to come to the UK, however.
