The Kia Electric and Hybrid Range

Kia Electric and Hybrid cars use electric power or a combination of electric and petrol to drive the engine. This makes them more economical to run with lower emissions than traditional petrol or diesel driven cars.

So, whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint, or simply wish to lower the cost of running your car, there are plenty of reasons to go electric and making the switch is much simpler than you might think!

 

 

Reasons to drive an Electric or Hybrid car

The Economical choice
Due to Hybrid cars using an electric motor as an additional source of power to support the combustion less fuel is used, which in turn cuts down your running costs.

Tax Incentives
For company car drivers, battery-electric cars are subject to a lower company car BIK tax, which for battery-electric cars registered after the 6th April 2020 is 0%. This increases to 1% in 2021/22 and to 2% in 2022/23. All hybrid powertrains also benefit from lower BIK tax rates and still have the potential to save you thousands of pounds compared to a traditional petrol or diesel equivalent. https://www.gov.uk/plug-in-car-van-grants

Relaxing Drive
Electric cars are incredibly quiet, making for a more relaxing atmosphere. Driving is easy too, because electric motors produce maximum torque at all revs, so acceleration is instant. While all Hybrids handle just as smoothly as conventional cars, with the added bonus that they are extremely quiet in electric mode. And the shift between the two powertrains is so seamless that it is practically inaudible.

Better for the environment
There are no exhaust emissions from the tailpipe of an electric vehicle – in fact, it doesn’t even have a tailpipe – this is particularly helpful for improving air quality in urban areas. Hybrid cars, in general, also emit less pollution than standard vehicles. For example, in traffic or at a red light the engine automatically switches off and uses the electric motor to restart or reboot the engine.
