Performance of the 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid
Powering the new 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid is Kia's new Full Parallel Hybrid system. This combines an electric motor with a Gas Direct Injection (GDI) engine that work together for optimal performance. This system is able to switch between using the electric motor and the GDI engine to fit the current driving conditions. For example, it will use electric power for starting up the car and low-speed driving, and then use both systems once drivers pick up speed. The new Optima Hybrid is also able to provide an impressive EPA-estimate fuel economy rating of 39 city/46 highway/42 combined mpg.
