The Kia Optima PHEV offers great competition to models like VW’s Passat, but with a much lower price tag – adding hugely to its buyer appeal. It also has the potential to attract a goodly sector of the company fleet market, with its sleek looks and size. There’s the efficiency you’d expect from one of today’s well-sorted PHEVs, alongside plenty of performance from the combination of a 50 kW electric motor and 2.0-litre petrol engine - the latter driven by a 9.8 kWh lithium iron polymer battery slung underneath the car at the back. Good CO2 and mpg ratings make this a great contender in the efficiency stakes, combined with quick recharging ability from domestic supplies.
