Kia Optima PHEV Home Charging Guide

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. There's decent performance from the combination of a 50kW electric motor and 2.0-litre petrol engine, while the 9.8kWh battery pack offers an electric only range of up to 30 miles. 

Charging the Kia Optima plug-in hybrid is quick and simple. Using a dedicated home wallbox, like those below, it will charge from empty to full in about three hours.
