The Kia Eco Range

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

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 Eco and making the switch is much simpler than you might think.

Reasons to drive an Electric or Hybrid car

The Eco-nomical choice

The Eco-nomical choice

Because Hybrid cars use 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

Tax incentives

There’s a £3000 Plug-in car grant available, plus, 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.

Relaxing Drive

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

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.

Hybrid or Electric?

Kia Eco cars are available in electric and hybrid. Our Electric cars use a battery to drive a powerful electric motor, while our Hybrids use a combination of electric motor and conventional engine.

What is a Plug-In Hybrid car?

What is a Plug-In Hybrid car?

A plug-in hybrid gets all the benefits of a self-charging hybrid, but it has a larger battery. This means you can plug it in at home or at a public chargepoint to give you a 30-mile electric range. When that electric range is depleted, the car automatically switches to self-charging hybrid mode.
