Official sources from Kia Motors have made it clear that the 2011 Optima Hybrid is a non-compromise vehicle!


Expected to legitimize the Korean automaker as an eco-friendly company, the variant boasts of being way different from many other gas-electric vehicles. For instance, you doesn’t need to compromise on your cargo space for the compact lithium-ion battery pack.

Besides, Optima comes up with more standard equipments than the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, including a rear backup camera, rear spoiler, auto-down front windows for the driver and passenger, a cooling glovebox, compass and Kia’s brand new infotainment system.

Under its hood, the 2011 Optima hybrid features the carmaker’s highly-advanced hybrid powertrain technology that enables the car to deliver up to 35 MPG in city driving and 40 MPG on the highway. Kia’s in-house developed hybrid system known as “full parallel hybrid system” allows you to drive the car at full-electric drive mode with speeds of up to 62 miles per hour.

So, how many of our viewers are willing to spend $26,500 to grab the hybrid?
