Mar 03/09/2019 – A break and a crossover.
If all manufacturers talk about electrifying their ranges, not all of them work at the same pace. Kia has already two hybrid models rechargeable in its range, the Niro and Optima SW, he announced today that he will have next year 2 additional models. First the break version of its compact, the Ceed, and then its new crossover version, the XCeed.
The features are unsurprising, since unless I'm mistaken, Kia has taken over the powertrain that we know under the hood of the Niro plug-in hybrid (and the Hyundai Ioniq). The gasoline engine is a 1600, it is associated with a 44.5 kW electric machine, to give a total available power of 141 hp, with a torque of 265 Nm. The break Ceed PHEV accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.8 seconds, while the XCeed will need 11 seconds.
The homologation is underway, but Kia hopes to achieve autonomy in zero-emission mode of 60 km with its break Ceed rechargeable hybrid. We will check … But we will also think that other plug-in hybrids are expected at Kia next year. The Ceed sedan could also be launched with this same powertrain, and we also expect a rechargeable hybrid version of the big Sorento.
