2022 Kia EV and Hybrid Lineup | Wesley Chapel, FL
If you’re considering making the switch to a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or electric SUV, the 2022 Kia lineup is a great place to start. You’ll find a variety of efficient vehicles from Kia, offering varying degrees of style, luxury, and technology.
The 2022 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is one of the more budget-friendly options in the lineup. It has three trim levels available — LXS, EX, and EX Premium — and is available in a variety of attractive colors. Its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and Full Parallel Hybrid System work to offer a total driving range of 560 miles, 105 MPGe combined, and 46 MPG combined.
While this model is the most cost-friendly, it still comes with many appealing standard features. The standard infotainment system is equipped with Kia Connect so you can remotely lock or unlock the doors, start the vehicle, and more. Wireless Android Auto™ and wireless Apple CarPlay® let you easily use your favorite compatible smartphone apps directly on the 8-inch color touch-screen display (which can be upgraded to a 10.25-inch display on the EX Premium model).
Taking it one step further in the world of eco-friendliness is the 2022 Kia Niro EV. This fully electric SUV is the most affordable EV from Kia. It comes in two trims, EX and EX Premium, which both offer up to 239 miles of range.
The differences between the two Niro EV models come in the form of various amenities. On the outside, the EX Premium gets a power sunroof and LED rear combination lights. But that’s not saying the EX is without; it still comes with useful standard features like front fog lights, roof rails, and heated outside mirrors (power-folding). Inside, both models come with the cutting-edge Harman Kardon® premium surround sound system with Clari-Fi™ and eight speakers.
If you need a bit more room in your hybrid SUV, go for the 2022 Kia Sorento Hybrid. The Sorento was recently redesigned, giving it an ultra-modern look that is both bold and sophisticated. Available in two trims, S and EX, the Sorento Hybrid comes with a turbo 1.6-liter engine and Full Parallel Hybrid System to offer up to 39 mpg in the city on FWD models.
Thanks to that turbo hybrid powertrain, you can expect a more thrilling drive and a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. Inside, the standard is a 10.25-inch touch-screen infotainment system with navigation and Mapcare. You’ll also get standard SiriusXM® satellite radio, smartphone connectivity, and seven charging USB ports.
The more efficient Sorento is the 2022 Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid, which blends its gas-powered performance with electricity. When fully fueled, you can expect to achieve up to 460 miles of range and 32 miles of all-electric range when fully charged. This SUV is also quite spirited, offering up a combined 261 horsepower.
In addition to being efficient, the Sorento PHEV has the most passenger room and second-row legroom of any plug-in hybrid SUV available. The interior features second-row captain’s chairs and standard third-row seating, meaning you have room for up to seven. The standard Smart Power Liftgate will automatically open when it detects the key fob, making loading and unloading cargo simple.
The most advanced EV in the Kia lineup is the all-new 2022 Kia EV6. This exciting model is available in five trims and offers varied performance and efficiency. The all-wheel drive models conjure up a thrilling 320 horsepower while traveling 274 miles on a single charge. However, the most efficient models with rear-wheel drive can go as far as 310 miles.
The EV6’s interior is truly futuristic, with dual 12.3-inch panoramic connectivity displays greeting you as you sit in the eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat with two-way power lumbar support. Other tech features and amenities include recycled fabric and vegan leather seating materials, a wireless phone charger, a Wi-Fi hotspot, heated front seats, and an available 14-speaker Meridian Premium Audio system.
