The Best Plug-in Hybrids of 2022

Discover the Power of Kia Plug-in Hybrids

You’ll find the best plug-in hybrids at Kia of Orange Park in Jacksonville, FL. Nissan is now offering the plug-in hybrid Sorento and Niro SUVs, as well as all-electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, and gas-powered vehicles. Stop by today and find out how a Kia plug-in hybrid can save you big money at the gas pump and with federal and state incentives.

What is a Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)?

Hybrid vehicles and plug-in hybrids, or PHEV vehicles, offer the best of two worlds—gas-powered and electric. Both types of hybrids are capable of running on either gas or electric power, but there are some differences between the two.

The main difference is that a hybrid vehicle is powered by both a gas-fueled internal combustion engine and a battery powered electric motor that can work independently or simultaneously. A plug-in hybrid vehicle is powered mainly by an electric motor and will use its internal-combustion engine only as a back up if the battery runs out of power.

The Advantages of Plug-in Hybrids

One of the greatest advantages of a PHEV over an electric vehicle (EV) is the ability to go wherever you want without having to stop to charge up when your electric battery runs out of power. When an EV runs out of juice, you have to find a charger and wait around until it recharges.

When a PHEV battery runs out, it drives like a conventional hybrid car, using the gas-powered engine with only minimal assistance from the electric motor. The Kia Niro and Kia Sorento PHEVs bridge the distance between a gas-powered vehicle, a fully-electric vehicle, and a hybrid. You get the best of all three worlds.

Discover the 2022 Kia Niro

The 2022 Kia Niro offers an EPA-estimated 26 miles of all-electric range, an EPA-estimated 105MPGe combined, and an up to 560-mile EPA-estimated total driving range. That can mean a savings of up to $4,750 over the course of five years. The Niro is also eligible for up to $4,543 Federal Tax Credit and other state incentives.

Besides saving its owners loads of money, the Niro also has all the style, space, and versatility of a gas-powered compact SUV. Different trims offer a combination of leather and cloth seating trim, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, a wireless phone charger, and Fog Lights.

It also adds standard and available driver-assist technologies including Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Enhanced Auto Emergency Braking with Cyclist Detection, and Lane Follow Assist.
