Kia’s Ecodynamic Vehicles

Eco Dynamic is a sub-brand of Kia Motors that focuses on energy-efficient vehicles. This includes a wide range of hybrids, plug-in hybrids, as well as fully electric models. Below, we take a closer look at each of these Eco Dynamic options.

Hybrid vehicles
Kia’s hybrid vehicles, as the name suggests, run on both gas as well as electricity (EV mode). The battery of these cars needs to be charged after the battery runs out of juice before the vehicle can start using the engine. Some models include the Kia Niro Crossover and Optima Sedan. A spectacular feature related to hybrid vehicles is that they have much better fuel efficiency compared to their gas-based counterparts. Besides, if you are someone who is switching from complete gas reliance, then hybrid models from Kia are the most accessible entry points for you. These cars also have a high EPA-estimated total driving range.

Plug-in hybrid
With plug-in hybrid vehicles, you have the freedom to select the EV mode whenever you feel like or as you require it. You can either charge your battery or choose to fill up your tank, giving you the freedom to select how your car runs. In some states, Kia hybrids are even eligible for a high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) decal. The Kia plug-in hybrids include Niro PHEV Crossover and Optima PHEV Sedan, providing buyers with the option to either go all-electric or run on gas.

Fully electric
Eco Dynamic, fully electric vehicles from Kia include the Niro EV as well as the 2020 Soul EV, which is yet to be released. With these variants, you no longer need to rely on gas and can wave goodbye to gas pumps forever.

Fully electric cars from the Eco Dynamic range come with plenty of benefits for buyers. For instance, if you buy an electric car, you may be eligible for up to $10,000 in Federal as well as state tax incentives. In some states, you can even go for a high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) decal. Such vehicles also provide you access to a full EV powertrain that's extremely quiet and often described as near-silent.
