Kia Hybrid and Electric

Stepping into the Future of Driving

There has been a lot of talk in the automotive industry about where the future of the industry lies.  It is clear that electric and hybrid vehicles are going to play a large part in the driving experiences of people all over the world.  Many automakers are investing heavily in this technology, so they can be ready to compete in this new marketplace.  The Kia brand has already been doing this and has many intriguing options to share.  Peltier Kia Tyler, located at 4818 Troup Highway in Tyler, TX, is here to tell you all about the electric and hybrid advancements in the Kia lineup.

Why Would You Want to Drive a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle?

Are you wondering if you should enter the world of Kia hybrid and electric vehicles?  Now is a great time to take the leap.  There are many reasons why someone might want to drive an electric or hybrid car.  One of the reasons is that these technologies offer a way for drivers to be eco-friendly.  They can assist people in reducing their carbon footprint.  When you put less carbon emissions into the atmosphere, you are helping the planet by doing your part to lessen the impact of climate change.

Hybrid and electric vehicles also offer drivers a chance to save money when it comes to fuel and maintenance.  Hybrid cars often get improved fuel economy over their fully-gas counterparts, so you will need to visit the gas pump a lot less.  Electric vehicles don't have a need for fossil fuels.  Both electric and hybrid vehicles seem to need less maintenance than cars with gas engines.  Many hybrid and electric cars are also quieter on the road.


If you're constantly on the road and in need of a way to get more efficient performance out of your vehicle, a Kia hybrid model could be the answer. Kia Hybrids combine gas-powered performance with electric capability, letting you take advantage of better fuel economy ratings. Hybrid models are usually designed for drivers who have long commutes or city experiences.

Plug-In Hybrid

When you opt to drive a plug-in hybrid model, you're getting more acquainted with what makes a vehicle electric. PHEV models are similar to hybrid vehicles in how they combine gas and electric, but with the added ability to plug your car in to recharge the battery. You can even enjoy short, all-electric trips within specific ranges that help you save gas for next time.


If you frequently drive short distances or want to forgo gas completely, an electric vehicle is the right choice for you. With instantaneous torque, an efficient drive that doesn't require a standard engine, and more! You can even save on your purchase, thanks to federal tax incentives. With an ever-growing network of electric vehicle charging stations, you can charge while on the road and get back to your drive in no time!

Kia Niro Hybrid

Many customers enjoy getting behind the wheel of a Kia Niro because it offers a comfortable ride and a wealth of standard and available features.  It is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor.  They are tied to a standard six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.  Some of the features it comes standard with include wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration.

Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid

The Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid gets you the best of the electric and hybrid worlds.  It gives drivers an EPA-estimated 26-miles of all electric range.  Drivers can also enjoy the 54.5 cubic feet of cargo room you get when you buy or lease this vehicle.  Under the hood, the Niro Plug-in Hybrid has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor.  You can also get your hands on a variety of standard and available features when you get into the driver's seat of this vehicle. A Power Sunroof, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, a heated steering wheel, and Highway Driving Assist are just a few of the available features offered.

Kia Niro EV

With the expanded availability of electric charging stations, not to mention greater driving ranges, electric cars are now practical for most drivers.  The Kia Niro is one example of this phenomenon.  It gets an EPA-estimated 239-miles of all-electric range.  You can get 201 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque from the electric motor.  The Niro EV also comes available with attractive features like a Harman Kardon Premium Audio System, ventilated front seats, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and a wireless phone charger.  It also offers 53 cubic feet of cargo room.
