Attract all the attention. The Optima Plug-In Hybrid combines meticulously crafted details like aerodynamic lines, uniquely sleek wheels, and an innovative active air-flap embedded in the grille. They're designed to work together to maximize fuel economy, so you don't have to choose between form and function.
At first glance, you'll notice the smooth, sculpted exterior lines. On first drive, you'll notice how the lower resistance provides a quieter, more comfortable drive. And the first time you plug in to recharge, you'll notice just how rarely you have to do it at all, given the all-electric estimated range of 29 miles. The exceptionally low drag co-efficient helps maximize the Optima Plug-In Hybrid's overall efficiency.
Style that goes the distance. From its captivating front end to its aerodynamic alloy wheels, the 2018 Optima Plug-In Hybrid is the perfect fusion of elegant lines, sporty style, and unique detailing. An active air-flap isn't just stylish, but equally innovative, automatically opening and closing based on vehicle speed, engine temperature, and airflow.
A daring and sophisticated front end, featuring Kia's distinctive "tiger-nose" grille in high-gloss black, along with available LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights.
It's standout style from every angle. Modern alloy wheels offer both sleek styling and improved airflow.
The sharply-edged bumper and vibrant LED taillights deliver an eye-catching departure.
Insider's advantage. One step in and you'll appreciate the spacious, comfort-focused interior that features standard supple leather seating with heat, available ventilated front seats, and available panoramic sunroof. Driver-oriented innovations like Smart Key and the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) give you added convenience every time you drive.
Every interior detail was designed with the driver in mind. Switch from hybrid to EV mode at the touch of a button. Access information from the 8-inch touch-screen display, or with your voice. We've also added an auto-dimming rear mirror and a heated steering wheel for refined comfort behind the wheel. All standard on the 2018 Optima Plug-In Hybrid.
The Optima Plug-In Hybrid panoramic sunroof offers expansive sights and fresh air on command. Plus, the power sunshade provides just the right amount of coverage.
Hold your ground with the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB). It helps keep you in position on a hill or in stop-and-go traffic.
Everyday driving shouldn't have to be ordinary. Take a seat covered in soft leather, available with multi-way power adjustments for the front row. Enjoy ample headroom, legroom, and shoulder room in every seat. And relax in the cabin extra-quiet thanks to noise-reducing insulation.
Illuminate the cabin with available LED reading lights. And with the sunglass holder overhead, your shades are always within reach.
Front passengers can relax in customized seating with the available 10-way power-adjustable seat, including 2-way lumbar support.
The heritage of hybrid. At the foundation of Kia's EV and Hybrid lineup is the Optima Hybrid. Sleek, efficiently packaged, and now updated to be smarter than ever before. And with the same Parallel Hybrid System as the Plug-In, the 2017 Optima Hybrid offers a fun driving experience that sets it apart from other hybrids.
The 2.0-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, now in a more compact package, is designed to help maximize fuel economy. Charge up every time you slow down: during deceleration, regenerative braking uses that kinetic energy to recharge the electric motor's battery.
The Optima Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid were re-engineered together to deliver a high-density lithium polymer battery with more energy and power. Plus, the Plug-In Hybrid's battery is cleverly packaged in the trunk floor to make optimal use of cargo space.
Power up from virtually anywhere. The Level 1 (120V) charger uses the same wall outlet as your home appliances and is ideal for overnight charging.

Strength in wonders. We've integrated advanced technology in every facet of the Optima Plug-In Hybrid design. And its safety is no different. Engineered with reliable active and passive systems built to protect, the Optima Plug-In Hybrid is peace of mind on every journey.
Your protection is our priority. The Optima Plug-In Hybrid is built strong from the inside out. With advanced Iso-Structure™ construction that features 53% advanced, high-strength steel for improved rigidity. But protection doesn't stop at the frame: front, seat-mounted side-curtain, and driver's knee-height airbags are ready to deploy when needed.
he Optima Plug-In Hybrid uses over 50% Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), helping to substantially increase body rigidity. The advanced airbag system features dual front, front-seat-mounted-side, and full-length side curtain airbags. High-tech sensors can detect the level of an impact and presence of a front passenger, helping to control airbag inflation.
Maintain control when it matters most. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps you keep on course, while Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) helps maintain steering control when driving under adverse road conditions. Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your vehicle in place as you move off an incline.
Advanced braking for improved efficiency: Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) adjusts braking, front to rear, depending on load. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) helps reduce skidding. And the High Line Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tire pressure in all four tires.
Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC), allows you to set a customized distance from the vehicle in front of you. The available Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) activates and alerts you when your Optima detects a potential impact, encouraging you to decelerate.
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) System offers convenient visual and audible signals to help warn you of objects not in your field of view. Lane Change Assist (LCA) warns you when it detects a vehicle that's quickly approaching.
The Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system uses radar to automatically activate the brakes when detecting a potential collision. If you veer from your lane, the available Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) will warn you with a visual alert and chime.
