2023 Kia Hybrid Lineup


While hybrid cars aren't a new concept and have been around in one form or another for more than 100 years, it's an undeniable fact that hybrid vehicles have recently grown in popularity. Now, whenever you drive around Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Rio Rancho, NM, you can easily spot a couple handfuls of hybrid cars.

Now that you're ready to make the switch, or upgrade your current hybrid model, we at Pitre Kia have created this guide to the 2023 Kia hybrid lineup. Read on to see which you'll drive!

Reasons to Shop Hybrid

Manufacturers like Kia understand their role in creating a greener future. That's why they've made the pledge to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045. Offering a wide selection of hybrid models is the first step to accomplishing their goal.

Beyond assisting with Kia's sustainability pledge, there are other benefits that come with the territory of buying a hybrid car. These benefits include:

  • Zero tailpipe emissions when using only electric power.
  • Reduced or no time spent at the gas station.
  • Access to federal and state incentives when certain conditions are met.

These are just some of the reasons to buy hybrid. To learn more about the benefits, speak with one of our experts.


Hybrid vs Plug-in Hybrid

When you explore the 2023 Kia hybrid lineup, you'll notice a mix of traditional and plug-in hybrid configurations. While both types of hybrid cars use a mixture of an internal combustion engine and rechargeable battery to power commutes, there are some differences between these types of cars.

The biggest difference is how the battery charges.

How a Hybrid Battery Charges

How a Plug-in Hybrid Battery Charges

Hybrid cars rely on regenerative braking to recharge the battery. This is the term used when the energy that's created when you apply brake pressure is captured. It's then used to keep the battery charged as close to 100% as possible.


Benefits of Hybrid Charging:

You never have to deal with charging cables or the realization your vehicle didn't charge overnight.

Plug-in hybrid cars maintain the energy needed to power your Kia car similar to your phone and other electronics. It must be plugged into a standard outlet to charge in order to provide the energy needed to power your Kia plug-in hybrid vehicle.


Benefits of Plug-in Hybrid Charging:

Thanks to its larger battery, you may notice you can travel farther distances with fewer stops at the pump.

Now that you know more about the differences between hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, let's explore the 2023 Kia hybrid lineup.
