Kia Sportage PHEV: prices, specification and EV range

Kia Sportage PHEV

Kia has confirmed the new Sportage plug-in hybrid (PHEV) will be priced from £38,395 and offer a 43-mile zero-emission range.

The new model, which arrives in April, will attract 8% benefit-in-kind for the 2022-23 tax year.

Using a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and an electric motor, the powertrain delivers 265PS and can accelerate the car from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds.

All Sportage PHEV models feature all-wheel-drive and have CO2 emissions of 25g/km.

Kia says the car can achieve fuel economy of 252mpg, and has an electric range of up to 48 miles in the city.

The car’s 13.8kWh battery can be charged in less than two hours, using a 7.2kW charger. It’s located underneath the car, to minimise the impact on passenger space.

A luggage capacity of 540 litres is achieved with the rear seats in place. The rear seats can be folded in a 40:20:40 split, providing up to 1,715 litres of cargo space.

The Sportage PHEV is available across the GT-Line, 3, 4 and GT-Line S grades.
