Admittedly, plug-in hybrids are not cheap either, but every now and then cars appear that could become more expensive over time. This time TV Autoziņas is testing one such car. This is a Kia Xceed plug in hybrid.
According to the papers, the Kia Xceed PHEV’s power is only 105 horsepower, Acceleration is also nothing like 11 seconds to a hundred. But from a subjective point of view, the car accelerates and drives very politely. This is because Kia shyly hides the full power of the car. Together with the 45-kilowatt electric motor, it already has 141 horsepower, which is delivered to the front wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. However, you can enter the mushroom forest with such a hirbid – it will not get caught behind the roots and the turning radius is also unexpectedly small. With electricity Xceed can travel up to 58 kilometers, – 1.7 l per 100 km. Watch more in the TV Auto news story.
