Battery Electric

A Kia electric car or SUV is propelled by an electric motor, and uses a rechargeable battery as its only power source. You can charge your battery-electric vehicle at home or at any of Missouri's growing public charging stations.

A hybrid powertrain, which is a parallel hybrid system, switches between gas and electric power – or uses both together – to help maximize efficiency at all times. To enhance power, Sport mode gives you adjustable regenerative braking levels, increased throttle response and more.

Plug-in Hybrids

A plug-in hybrid uses an electric motor for a quiet ride and no tailpipe emissions, but can also use gas in case your battery runs out. You can go all-electric when you want, or go plug-in hybrid for options. The choice is yours!

Spend less on maintenance with an EV.

Did you know that electric vehicles require less maintenance than traditional gas-engine vehicles?

Kia EV owners save an average of $110 on maintenance in the first year of ownership, and an average of $700+ over the first six years of ownership compared to non-EV vehicles.

Kia Maintenance Plans offer a variety of services that are ideal for maintaining your Kia EV. Some specific maintenance requirements for an EV include:

• Battery health monitoring

• Tire rotation and pressure checks (proper maintenance can help prolong the life of tires on all cars, including EVs)

• High voltage system coolant replacement

• EV comprehensive "multipoint" inspection
