Kia announces pricing for two new plug-in hybrids

Electrified version of the XCeed and Ceed Sportswagon are now available.

Kia has announced the pricing and specs for its new XCeed crossover and Ceed Sportswagon estate plug-in hybrids, which are on sale from today.

The two new versions feature the same plug-in hybrid powertrain as the electrified Niro – combining a 1.6-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and an 8.9kWh battery pack to produce a combined 139bhp and 265Nm of torque. Each is paired to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, while regenerative braking features on both models to maximise efficiency.

The XCeed promises to be able to travel up to 36 miles on electricity, with the spacious Ceed Sportswagon managing a mile further. Each can be charged in two hours and 15 minutes using a 3.3kW charger.

They are the first plug-in hybrids to be produced in Europe, while styling differences separate them from the regular car. Each features a closed version of Kia’s ‘tiger-nose’ front grille, along with eco badging and a charging port in the front left wing of each car.

Inside, revised hybrid dials feature, along with a new 10.25-inch touchscreen coming with various connected services. Through the system drivers can find vacant electric car chargers, along with scheduling the times they want their car to charge to maximise the lowest energy tariffs where available. It’s worth noting that the models are less practical than their petrol and diesel siblings.

Prices for the XCeed start from £30,695, which is available in ‘3’ and First Edition grades. Standard equipment includes LED headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. First Edition models offer park assist, a panoramic sunroof and an electric tailgate to name but a few features.
