New Kia Hybrid & Electric Lineup

All You Need to Know Abour Kia's Lineup of Green Cars in Spartanburg

Hybrid and Electric Kia Cars at Benson Kia

At our dealership in Spartanburg, we have several hybrid and all-electric vehicles for you to choose from.  With the Kia Niro crossover or the Kia Sorento SUV, you have options whether you are looking for a low-profile commuter car or an SUV for the whole family.  Electric technology has come a long way in recent years, allowing for more power and range on the electric motors.  Owning a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or all-electric vehicle (EV) is easier than ever.  Charging a vehicle is as simple as charging a smartphone, and public charging stations are available throughout Greer, Simpsonville, Shelby, NC, and Forest City.  We even have our very own charging station right here at our dealership for you to use.  If you are ready to say goodbye to gas, carbon emissions, and oil changes forever, explore how a Kia hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or EV can work with your lifestyle.

Kia Hybrid Vehicles

Our hybrid vehicles, the Niro Hybrid crossover, and Sorento Hybrid SUV are the perfect way to get started with electrification.  A hybrid vehicle has an electric motor that supplements the gas engine to help increase your fuel efficiency and lower your trips to the gas station.  No charging is required because the system is all internal and runs on its own.  The gas engine charges the battery that runs the motor, so you don't ever have to worry about running out of battery or plugging in.  Hybrid engines also produce more power, so your crossover or SUV is more capable than ever.

Kia Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

A plug-in hybrid is sort of in-between a hybrid and an all-electric vehicle.  You still have a gas engine, but more emphasis is placed on the electric motor.  It's possible to drive short commutes 100-percent on the electric engine, and you can charge the battery by plugging into a regular wall outlet overnight or at a fast-charging station to continue driving on electricity only.  Once your battery runs out, the backup gas engine will kick in automatically, so you don't ever have to worry about running out of battery power as long as you fill up and charge when needed.  Right now, we offer the Niro PHEV crossover as a plug-in hybrid option.

Kia Electric Vehicle (EV)

If you are ready to be completely rid of gas and oil changes forever, then the Niro EV crossover is for you.  An EV has no gas engine and runs completely off the battery.  You can get over 230-miles of range on one charge, and you charge the battery by plugging into a regular wall outlet at home or using a fast-charging station like the one at our dealership.  Electric is no longer associated with sacrificing power for efficiency.  The Niro EV produces 201-horsepower and 291-pound-feet of torque, and self-charges with regenerative braking which helps maximize your range.

Benefits of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles in Greenville

With incentives and tax breaks to help make hybrid and electric vehicles as affordable as possible, you can take advantage of special deals and promotions to get the most out of your electrified vehicle purchase.  One of the first benefits drivers can think of with hybrid, and electric vehicles is the fuel efficiency.  Other benefits include lower emissions, reducing your carbon footprint, less maintenance for electric vehicles, and tax breaks or incentives.  One big benefit many people don't think about is that the new electric technology is more powerful than conventional gas engines.  You'll find that hybrids can typically produce more horsepower and have more capability than regular gas vehicles.  As we transition to a cleaner automotive marketplace, we want to make sure drivers can afford the new technology and take advantage of all the benefits.
