In light of Earth Day, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com put together lists of some of the most eco-friendly vehicles to give drivers an idea of which models to drive if they’re looking to help save the environment. Four Kia vehicles were found on three lists this year including the Kia Niro, Kia Optima Hybrid, Kia Optima PHEV and Kia Soul EV.
“We’re very proud of the strides the Kia brand has been making to achieve its goal of increasing electrification and improving overall fuel economy by 2020,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, Product Planning, KMA. “Having four of our vehicles recognized by Kelley Blue Book as top ‘eco-friendly’ choices validates our priorities to the environment as well as our efforts to maximize affordability.”
One list – 10 best hybrid cars under $40,000 – included both the all-new 2017 Kia Niro and the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid. The second list – top plug-in hybrids under $40,000 – honored the 2017 Kia Optima PHEV, which has an EPA-estimated 29 miles of electric range. The third list – five best electric cars under $40,000 – highlighted the popular 2017 Kia Soul EV.
