This allows the XCeed PHEV to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 11 seconds.

The propulsion system is linked to a six-speed gearbox with double clutch (6DCT), which ensures a more enjoyable drive than other hybrid vehicles equipped with electronic continuously variable transmissions (e-CVT).

Technology regenerative braking allows the new plug-in hybrid version to harness kinetic energy and recharge its batteries in braking and holding, further improving the overall efficiency of the system.

Finally, through these plug-in hybrid variants some high levels of efficiency (CO2 emissions from 29 g / km) and therefore a range in all-electric mode of up to 30 miles (WLTP cycle), allowing drivers to complete most of the daily trips and short trips only with electric power.

The vehicle has the new sound system Virtual Engine Sound System Kia, a alert hearing that is activated in electrical mode only at slow speeds or reverse. The system generates virtual sound levels of up to 59 dBA for notify pedestrians of the presence of the vehicle.

Stability and ride comfort

The Kia XCeed Plug-in Hybrid has implemented in the front suspension the hydraulic stops of the gasoline and diesel versions. The elastic stop is submerged in the hydraulic fluid within the shock absorbers, which provides adequate cushioning on uneven surfaces.
