If you are shopping for your future vehicle, navigating the different labels of vehicles can be a bit tricky. Thankfully, it’s more a case of needing to remember what everything stands for than anything else. So, what is the difference between EV, PHEV, and Hybrid models? Let’s check it out!

What are the Kia engine options?

To begin, the EV stands for Electric Vehicle. If you drive one of these, such as the Kia Niro EV, you won’t have to stop at a traditional gas station, as this type of vehicle does not have a gas engine. Instead, it is powered by a battery that you then charge once it runs out of juice. Examples of EV models in the Kia lineup include the Kia Niro EV and the Kia Soul EV.

Step into a Kia PHEV model and you’ll find your vehicle primarily powered by a battery, similar to the EV models. However, PHEV models, also known as Plug-In Hybrids, also have a small gas tank to back them up. So, you will primarily charge your vehicle like an EV model, but occasionally you’ll need to run to the regular gas station to fill up that gas tank. Think of it as an EV model supported by a gas tank. Examples of these types of models are the Kia Niro PHEV.

Hybrid models are similar to the PHEV models, however instead of primarily running on battery power, these models primarily run on a regular gas tank, but they also have a small battery that helps give you more miles to the gallon. So, gas, but supported by a battery. Examples of these models are the Kia Sorento Hybrid.

And then, of course, you have the regular gas models that are just a gas engine, such as the Kia Sedona, Kia K5, etc.

Telluride, Niro Win Drivers’ Choice Awards

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Remember when you first watched MotorWeek? The host, John Davis, telling you about the latest vehicles as they go through the slalom or along the roads near their Maryland studio.

They are still on the air! They’re giving awards. And, Kia has been recognized with two of MotorWeek’s Drivers’ Choice Awards for 2020!

The award-winning Kia Telluride was named Best Large Utility, while the Niro took home the Best Eco-Friendly award.

MotorWeek’s editors conduct upwards of 150 car and truck reviews annually, evaluating vehicles on an array of factors, including price, features, performance, accommodations, fuel economy, reliability records, and resale value. The Drivers’ Choice awards are based on these thorough evaluations.

The results are simple. The Telluride is the finest three-row midsize SUV for families. Not just for the 7-8 seat capacity inside, but of its overall value across the lineup. The Telluride’s powerful V6 is designed for the long haul- somewhere beyond the Twin Cities. It also offers a superb ride and overall comfort across all three rows.

For those looking for a better hedge on fuel economy, the Niro is the right vehicle for you. Its versatile crossover body accommodates up to five people or up to 54.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Its Hybrid driveline is designed for efficiency while delivering solid performance for across Mankato or the drive out to Sioux Falls.

Two special vehicles to fit your lifestyle. Both winners in the eyes of MotorWeek. That is a duo you can’t go wrong with. Check out the Niro and Telluride at Kia of Mankato. Take one for a test drive and see why these two are winners in your eyes.
