“How does a 2018 KIA Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle work?”

 

The workings of a 2018 Kia Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle is relatively straightforward. The system has both a battery and an ICE. During initial acceleration or low-speed operation the car is entirely powered by its battery. When it needs to accelerate uphill or quickly both the ICE and the battery will work together. During cruise control it will be entirely contingent on the ICE engine, and in deceleration regenerative braking will recharge the battery. Because the Kia is a plug-in hybrid, it has a large rechargeable battery which is capable of going 60 km without stopping!
