Kia Motors has revealed the all-new Kia Sorento Plug-in Hybrid, an ultra-low emissions version of the brand’s flagship SUV. The Sorento Plug-in Hybrid is the second electrified model in the all-new Sorento line-up, and sits alongside the low-emissions Sorento Hybrid. The new variant combines a turbocharged petrol engine with a high capacity battery pack and high output electric motor, giving drivers the ability to complete shorter drives on all-electric, zero-emissions power.
Following the global unveil of the new fourth generation Sorento in March, Kia has announced pricing and specification information for the UK market. The Sorento is the flagship for Kia’s European SUV line-up, alongside the Stonic, Niro and Sportage.

The overall length has been extended by 10mm more than its predecessor, while the wheelbase is up 35mm to 2,815mm.
