The new Kia Sorento plug-in hybrid has been unveiled to complete the line-up.

Kia says this is the most environmentally friendly Sorento they have ever made with excellent low emissions to benefit business users.

The all-new Sorento was unveiled earlier this year with diesel and self-charging hybrid versions available.

And this new plug-in-variant is now the flagship of the Sorento SUV range.

There are three trim levels to choose from prices start at £44,995.

Stylish contract hire car

The power for this stylish contract hire car comes from a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a high-capacity battery and an electric motor.

Kia says that drivers will be able to enjoy their average daily commute using the all-electric function with zero emissions.

One of the main attractions for the new plug-in hybrid model is that Kia says that this fourth generation of Sorento has been designed to accommodate an electrified powertrain from the very beginning.

The all-new platform delivers a larger body and offers versatility and practicality – with plenty of space for seven adults.

Power is delivered using a six-speed automatic gearbox which will deliver responsive acceleration.
