Ceed

Kia Motors Europe is on its way to accomplish the 2020 Hyundai-Kia Eco Car plan schedule of electrified models with the addition of a new Ceed estate plug-in hybrid model.

We read on Autocar that the Ceed plug-in will share the same Plug-in Hybrid powertrain as the Niro PHEV and is scheduled to go on sale “in the second half of 2019” in wagon form.

With a 139bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to a 59kW electric motor and 8.4kWh battery pack, a Ceed estate with the same powertrain should match, or even beat, the Niro’s 29g/km of CO2 and 217mpg of the outgoing NEDC economy standard.

“We are going to introduce it for the wagon, and then decide if it makes sense on other body-types,” says Kia Europe’s marketing chief Artur Martins.

Production will be localised at Kia’s Slovakia plant, the first Kia plug-in hybrid vehicle to be build in Europe.
