It’s performance tailored to you. HEV mode delivers the efficiency and refinement of the Optima Hybrid, while EV mode lets you go fully electric—with an estimated range of 0-29 miles to tackle your daily commute. And named a Transitional Zero Emission Vehicle (TZEV) by the California Air Resource Board, the Optima Plug-In Hybrid is eligible for a High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) decal in CA and other select states. So, you can use HOV lanes even when you’re driving solo.
We took the intelligent combination of a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor and a Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine—and added the power to go all-electric. With an EPA-est. 103 MPGe, the 2019 Optima Plug-In Hybrid proves that efficiency and convenience can go hand in hand.
With more drivers turning to PHEVs and EVs, public charging is more accessible than ever. From the UVO eco feature that shows you nearby charging stations to the ever-growing infrastructure with more than 45,000 Level 2 (240 V) public fast charger outlets nationwide, you can always find a charge.
The Optima Plug-In Hybrid features systems made to increase efficiency and stretch fuel even farther. The engine and battery are re-engineered to help enhance fuel economy, and the active air flap provides clean airflow that cuts down on drag. From design to drivetrain, the Optima Plug-In Hybrid is confidence on all roads.
The Level 1 (120 V) charger uses the same wall outlet as your home appliances. The Level 2 (240 V) charger offers a full charge in less than three hours.
