Using a combination of efficient technologies and eco-friendly production methods, Kia has solidified its reputation as an environmentally responsible carmaker. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly car, Kia should be at the top of your list. Here’s why a new Kia is one of the most environmentally friendly cars you can buy.
While many automakers will brag about their eco-friendly cars, Kia knows that a truly environmentally responsible approach involves eco-friendly production. From the eco-conscious design to the low-emissions production and distribution process, Kia makes some of the least harmful vehicles on the market. Kia vehicles are also made of recyclable parts, which makes disposal of a Kia eco-friendly as well.
In an effort to reduce carbon emissions as much as possible, Kia has implemented a number of efficient technologies into its new vehicle lineup. Idle Stop and Go (ISG), an available feature on a number of new Kia models, stops the engine when it is idling at a stop and automatically re-ignites it when you let your foot off of the brake pedal. Many new Kia models are also equipped with turbocharging and direct-fuel injection, which increases both performance and fuel efficiency.
Hybrid and Zero-Emissions Motors
The new Kia Optima can be equipped a hybrid engine that uses electric power to increase fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Able to travel up to 62 mph using only battery power, the Kia Optima Hybrid makes it possible to enjoy zero-emissions driving until the battery runs out. Genuine zero-emissions driving is right around the corner for Kia, with the Kia Ray electric-vehicle and Mohave fuel-cell vehicle serving as opportunities for Kia to test and refine zero-emissions technologies.
By donating to and showing support for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and World Environment Day, Kia is striving to enhance its commitment to environmental sustainability. Kia’s eco-friendly mindset can also be seen in its participation in the 2012 Kia Expo in Yeosu, South Korea.
