Green is the new black – the future of electric vehicles

This story is sponsored by Kia Canada.

Electric vehicles are the optimal solution for people who want to reduce their carbon footprint without relying solely on a bicycle or public transport. With Toronto’s unpredictable weather, riding a bike or going to the office isn’t always the most convenient or enjoyable option.

Fortunately, Kia’s new 2022 Sorento PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) offers people a safe and sustainable means of getting around.

While Kia’s technologically advanced vehicles have always garnered rave reviews in the automotive sector, the company has recently shifted its focus. The company’s new slogan “Movement that inspires” underlines that movement is at the center of human development.

“From our new design philosophy to our sustainable mobility solutions – everything we do as a brand is to inspire our drivers with every movement,” says Michael Kopke, Director of Marketing at Kia Canada.

In addition to making vehicles that help people connect with others and share new experiences, Kia is committed to greener mobility services. Going forward, Kia will also use clean energy and recyclable materials in production.

The Sorento PHEV and HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) are the first of seven all-new, electrified vehicles to be launched in Canada by 2025 and are now at dealerships.

For those intimidated by the idea of ​​owning an all-electric vehicle, a PHEV is a great place to start. It uses rechargeable batteries to run on electricity until the battery reaches a certain state of charge. When the battery runs low, the vehicle automatically switches to hybrid mode, which uses a combination of fuel and electricity.

In Canada, the federal government plans to abandon gasoline cars by 2035 and replace them with zero-emission vehicles. To encourage people to make this important transition, the government is offering green incentives to those who trade in their current vehicle for a green one, electric ride. These discounts vary by province, but the state incentive is $ 2,500 for a PHEV and $ 5,000 for a battery electric vehicle (BEV) like the Kia Niro EV or the upcoming BEV, the Kia EV6.

By 2030, 40 percent of Kia’s global sales will come from its more sustainable models such as specialty electric vehicles, HEVs and PHEVs.

“With its three rows of seats and its unbelievable fuel efficiency, the Sorento PHEV is a perfect price-performance ratio for a family vehicle that makes you feel good,” says Kopke. “The plug-in hybrid option ensures a safe feeling when entering the green, as it enables an estimated all-electric range of up to 51 kilometers and a seamless transition to hybrid mode. It’s the perfect vehicle for both everyday life and family road trips. “

The brand new 4th generation Sorento PHEV is also equipped with the latest safety technology from Kia: Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). This includes the standard forward collision warning, which assists the driver when braking to avoid a collision. The vehicle also has a standard lane departure warning system that follows the lane markings recognized by the system and provides steering inputs to keep the vehicle in the center of the lane.

The price of the Sorento PHEV starts at $ 44,995, with no government incentives like the federal discount of $ 2,500.
