Design

Luxurious and balanced.

The Optima Hybrid unites elegant automotive design and cutting-edge hybrid technology. Aerodynamic bumper and trunk lid designs help reduce wind drag and combine for a more luxurious and balanced look — test drive one today.

Design

Character, up close.

With dynamic front and rear bumpers, and an exclusive alloy-wheel design, the Optima Hybrid is full of unique touches that add character and refinement to the vehicle.

Design

Designed to flow.

With the Optima Hybrid, efficiency isn’t simply about a hybrid powertrain. In order to help you make better use of fuel, the exterior itself is designed to lend a helping hand. The side airflow vent reduces drag, allowing air to pass freely through it.

Design

Open-air driving.

The available panoramic sunroof lets you enjoy a feeling of spaciousness and fills the cabin with fresh air. It features a front panel that tilts and slides for an open-air driving experience.

Performance

How Hybrid works.

The Optima Hybrid utilizes two systems: an electric traction motor that works with a lithium polymer battery and a 4-cylinder gas engine. The Optima Hybrid will be powered by one or both, depending which type of driving you’re doing — Build yours now.

Performance

Horsepower and efficiency.

With a total combined 199 horsepower from the electric motor and gas engine, paired with the lightweight 270-volt lithium polymer battery, Optima Hybrid provides excellent performance and delivers exceptional highway fuel efficiency.

Performance

On display: fuel savings.

Keep track of your Optima’s fuel efficiency with a vivid display that shows the battery being charged, your fuel economy, the eco-friendliness of your last drive, and additional performance information.

Safety

Engineered to protect.

The Optima Hybrid was engineered to help keep you safe, protected and in control in all kinds of driving situations. It comes with a full array of standard safety features, including six airbags, four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes and is wrapped in a rigid, reinforced body structure for added protection in the event of a collision.

Safety

Enhance your view.

An available sonar system is concealed in the rear bumpers. When you’re parking, it gives an audible warning if it detects certain objects close to your vehicle. Optima Hybrid’s available rearview camera enhances your awareness even further by displaying a wide-angle view of the area behind you whenever you shift into reverse2.
