  • How Optima Hybrid Technology Works

    By combining improved aerodynamic performance and intelligent hybrid technology, the 2018 Optima Hybrid further reduces fuel consumption. Let's see how.

  • Low speed driving

    At low driving speeds, the Optima Hybrid can enter EV (electric vehicle) mode. This provides you with excellent noise reduction and fuel economy.

  • Accelerating and climbing

    The Optima Hybrid uses both the electric and gas engines to give you some extra power when you need it most – like when you accelerate or climb hills.

  • Fixed speed driving

    If the battery’s charge becomes low, the Optima Hybrid will maintain its level of charge and continue to use both the electric and gas engines for optimal efficiency.

  • Decelerating

    The regenerative braking system harnesses energy generated during braking to recharge the battery.
