  • How Optima Hybrid Technology Works

    Outfitted with a motor that runs off a long-range battery, the 2017 Optima Plug-In Hybrid has the ability to switch between an electric and gas engine to provide greater fuel economy and more peace of mind. Let’s explore how.

  • Low speed driving

    At low driving speeds, the Plug-In Hybrid enters EV (electric vehicle) mode. This provides you with excellent noise reduction and fuel economy.

  • Accelerating and climbing

    The Optima Plug-In 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 Plug-In 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.

Made for staying informed

All the information you need to stay efficient in one convenient display. The available multimedia interface1 informs you of your fuel economy, your gas or energy usage and much more.

Made for just in case

Made for watching your back

The Optima Hybrid is always monitoring for potential dangers. Active safety features, like electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, electronic brake distribution, hill-start assist control and brake assist all come standard4.
