Are you under the impression that hybrid vehicles
are the only low emission producing cars?
If so, it might not be your fault since many auto manufactures have
painted this picture in a way. Kiefer Kia is here to tell
you that brands (i.e., Kia) are starting to buck this trend.
Let's look at the 2012 Rio, for example. Emitting less than
85g/km, it produces less pollution than all other non-Electric Vehicles
available on the market. And, with 30 mpg city/ 40 mpg hwy, it also ranks up
there with EVs for gas mileage. The important disparity between the new
Kia Rio and Electric Vehicles and hybrids, would be the
sticker price. You could be drving a new Kia Rio for as little as $13,400. That's quite a bargain if you ask us,
especially when you consider the fuel savings.
Fortunatly, there are even more Kia vehicles with these stats.
Kia has made it their priority to create vehicles
that are enjoyable to drive, efficient, aesthetically appealing and reliable, but also
very environmentally friendly. After analyzing Kia's technologies
and tactics available in their models, UK magazine What
Car? has decided the South Korean automaker worthy of their
prestigious Low Carbon Award.
Is this a good representative of the new
Kia? The answer is yes and no.
While these new initiatives and awards are great, its actually not the
first time What Cars? has been involved with Kia. The Kia
Picanto (not currently available in the U.S.) was distinguished at the magazine's
2011 Green Awards, this past summer as well.
