IRVINE, Calif. Jan. 7, 2015 – Carrying over in the 2015 model year, the Optima Hybrid continues to offer an impressive collection of features, adding an efficient hybrid drivetrain to the already alluring package of its conventionally powered sedan sibling. Available in Hybrid and Hybrid EX trims, the 2015 Optima Hybrid brings increased efficiency to the brand's best-selling model without compromising on eye-catching appeal and refined convenience.

Both trims include a 47 HP electric motor, a powerful 47 kW lithium polymer battery and a 2.4-liter engine that produces 199 horsepower and 154 lb.-ft. of torque and is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The Optima Hybrid achieves an EPA estimated 36 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 38 mpg combined1, while the Hybrid EX model delivers an EPA estimated 35 mpg city, 39 mpg highway and 37 mpg combined1. Additional vents in the Optima Hybrid's front bumper increase airflow and reduce drag. More aerodynamic 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels on the Hybrid and Hybrid EX trims, respectively, reduce weight and drag and enhance the hybrid's efficiency proposition.


The 2015 Optima Hybrid features a unique front grille design, Hybrid-exclusive front LED lighting and fender badges as well as technological improvements and an array of amenities that are even more upscale and high-tech than last year's model. New for the 2015 model year, the acoustic laminated windshield now comes standard on the Hybrid EX and optional on Hybrid trim – as part of the Hybrid Convenience package – which also includes a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat, LED front positioning lights and upgrades to ÚVO eServices2 such as Geo-fencing, Speed Alert, Curfew Alert and Driving Score3. With a push-button ignition, auto-dimming rear view mirror, rear view camera4, Infinity®5 sound system, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio,6 the Optima Hybrid EX trim offers tremendous value for drivers looking to save at the pump without sacrificing premium content.
