The biggest surprise is that the Kurai Telluride 2018 is a hybrid. Kia is not a preferred choice when it comes to hybrids. There are not many hybrid cars in the range. The Kia Optima is definitely the best Kia Hybrid offer, but Niro also delivers the products. With this concept, Kia has announced a major change in its strategy and it is a sign that the South Korean automaker will follow the trends in the market more than before. As far as we are concerned, it was time for Kia to rethink the strategy. Otherwise, it will continue to lose its market share.
This concept is equipped with a 3.5-liter gasoline-powered six-cylinder with direct injection that can deliver only 270 horsepower. In combination with an electric motor, which adds 130 horsepower, the total horsepower is 400 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Apparently, the fuel economy is 30 mpg, but these are just the allegations of Kia. No one had the chance to test the vehicle except for its employees. If that’s true, it’s a big step forward for Kia. There is no information about the transmission system, while the drive mode is AWD.
