The Optima Hybrid switches smoothly between electric motor and gas engine—delivering a refined drive. And it finds the best combination of the two, depending on the conditions, to ensure optimal fuel efficiency.
Keep track of the Optima’s fuel efficiency with a vivid display that shows the battery being charged, your MPG, the eco-friendliness of your last drive, and additional performance information.
Like the idea of longer periods between fill-ups? The LX model achieves an EPA-estimated 36 mpg in the city, 40 mpg on the highway, and 38 mpg combined. Overall, refinements to the Optima Hybrid’s powertrain have made it more efficient while retaining its sporty feel.
The Optima Hybrid utilizes two systems: an electric traction motor that works in concert with a lithium polymer battery and a 4-cylinder gas engine. The Optima Hybrid will be powered by one or both, depending what type of driving you’re doing.
Available High Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlights provide crisp white light that helps illuminate the road ahead.
The LED Rear Combination Lamps add a measure of standout style to the rear. Their bright appearance also helps make the Optima Hybrid more visible.
In the Optima Hybrid, efficiency isn’t simply about a hybrid powertrain. In order to help you make better use of fuel, the exterior itself is designed to lend a helping hand. The side airflow vent reduces drag, allowing air to pass freely through it.
The nerve center of your Optima Hybrid is the available voice-command navigation. It offers a vivid color touch screen and relays real-time highway conditions from SiriusXM + Services.

The Optima Hybrid cabin offers a truly distinct touch: an available white interior package that features luxurious white leather seats, the refined touch of blue piping, and additional leather-like touches on the door and armrest.
There’s an additional level of convenience enabled by your smart key: You can start up the Optima Hybrid with just the push of a button.
Side Curtain Airbags can reduce injuries when used in tandem with properly-fitted seat belts for both front and 2nd-row seating positions. The airbag system is managed by a number of advanced sensors that detect when an accident is imminent or underway and deploy the necessary airbags.
