Kia has confirmed UK prices for the new plug-in hybrid version of its Sorento SUV.
The arrival of the PHEV model follows the introduction of the new, fourth-generation Sorento with hybrid and diesel engines earlier this year.
The plug-in hybrid features a 1.6-litre, 180hp petrol engine, paired with a 66.9kW electric motor, meaning a total combined output of 265hp.
A 13.8kWh battery pack allows an electric driving range of up to 35 miles on the WLTP test cycle.
In European spec, Kia says official WLTP CO2 emissions are 38g/km - UK spec figures are still to be confirmed.
The Sorento plug-in hybrid is available with the same three equipment grades as the rest of the Sorento range, badged 2, 3, and 4.
Prices start at £44,995 for a 2-spec car, and rise to £48,895 for a 3, and £53,095 for a top-spec 4.
They are available to pre-order now, with the first cars due to arrive at showrooms early in 2021.
