Starting price of $ 46,845 for the 2022 Kia Sorento PHEV

Kia had promised us a Sorento hybrid rechargeable by the end of this year, and the manufacturer seems to keep its promises. At the time of this writing, this SUV will be in dealerships nationwide, and at a very aggressive price tag of $ 46,845 including freight and delivery charges, just to give the Toyota RAV4 Prime a hard time.

True to its habits of adjusting to the realities of the Quebec market, Kia made sure to position the price of Sorento hybrid plug-in to qualify for the two government rebates for plug-in hybrid vehicles. Consumers are therefore entitled to a reduction of $ 6,500 on the final price of this model. However, the Sorento is not eligible for the same discounts as the Toyota RAV4 Prime ($ 13,000) due to a lower capacity battery.

Three versions are available for this model, namely the EX ($ 46,845), EX + ($ 52,445) and SX ($ 56,795) variants.

Capable of traveling up to 51 kilometers on a full charge of its battery, the Rechargeable Sorento PHEV is powered by a hybrid engine consisting of a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged thermal engine and an electric motor powered by a 13.8 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. Total combined horsepower is 281 horsepower and torque is 258 lb-ft.

In terms of availability, Kia, like all automakers, is affected by the semiconductor shortage and parts supply issues. What we are told is that models will be available in dealerships for a test drive, and that an order will then be necessary from the manufacturer. However, it is still too early to know the delivery times. A Kia dealership has informed us that everything will depend on the demand for the vehicle, which, according to our source, is likely to be very high.
