The Optima`s 1.7-liter CRDi turbo diesel engine is also backed by a small electric range and a 48V lead carbon battery, with the concept being capable of driving on electric power alone at low speeds.

Interesting enough, during decelerations, the Kia Optima T-Hybrid Concept can use these lapsed times to recharge the battery pack.
