The anti-guzzler: can it handle the long haul?
Here’s the bad news: In many parts of the country, gas is $4 a gallon. Here’s the good news: The 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid delivers up to 40 mpg on the highway. And here’s even more good news: the Optima hybrid works in full electric mode at speeds up to 62 miles per hour, depending on your driving style. Which makes this new electric-gas hybrid a great contender for short hauls and city driving. It will also aid in fuel savings for adventures beyond the now-popular staycation.
