Kia’s attempt at an affordable family estate PHEV, the Ceed Sportswagon has more than enough storage and practicality to compete with other models in the market. The electric battery gives plenty of range to cover most short trips, and its interior is of a decent quality that makes for a comfortable, if a little unremarkable, driving experience.

Kia has removed this model from their line-up in 2021.

CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (Pod Point calculated)* 31 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
