The complete guide to charging your Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV (2020), covering electric range, how long it takes to charge, how much it costs, and much more.
Last updated: Apr 06, 2022 • 5 min read
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.
Charging time for a Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV
The table below shows the estimated time to charge your Ceed Sportswagon PHEVfrom empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.
|Charging method||Typically found at||Charging time*||Range/hour**|
|Empty to full|
|3-pin plug||Home||4 h||9 m/h|
|3.6kW||Home / Work||3 h||12 m/h|
|7kW||Home / Work / Public Locations||3 h||12 m/h|
|22kW||Work / Public Locations||3 h||12 m/h|
* Based on Pod Point estimates, charging time can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and variation in charging rate. Max charging rate may also be limited by the vehicle.
** Range per hour is the number of miles you can expect to get from an hour of charging at the relevant rate.

|Battery size||8.9 kWh|
|Usable battery (Pod Point estimate)||8 kWh|
|Official battery efficiency (WLTP)||N/A|
|Battery efficiency (Pod Point estimate)||269 Wh/mile|
|Official MPG (WLTP)||188 mpg|
|Official CO2 emissions (WLTP)||33 gCO2/km|
|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.
