Kia Motors Celebrates Earth Week with Clean Mobility Showcase Featuring Local Environmental Partners and the Refreshed 2014 Optima Hybrid

IRVINE, Calif. – Recognized as one of the "50 Best Global Green Brands" by Interbrand, Kia Motors is celebrating Earth Week by highlighting its commitment to environmental sustainability in the United States, including important local partnerships with The Ecology Center and Pacific Marine Mammal Center (PMMC), as well as marking the arrival of the refreshed 2014 Optima Hybrid in showrooms. The Optima Hybrid will be joined later this year by Kia's first all-electric, zero-emission vehicle in the U.S. – the Soul EV – and both vehicles illustrate the brand's vision for a greener future. As such, Kia Motors America (KMA) will place two electric car charging units at The Ecology Center, a San Juan Capistrano, Calif.-based non-profit eco-education center dedicated to creating a healthy and abundant future for all of Southern California. Community members will benefit from Kia-subsidized vehicle charging.
