South Korean automaker Kia has unveiled its new K5 plug-in hybrid sedan at the Auto China show in Beijing.

Known as the Optima in the U.S. and Europe, the K5 sports a 50 kW electric motor and 2.0-liter GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine, delivering 156 horsepower and 139-pound-feet of torque with a 29-mile (47-kilometer) range.

On the design side, it looks relatively modest, a mild refresh over the previous version with an unassuming tiger nose grille, daytime running lights, short hood, and dipping rear windows.

The K5 is scheduled to start production and go on sale n China starting Q2 2018.
