EV FAQs


Kia EVs can drive more than 200 miles on a single charge, enough range to let you travel between Amarillo and Lubbock on I-27 before recharging. The all-new Kia EV6 offers 300 miles of all-electric range, letting Amarillo motorists drive all the way to Albuquerque along I-40.

Most electric car batteries will last at least a decade, if not two decades, before a replacement is needed. Thanks to Kia's 10-year, 100,000-mile battery capacity warranty, Pampa motorists can drive a Kia EV with peace of mind.

Drivers across the Texas Panhandle can plug their Kia EV into a home outlet, personal charging station, or public charging station.

Level 1 charging uses a 120-volt household outlet. Level 2 charging uses a 240-volt charger. This can be an at-home charging station in your Dumas garage or at a public charging station. Level 3 charging uses a 480-volt DC fast charger. These DC fast charging stations can be found around Amarillo and are the fastest ways for Texas drivers to recharge their electric vehicle.

Contact Pete's Car Smart Kia if you want to know more about installing a Level 2 at-home charging station.

Charge time depends on the battery capacity and the type of charger Canyon drivers are using. Level 3 charging can fully recharge the Kia EV in 30 minutes. Level 1 and Level 2 charging — best for Kia Plug-In Hybrids — may take several hours or up to half the day. This EV charge method is preferred for at-home overnight charging before traveling around Amarillo the next day.

Kia EVs are eligible for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits. The state of Texas offers an additional $2,500 rebate for eligible electric cars under the Texas EV Rebate Program.

Kia EVs are more sustainable for the environment, as they produce little to zero emissions. They offer near-silent driving around Amarillo and provide smooth acceleration with instantaneous torque. Models that aren't pure electric earn high fuel economy ratings on trips from Pampa to Amarillo due to hybrid powertrains and regenerative braking. Kia electric vehicles also use little to no fuel and offer convenient charging solutions.

Yes! This saves Texas drivers money! Since there are fewer moving parts — including no engines in pure electric models — less wear and tear occurs. This means Amarillo motorists will have less maintenance to worry about.

There are battery electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV), fuel cell electric (FCEV), and hybrids (HEV). Kia produces several all-electric, plug-in hybrids, and hybrids, which Hereford shoppers can find on our lot in Amarillo, TX.
