Neil Dowling reports from Korea brid hatch and be up to $10,000 cheaper than the Toyota Prius. But its biggest attraction is the T cost of LPG fuel which is about half that of petrol to make the Cerato Hybrid a candidate for one of Australia’s cheapest small-car sedans to own. TheKia Cerato LPI (for liquefied petroleum injection) Hybrid goes on sale in South Korea in August and though Kia is cautious about an export date, it sees potential in LPG-rich countries like Australia. The Cerato uses a 1.6-litre four- cylinder petrol engine mated to a small electric motor. Kia says it is the world’s first LPG-hybrid production car recipe and is using it as a stepping stone Cars GUIDE Four Wheel Drives LANDROVERDISCOVERY 97, b/bar, d/lights, elec brakes, L/R tank, many more extras. $13,000 ono. 0414 318 223 0 Mitsubishi Pajero 2004 GLS 21st Anniv, 3.2 diesel, auto, 139,000ks, 1 owner, never been used off road. $26,000.

KiaAustralia’s JonathanFletch- er says a trial Cerato Hybrid will be in Australia later this year to test how it operates on Australia’s curious LPG mix. He says Australian LPG has a higher benzene portion that could affect the engine’s durability. This could be a great opportun- ity for Kia and for Australian motorists, he says. There are hurdles to get it into Australia. Australia is a small market and we are a right-hand drive market, so homologation may take time. We have to assure ourselves the car is suitable for our LPG quality. In the best-case scenario, it could be as little as six months to get the car ready for Australia. The Cerato Hybrid uses lithium- polymer batteries — a first for a mass production car with an auto- matic transmission. In a short drive on Kia’s test circuit, the pre-production car dis- played brisk acceleration and strong overtaking speed. It is similar to the Honda system in that the electric motor assists the petrol engine. It cannot be driven purely on electric power. Theengine will automatically turn itself off when the car is stationary and will restart when the acceler- ator pedal is depressed. Kia claims it will accelerate to 100 km/h in 11.7 seconds com- pared with 12 seconds for the conventional 1.6-litre Cerato. It will get 22.1km/litre compared with 15.2km/litre for the 1.6 and is rated as a SULEV while the 1.6 is a ULEV. Based on travel of 20,000km a year, Kia says it will save its owner about $1000 a year over an owner of a 1.6-litre Cerato. The Cerato Hybrid is one of a range of dedicated LPG engines made by Kia. However, the Cerato Hybrid will be the first to be exported. Kia’s director of overseas mar- keting, Soon-Nam Lee, says the range of LPG cars includes taxis, the small-car Picanto and even the Sorento SUV. ‘‘But we only market these in Korea. In the future, we plan to look at other markets—including Australia — that have LPG avail- ability and may be susceptible to high petrol prices,’’ he said. ‘‘The new Optima sedan, which goes on sale in Australia late next year, is one that we make as an LPG model. That could be possi- ble.’’ —19 FEATURES:Theused Mitsubishi Express van. used cars Wayne’sCarSales WAYNE’S deal of the week is a 2005 BA Falcon Futura sedan.
