<a href="http://on.aol.com/video/kia-optima-diesel-mild-hybrid-planned--but-not-for-u-s--market-518424534"> </a> The Kia Optima Hybrid has been the Korean brand's green-car mainstay for four years now, but now Kia is taking its hybrid technology in a new direction--at least for some parts of the world. Kia is preparing a mild-hybrid version of the Optima, fitted with a diesel engine, most likely aimed at the European market. The Kia Optima Mild Hybrid concept will debut this powertrain at the upcoming 2014 Paris Motor Show, although Kia hasn't discussed production plans.
