Hyundai has announced that they would like to offer more hybrids alongside its existing lineup. They have promised that by 2022 they will be able to offer ten electrified models, which include three car models and seven SUVs. New models will include:
HYBRID (HEV) & PLUG IN HYBRID (PHEV)
The Elantra, Sonata, Tucson and Santa Fe are the new Hybrid (HEV) models to be released under the new electrified car lineup. Here are a few bits of information about the lineup.
The Elantra is a Sudan boasting a sports interior and its 276-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four. The Elantra features a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, an exceptional fuel economy and an 8-inch touchscreen, which can be upgraded to a 10.3 inch. It includes voice activation, a wireless charging pad and a climate control setting for the heated seats.
The new and improved Sonata has a sleek wind-carved body, a gold grille and a one-piece full-width taillight bar. Other features include LED headlights, 16-inch wheels and an 8-inch touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Tucson has a range of exciting features such as a sleek exterior with a redesigned bumper, large 19 “alloy wheels, full LED headlights and a sporty tail light. The interior has been given a lot of thought, boasting comfort and space with soft-touch materials and four color schemes to choose from. This will be part of the Hybrid and Plug-in hybrid range.
The Santa Fe will not be changing its look drastically, the profile will pretty much stay the same, with the rear being restyled to support the new taillights and bumper. Although no details have been released as of yet, it’s believed the main change will be found under the hood, with the engine switching to the new Hybrid and Plug-in hybrid version.
BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLE (BEV)
The Kona is a beautiful looking car with the benefits of self-charging, premium black cloth or leather seats, and a spacious 36q liter load. The Knoa has been designed to be a fun and simple but practical drive, with a low loading height of 695mm and a rear opening width of 1,0002mm. What more could you want from this car.
Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6
Hyundai are keeping these two models close to their chest, no information has been released yet, but we are excited to see what they have in store.
FUEL CELL EV (FCEV)
Starting at a whopping $60,000, this car is definitely worth the investment. The Nexo is a hydrogen-powered fuel-cell SUV. It converts the hydrogen into electricity to power it to drive 380 miles per fill-up.
We are excited to see these cars come to market. If you are in more of a rush to purchase a car check out the Hyundai i20 or Hyundai Palisade for sale. While you here, check out CES 2020 MEDIA DAY 2 RE-CAP: CATCHING PIONEER, VALEO, DOCOMO AND KLIPSCH-MCLAREN VIBES
