Hyundai’s award-winning Plug-In Hybrid technology combines the best of both worlds by offering customers the emissions-free operation of an electric vehicle (99 EPA estimated MPGe) combined with the flexibility and efficiency of a hybrid vehicle (39 EPA estimated MPG). Sonata Plug-In Hybrid’s 28 mile all-electric range is ideal for commuting purposes and combined with the 572 mile range in hybrid mode, total driving range is an impressive 600 miles.

The 2018 Sonata Plug-in Hybrid’s efficient 2.0L GDI 4-cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine and the powerful 50 kW (67 HP) electric motor are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission for a more familiar and natural operation feel compared to competitors use of CVTs. The 50 kW electric motor is 32 percent more powerful than the motor used in Sonata Hybrid and allows for EV operation at higher engine load and speed. The state-of-the-art 9.8 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery system is more than five times larger than the Sonata Hybrid’s battery and can be charged using a 240V Level 2 charging station in two hours and 42 minutes. Sonata Plug-in Hybrid’s battery can also be charged overnight using the Level 1 charger equipped with the vehicle.

Exterior Redesign

The advanced exterior includes a more dynamic front fascia featuring new sheet metal for the hood and front fenders, incorporating the new Hyundai signature cascading grille shape, while a new rear deck lid allows for a sleeker, coupe-like appearance. In addition, the redesigned 17-inch eco-spoke alloy wheel, distinctive blue bezel headlights and taillights with clear outer lens further highlight the refreshed design of the Plug-In Hybrid model.

Interior Update

The Sonata Plug-In Hybrid’s interior has also been updated with a revised center stack area and instrument cluster that provides an improved sense of dimension while the steering wheel now has a sportier leather-wrapped three-spoke design.
