Hyundai Announces Hyundai Elantra HybridApril 1, 2020
Hyundai took off camouflage with the Elantra a couple of weeks ago, and although the details and specifications of the Hybrid are hidden, Hyundai posted photos of the new Elantra Hybrid online.
In almost all respects, the Hybrid looks like a replica of a gas engine model. One of the only things that makes this hybrid stand out is the hybrid icon in the upper right corner of the trunk lid. The lower rear skin is also slightly different in design.
Hyundai has also developed a new layout for a digital dashboard that will allow you to monitor your driving performance with an Eco sensor. Like most hybrid vehicles, there is also a diagram of how the car delivers and restores the power available for display on the infotainment screen.
The fuel economy feature for the hybrid is not available, but it is projected to reach a combined rating of 50 mpg. It is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder electric motor. The total system capacity is 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission shifts gears.
Unlike the new Sonata Hybrid, the Elantra will not have a sun roof. When parking in the sun, the benefits are minimal – only about 2 miles per day. The Sonata hybrid also differs from the regular Sonata more than the Elantra line stands out. The new grille and wheel design are the most obvious changes, but it also gets a new exhaust design and rear cage.
Hyundai has not yet announced any changes in the release schedule for the new Elantra or Elantra Hybrid, as both models should appear at dealerships this fall.
