Plug-in technology

With a larger battery that can be plugged in and charged in under 3 hours, the 2017 Sonata Plug-in Hybrid is capable of travelling up to 43 km on electric power alone. Once the electric-only range is depleted, the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid reverts to operate like the traditional Sonata Hybrid, on a full-parallel hybrid drive system.

What does this mean to you and your commute?

To work: The advanced technology allows you to enjoy gas-free commuting during the week. By travelling up to 43 km on electric power, you can easily charge the battery at home overnight or at work during the day using a standard household 120V outlet. The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid can be charged in under 3 hours.

For longer road trips:
The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid gives you the flexibility to travel as far as you want without being worried about a plug-in station. With the full-parallel hybrid drive system, once the electric range is expended, the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid begins to run on a gasoline internal combustion engine, an electric motor, or both, creating the perfect blend of power and efficiency.

With level 2 (240 V) charging station. Not included.
