Electric when you want it, gas when you need it. 

Our plug-in hybrid models take you so much farther than you ever thought possible. They have a larger battery than a traditional hybrid, one that can be plugged in for charging and that’s capable of travelling a certain distance on electric power alone. Once the electric-only range is depleted, the vehicle will revert to operate like the traditional hybrid. That way your Hyundai gets you there, going farther with the use of both fuel sources.

Frequently asked questions about plug-in hybrid vehicles:

In large part, plug-in hybrid vehicles function the same way as their traditional hybrid counterparts. A PHEV generally has a larger battery and electric motor, enabling the vehicle to travel up to 45 km (IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid and Sonata Plug-in Hybrid) purely on electricity before switching to regular hybrid operation. While this all-electric range can be restored by plugging the vehicle into an external power source, it is not required – ensuring less range anxiety.

The key advantages of a plug-in hybrid versus a hybrid include a bigger battery and more powerful electric motor that allows you to commute longer distances of up to 45 km using just the battery. On top of that, the plug-hybrid has the convenience of charging the battery by plugging it into an external electrical source.While fuel economy is similar, the plug-in hybrid edges out conventional hybrids in lower greenhouse gas emissions and by giving you the option to drive shorter distances using 100% electric.

The range of a plug-in hybrid varies from model to model. The IONIQ Electric Plus, for example, has the capability to travel over 1,000 kilometres.

* Total Driving range of 1002 kilometers based on a 43 litre tank and 4.5L/100km combined fuel economy for a 955 kilometre Gasoline driving range plus the all-electric driving range of 47 kilometers* for the 2019 IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid Ultimate model. Fuel economy figures are based on manufacturer’s testing and are used for comparison purposes only. Actual fuel efficiency may vary based on driving conditions and the addition of certain vehicle accessories. . All-electric driving range of 47 kilometers based on a battery capacity of 8.9 kWh and battery usage rate of 2.0Le/100km for the 2019 IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid Preferred model.

A hybrid electric vehicle and a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle both utilize their powerful electric motor and a gasoline engine to generate movement. They adapt on their own using both the electric motor and gasoline engine simultaneously based on the current driving conditions. Both vehicles also use regenerative braking, the most efficient way of putting energy back into the electric battery. This is the process of recovering energy that would otherwise be lost during deceleration so it can be reused to propel the car once acceleration is required.

The key differences between the two is that the plug-in hybrid has a larger electric motor and greater battery capacity allowing it to be used for a greater range of operation and distance. The plug-in hybrid plugging into an external electric source while the standard hybrid is solely fueled like a conventional gasoline vehicle.
