2019 Sonata Plug-in Hybrid
The advantages of Plug-In Technology
While most hybrids only employ electric motors to augment their gas engines, plug-in hybrids rely on their electric motors for propulsion and only use gas engines to extend range or when their charge is depleted.
The Sonata Plug-In Hybrid can be charged in under three hours, and is capable of traveling up to 45 kilometres on electric power alone. Once its electric charge is depleted, it operates like a traditional Hybrid, on a full-parallel hybrid drive system, until it can be recharged.
