Hyundai has been a leader in the development of plug-in hybrid and fully electric luxury vehicles that deliver all of the features and performance of a traditional Hyundai with vastly improved efficiency.

Hyundai has one of the most comprehensive new vehicle luxury lineups that are equipped with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Hyundai also offers multiple electric vehicles such as the all-new Hyundai IONIQ 5. Let’s take a look at the differences between Hyundai’s electric vehicle lineup and plug-in hybrid vehicle lineup.

Hyundai PHEV plug-in hybrid SUVs and cars

Plug-in hybrid vehicles offer both a gas engine and an electric motor which is powered by a battery that has a higher capacity than in a normal hybrid vehicle. The end result is that you can use the high-capacity battery and electric motor to power your Hyundai Tucson PHEV over a short distance. With a range of about 50 km, you can get to work and back using very little fuel. On the other hand, you don’t have to change the way you drive. Nor do you have to worry about charging your vehicle because there is always a gas engine to take over if needed.

Hyundai IONIQ 5 fully electric vehicle

The IONIQ 5 is fully electric and it comes in multiple versions offering over 400 kilometres of range. That means that you will never have to put fuel in your vehicle ever again. Being fully electric, the IONIQ 5 is also a lot faster and a lot quicker off the line that a lot of vehicles offered in the $45k to $60k range, delivering a trully engaging driving experience.
