What a big difference a small electric motor makes when working in tandem with a
traditional combustion engine. Add to this mix our dedication to technological progress
and it all adds up to a ground-breaking range of hybrid cars for you.

Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid awarded What Car? Best Hybrid 2019.
The primary difference between the three types of hybrids available is that each is
supported by their electric motors to different degrees. This will influence fuel
economy and level of emissions.
(also known as MHEV or 48V Mild hybrid)
Primarily powered by a combustion engine, supported by a small electric motor.
(also known as HEV or hybrid)
The petrol engine and electric motor work in unison for enhanced performance.
(also known as PHEV)
Hybrid capable of zero emission driving for short journeys
A Mild hybrid is the right choice for you if...
You mostly drive in the city.
A Hyundai mild hybrid uses a small electric motor to provide assistance to a conventional petrol
engine when required. This makes it ideal for driving in congested stop-start traffic conditions.
In a self-charging hybrid car, an electric motor provides a boost to the engine during
acceleration and can even power the car completely in certain situations such as cruising at a
constant speed. The battery gets its power from regenerative braking when the vehicle slows or
from the combustion engine.
A plug-in hybrid has a larger battery that needs to be charged using an external power source
such as a home charging point or public charging station. The combination of combustion engine
and large capacity battery allows you to make local journeys using mostly the electric motor for
extremely low or even zero CO2 emission driving with engine providing the range for big trips.
Whichever type of hybrid you feel is right for you, the one thing that connects them
all is our forward looking commitment to efficiency, style and engineering.
Aesthetics and effectiveness combine to deliver a profile that
Our hybrids feature a 6-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission).

The Tucson is not simply an evolution of its predecessor, but a full- blown design
revolution. Leading the way in progressive design, it also offers state-of- the-art smart tech
and the most electrified powertrain line-up in its segment.
The Tucson Plug-in Hybrid delivers combined 265 PS of combined power output and an all-electric mode at the push of a button. Once the all-electric range is depleted, the full-parallel hybrid drive system takes over, which means it can run on its petrol engine or electric motor or both. Go as far as you need to. And when you get there, you can plug into a charging station.
With its dynamic pairing of a turbocharged petrol direct injection and powerful battery-powered electric motor, the new SANTA FE Hybrid is taking fuel efficiency to the next level. All without you having to charge a battery or change your driving habits. The Hybrid switches seamlessly between the electric motor and conventional engine, sometimes utilising both at the same time.

Perfect car for commuting, school run and family trips.
Step in to our stylish SUV and feel the power of our state-of-the-art Self-charging hybrid
technology. It fuses our specially-calibrated 1.6 litre GDi petrol engine with a 1.56 kWh
lithium-ion polymer battery for superior efficiency and 141 PS combined power output.
Hybrid vehicles are also covered by our comprehensive 5 year unlimited mileage warranty, available for customers when sold by the authorised Hyundai network in Europe. For full details of the 5 year warranty, as well as our high voltage battery warranty, please visit; https://www.hyundai.co.uk/misc-pages/5_year_warranty
There are a number of factors that could influence when the petrol engine starts including the speed of acceleration, number of passengers, load on the battery, and remaining battery charge. Hybrid vehicles will utilise the battery whenever it is most efficient to do so thanks to ECO-DAS technology, and there isn’t a set speed in which the petrol engine will become the main power supply. With the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid it is possible to run solely on full electric mode for up to 39 miles due to the larger capacity battery.
Whilst the hybrid is able to run on electric power for short time periods as it is designed primarily to assist the combustion engine, it’s only the Plug-in Hybrid that can sustain a longer distance in electric mode only. Thanks to the larger capacity battery the IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid can travel up to 39 miles from a full charge.
Every Hyundai is built with consideration for what happens at the end of its life. Hyundai Motor UK Ltd have partnered with Umicore Battery Recycling to facilitate the recycling process of high voltage batteries used in our Hybrid models.
All approved Hyundai dealerships with a Servicing department are trained to work on hybrid technology. You can locate your nearest Servicing dealer here; https://www.hyundai.co.uk/dealer-locator
You might have heard the term self-charging hybrid, but what does this mean? Putting it very simply, a self-charging hybrid works in exactly the same way as a conventional car with no cables to plug in. The technology uses a normal petrol engine, an electric motor and a high voltage battery.
The electric motor works with the petrol engine to enhance performance whilst reducing co2 emissions and improving fuel consumption. The battery is recharged by a combination of the engine and through recovering energy which would otherwise be lost (such as when slowing down) or by regenerative braking. The IONIQ Hybrid and Kona Hybrid – can be classed as self-charging hybrids.
