The new Hyundai TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid 4WD will cost from £39,330 and it will have an electric range of 35 miles.
With the addition of a plug-in hybrid powertrain, Hyundai’s SUV now offers the widest range of electrified powertrains in its class. The 1.6-litre T-GDi Smartstream engine is paired with a 66.9 kW electric motor and a 13.8 kWh lithium polymer battery. Combined, the petrol engine and electric motor deliver 265 PS maximum power and 350 Nm maximum torque.
The new TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid brings a number of technical changes for this powertrain, including active aerodynamics with an Active Air Flap that adjusts air intake depending on the engine coolant temperature and vehicle speed, in order to minimise air resistance and maximise fuel efficiency.
4WD comes standard on the new TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid, with Hyundai HTRAC four-wheel drive technology and a Terrain Mode selector for safe driving on challenging terrain. HTRAC can variably distribute driving power to the front and rear wheels depending on traction conditions and the driving state, while the Terrain Mode selector will optimise power, torque and braking depending on the road conditions.
Two trims are available, Premium and Ultimate, which aligns with the trims available on the Hybrid variants. The Tucson Premium Plug-in Hybrid is priced from £39,330. Ultimate specification is from £42,030 and adds 19” wheels, leather seat facings, panoramic glass sunroof and smart electric tailgate. The optional Tech Pack is available on Ultimate models and includes electronically controlled suspension, remote smart park assist, blind spot view monitor, around view monitor and parking collision avoidance assist.
The new TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, 8 year 100,000 mile High Voltage Battery Warranty, Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.
