Performance

New hybrid powertrain for more efficiency and power.

The innovative full-parallel hybrid drive system delivers 265 PS combined power output from its new 180 PS 1.6-litre T-GDi engine and 66.9 kW electric motor. The powerful 13.8 kWh battery also gives you an all-electric mode at the push of a button Once the electric-only range is depleted, it switches seamlessly back to the petrol engine so you can go as far as you need to – and plug in to recharge later.

    Powerful electric motor.

    Enjoy electric acceleration. The 66.9 kW electric motor delivers high torque and high efficiency. It also delivers impressive acceleration when starting.

    Energy flow.

    Depending on the driving situation, the All-New Santa Fe Plug-in Hybrid switches seamlessly between its petrol engine and electric motor. The regenerative braking system charges the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car. The energy stored in the battery then powers the electric motor to help in acceleration, uphill driving and low speed driving. This complex energy flow is illustrated here.
