Hyundai introduced the hybrid version of the new generation of the Sonata sedan, featuring a solar panel system on the roof.
It is used to charge the battery and increase mileage by one charge. The company said that this way it can fill up six hours a day increasing the annual mileage by 1,3 thousand km, reports Autonews.
According to the announcement, the new model is also equipped with a 2-liter GDi HEV engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Total power of the car – 195 horsepower.
The average fuel consumption in the combined cycle is about 4.97 liters per 100 kilometers.
In addition, Sonata received an ASC system that uses an electric motor to synchronize the speed of rotation of the shaft of the engine and transmission. This reduces the start-up time by 30%, improves fuel economy and extends the life of the gearbox.
