Few manufacturers have shown the same dedication and innovation as Hyundai when it comes to creating hybrid and electric vehicles, in hopes of a greener future. By creating vehicles with a lower carbon footprint, Hyundai is both looking out for the following generations, while offering vehicles that save you money, thanks to fewer trips to the gas station (in addition to potential government rebates). Edmonton’s Go Hyundai has been inspired by this environmentally-friendly ethos, and our dealerships—Northstar Hyundai and Southtown Hyundai—have both taken steps to lower their footprint. From going paper-free to becoming a certified Electric Vehicle location complete with multiple charging stations on-site, Go Hyundai is doing their part to help. Of course, selling some of the best hybrid and electric vehicles on the market doesn’t hurt matters. Read on to learn about some of the hybrid and electric models currently available at Go Hyundai, as well as those you can order in, or Hyundai’s revolutionary, soon-to-be-released, fuel cell SUV. If you’re still not sure an electric or hybrid Hyundai is for you, Go Hyundai carries a wide variety of more traditional, gasoline-engine vehicles, which you can learn more about here.
Not only is the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid a great looking vehicle, but it is also Canada’s most fuel-efficient car. Factor in its low starting price of $24,399 and those looking for value, alongside an environmentally-conscious drive, should look no further. The Ioniq Hybrid’s hybrid drivetrain lets you travel over 1,000 kilometres on a single tank of gas, while you’re still treated to 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque—meaning the Ioniq Hybrid is no slouch when it comes to shorter, quicker trips either. With an aerodynamic design, alongside a spacious interior, the 2019 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid is a stellar introduction into not only Hyundai’s hybrid lineup, but into hybrid vehicles period.
Sharing the same pedigree as the Ioniq Hybrid, Hyundai’s Ioniq Electric Plus offers a larger battery alongside greater time between trips to the gas station. With a level 2 charger, the Ioniq Electric Plus can be charged in under 3 hours and drive over 40 kilometres! Unlike the Ioniq Hybrid, which moves between gas and electric-power more fluidly, the Electric Plus will drive until its battery is depleted. For those with a short commute, those driving the Ioniq Electric Plus might never need to stop at a gas station again. Starting at $32,299, this hybrid vehicle knows how to go the distance—and then a little further still.
Already one of Hyundai’s most stylish vehicles, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid brings new life to the Sonata’s already electrifying performance. Starting at $29,749, this Hyundai hybrid adds efficiency, without subtracting fun. Case in point, the Sonata Plug-In Hybrid features Hyundai’s Atkinson-cycle 2.0L 4-cylinder engine alongside its 38 kW battery, for easy access to a lightning-quick 164 horsepower. Add in a wealth of standard Hyundai safety features, and your next sedan might be this plucky plug-in hybrid.
The adventure-ready Hyundai Kona boldly goes where other crossover SUVs don’t—whether that be the road less travelled, or by offering a completely emission-free SUV. Not only is the Kona Electric the first sub-compact electric SUV in Canada, but it also won the 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. Combine the Kona’s tall riding height and capability with those accolades, and the fact that it starts at only $44,999, and it’s no wonder the Hyundai Kona Electric is one of the most desirable crossovers on the market
With a re-engineered, completely electric drivetrain, the Hyundai Ioniq Electric offers an astounding 200-kilometre driving range—all emission-free. With a 450V Level 3 SAE Combo-type quick charge port, you’re looking at a full charge in only 35 minutes—making the Ioniq Electric’s starting price of $37,899 a steal, considering you’ll never need a gas station ever again.
Expected to release in 2019, the Hyundai Nexo is set to revolutionize the automotive industry. Using Hyundai’s proprietary fuel-cell technology, an electrochemical process combines hydrogen and oxygen to power the Nexo—up to 570 km on a 5-minute charge! The Nexo isn’t a zero-emission vehicle, however, the only emission that escapes its exhaust is pure water vapour. The Nexo is primed to be the pinnacle of not only fuel cell vehicles, but all-electric and hybrid vehicles on the market.
With a wide range of hybrid and electric vehicles to suit every budget, not to mention the upcoming fuel cell-powered Nexo, Hyundai is miles ahead of the competition when it comes to environmentally-conscious vehicles.
