Hyundai ready for plug-in hybrid leadership in 2012
In addition to announcing that Hyundai is "accelerating" its efforts into hybrid cars, despite being late to the hybrid game, Hyundai also confirmed that it will begin offering plug-in hybrids in 2012.
Hyundai's first hybrid will be the Sonata hybrid later this year.
Despite Hyundai's late hybrid arrival, the automaker believes it could become a real leader in plug-in hybrid technology. No new details on Hyundai's plug-in plans outside of the Blue Will plug-in concept were offered, however, Hyundai did acknowledge today that they believe 20 miles of EV range is the right number for plug-in hybrids.
