From petrol to hydrogen.

Hyundai is a leader in eco-friendly powertrains with a wide range of electrified, conventional and high-performance vehicles. Our engine line-up includes internal combustion engines (petrol and diesel), hybrid, battery electric and fuel cell electric powertrains.

What drives you?

Depending on your driving needs and performance wants, you can choose from a wide range of powertrains. How does your vehicle fit into your lifestyle? And how much do you want to sink your CO2 emissions? From highly-efficient combustion engines to electrified powertrains like a 48-volt mild hybrid, hybrid, plug-in hybrid or an all-electric vehicle, you can find more information here.

    Understand the differences and learn about Hyundai's 48V mild hybrid option and N performance motors.


    Apart from the engine, the transmission is also part of the powertrain. Internal combustion engines operate at a rotational speed that is too high for starting, stopping, and slower travel.

      Manual transmissions.

      Generally lighter, and considered more fun by some drivers, manual transmissions range from five to six speed versions.

      Automatic transmissions.

      Automatic transmissions select the appropriate gear without any driver intervention, making them the most convenient.

      Dual clutch transmissions.

      Dual clutch transmissions combine the fuel efficiency and driving fun of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic.

    4. Shift-by-wire in the centre console of a Hyundai.

      EV transmissions.

      Electric motors generate high torque at very low speeds and can operate with a single gear, saving the extra weight and parts of a multi-gear transmission.

    5. Clearcut of the intelligent Manual Transmission of Hyundai.

      Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT).

      Used in combination with 48V mild hybrid technology, iMT decouples the engine from the transmission after the accelerator is released, sending the car into coasting mode.
