More sophisticated tech. More comfort and safety.

The SANTA FE Hybrid is at the top of its class with an extra focus on comfort and functionality backed up by an expanded selection of premium smart tech like the new Smartstream hybrid powertrain as well as first-class safety and connectivity features.

Performance

New hybrid powertrain for more efficiency and power.

With its dynamic tandem of a turbocharged petrol direct injection and powerful battery-powered electric motor, the SANTA FE Hybrid is taking fuel efficiency to the next level. All without you having to charge a battery or change your driving habits. The Hybrid switches seamlessly between the electric motor and conventional engine, sometimes utilizing both at the same time.

    More performance. Less emissions. CVVD Engine Technology.

    Hyundai has developed the world’s first Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology. It optimizes engine performance and fuel efficiency while also being eco-friendly. The valve control technology regulates the duration of valve opening and closing according to driving conditions.

    Energy flow.

    Depending on the driving situation, the SANTA FE 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.

      Start/ Low Speed.

      When starting or driving at low speed, the electricity stored in the battery powers the electric motor to accelerate the SANTA FE Hybrid.

      Regenerative Braking.

      When decelerating (e.g. through braking or when driving downhill) the electric motor operates as a generator and regenerates kinetic energy into electric energy, which is then stored in the battery.
