Performance

Driving thrills with low-emissions and no-compromises.

The TUCSON’s plug-in hybrid system delivers maximum fuel efficiency and some serious driving thrills. It is based on the potent combination of the 1.6-litre T-GDi Smartstream engine paired with a 66.9 kW electric motor, powered by a 13.8 kWh lithium polymer battery. Together, the gasoline engine and electric motor deliver 265 PS maximum power and 304 Nm maximum torque.

    Energy flow.

    Depending on the driving situation, the all-new TUCSON Plug-in 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 in these animations.

      Start/ Low Speed.

      When starting or driving at low speed, the electricity stored in the battery powers the electric motor to move the TUCSON Plug-in 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 and used to power the electric motor.

    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.

    Charging

    Multiple convenient ways to charge.

    Thanks to Hyundai’s innovative powertrain technology, charging can be quick and convenient. You can charge at a public AC charging station, a home wall box or domestic wall socket. And when you’re plugged in at home, you can remotely schedule charging via your smartphone and the Bluelink® app during low-demand hours for lower rates.
