Hyundai is taking a front seat in the important revolutionary phase of alternative fuel powertrains. Now is the time when alternative fuel vehicles and their hybrid counterparts separate from their internal-combustion-only predecessors to take their place on the world’s roads.
Hyundai has demonstrated leadership in sustainable motoring through its range of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles: Enter Santa Fe and Tucson - now being offered in Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid configurations. Two of Hyundai Canada’s best-selling vehicles, now with alternative fuel configurations the Canadian public has been yearning for.
CRITICAL MASS AROUND THE CORNER
The automotive world has long looked ahead to a time of “critical mass” when most vehicles on the road incorporate an alternative fuel source engine, that being an EV, or some other hybrid combination of EV. In Canada, that critical mass is clearly just around the corner and the fleet of emission-free vehicles that will lead that revolution is arriving. This is clearly demonstrated in the fact that Hyundai is offering the all-new Santa Fe and Tucson as much sought after hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines.
PLETHORA OF TECHNOLOGY
Both the Santa Fe and the Tucson will offer the latest in automotive technology from Hyundai. The plethora of notable technology for the Santa Fe includes: Head-Up Display turning the windshield into a display screen; a 10.25” touch screen; surround view monitor; 12.3” digital instrument cluster, as well as Hyundai’s suite of proven safety technologies such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist; Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist - Reverse, and Lane departure warning just to name a few.Available features for Tucson includes Remote Smart Parking Assist, a 10.25” digital gauge cluster, hands-free power liftgate, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as safety features such as Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with pedestrian and cyclist detection, as well as Blind View Monitor.
THE HARDEST WORKING WARRANTIES
When Hyundai says they stand by their vehicles, they mean it. And that isn’t more true than for the Santa Fe and Tucson. Hyundai has received multiple awards from the most reputable third-party organizations when it comes to the quality of their vehicles. This quality is equally matched by the quality of their warranty, too, offering customers peace of mind with a 5-year/100,000 kilometre warranty and 8 year/160,000 km warranty for hybrid systems. They even offer a 5-year/unlimited kilometre Roadside Assistance Program with flat tire changing, lockout service and more. That’s reliability you can count on.
The future has arrived in a very practical way. While it has taken dedication and time to create an environment where vehicle technology, charging capability and charging facility density come together, the results are here - and the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of Santa Fe and Tucson are the perfect examples of how it all comes together.
