The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has recently released a new commercial video of the Sonata Hybrid model for the United States auto market.
After launching the new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid back in December 2011, in the U.S., the car manufacturer has decided that time has come to place the “green” model into the spotlights once again, by releasing a commercial video which we won’t even comment on, because it looks like it’s been made by using MS Movie Maker.
“A raked roofline and streamlined design help the Sonata Hybrid achieve one of the industry’s lowest coefficient of drag. A unique front grille, available 17-inch alloy wheels and headlights with LED accents distinguish the Hybrid from its traditional counterpart. Front fog lights, LED tail lights and side mirror turn-signal indicators increase visibility and appeal, while the Blue Drive badge shows you’re leading the way to lower emissions”, as Hyundai says.
As a reminder, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata is powered by a 2.4 liter Atkinson-cycle engine, which is developing 169 horsepower, mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox and helped by a 30 kW electric motor and a lithium polymer battery pack. The model is returning an estimated EPA of 40 mpg (5.9 liters / 100 km) on the highway and 35 mpg (6.7 liters / 100 km) in the city, while in the combined, the vehicle does 37 mpg (6.4 liters / 100 km). Optional features like the leather package, auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated front and rear seats and other things can also be ordered by its future customers.
