While some carmakers predict a fully electric future, that doesn’t give them a free pass to overlook hybrids.Â
Hyundai, for instance, unveiled a sleek hybrid addition to its lineup at the Chicago Auto Show, which runs from February 8 through February 17. The addition â€” the 2020 Sonata Hybrid â€” was officially announced last year, but just made its North American debut.Â
According to Hyundai, the new Sonata Hybrid gets 686 miles of range and an EPA-estimated 52 mpg in its Blue trim. While the 2019 Sonata Hybrid had four trim levels, specification sheets for the new car show three: the Blue, SEL, and Limited trims, with the Blue appearing to be the bottom of the three. The SEL and Limited hybrid trims are listed as getting an estimated 47 mpg combined.
The new hybrid also sports a “solar-roof system” that adds a couple of miles of driving range each day, Hyundai said.Â
