With a goal of having a fleet-wide average of 54.5 mpg by 2025, Hyundai is leading the future of eco-friendly vehicles. But even today, a trip to your local Hyundai dealership will prove that environmental responsibility and green energy doesn’t have to mean dull performance. Here is a look at some of the vehicles, technologies, and philosophies that make Hyundai the go-to choice for car buyers who want to lower their carbon footprint without sacrificing the thrill of driving.
- Blue Drive – At the forefront of Hyundai’s commitment to giving drivers eco-friendly vehicles that are actually fun to drive is Blue Drive. This philosophy is what guides Hyundai in its effort to become the automotive leader in sustainability. Blue Drive has helped Hyundai engineers and designers create lighter vehicles, more efficient powertrains, and advanced proprietary hybrid technologies.
- Advanced Hybrid Technology – Speaking of hybrid technologies, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is the industry’s most advanced hybrid vehicle. Unlike other hybrid vehicles on the market, the Sonata Hybrid uses a patented Lithium Polymer battery that is 25% lighter and 10% more efficient than other hybrid batteries. And yet, despite an impressive EPA-estimated fuel economy of 40 mpg highway, the 2012 Sonata Hybrid still boasts best-in-class 206 horsepower. Hybrid mileage and thrilling performance in one package—that’s what the future of Hyundai Hybrid vehicles is all about.
- Eco-Technology Research Institute – Hyundai’s Eco-Technology Research Institute is at the forefront of the automotive industry’s environmental movement. Here, Hyundai scientists and engineers are leading studies, developing innovative new technologies, and creating new ways to lower air pollution while also improving the fun and excitement drivers experience inside their new Hyundai vehicles.
