Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 2020 To Have Solar Roof

New Delhi: Carmaker Hyundai on Monday officially announced the 2020 Sonata Hybrid. For the most part, the exterior design of the hybrid iteration resembles that of its gas-powered counterpart. However, it gets its own refreshed grille and distinctive spoiler.

The biggest outward difference between this moderately-electric model and those only with an engine is that the Sonata Hybrid has a solar panel on the roof. According to the company, which was a bit stingy on details, this roof can increase the vehicle’s overall yearly range by about 808 miles as long as the car gets six hours of sun each day, factoring out to about two extra miles of range every day.

Hyundai has only revealed the powertrain specs of the model designed for the Korean market which consists of a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter internal combustion engine that produces 150 hp paired with an electric motor that produces 51 hp. When working together, the total horsepower output measures in at 192 hp and it’s sent to all four wheels via a six-speed hybrid automatic transmission.

Furthermore, the hybrid Sonata is equipped with Active Shift Control, a technology designed to speed up shift times by 30%.
