Hyundai have revealed new images of their forthcoming hybrid version of their Sonata car. Along with the new pictures that were posted online yesterday, the Korean firm also revealed some brand new information regarding the specifics of the car. The first thing on the agenda was the overall range that the car can travel and this was confirmed to be at 24 miles from electric power alone. A two litre petrol engine giving out 154bhp has also been paired up to an electric motor and as standard Hyundai have said that an automatic six speed transmission will come along with the car.
