Hyundai Tucson PHEV 2021, we advance details of the plug-in hybrid variant

The new generation of the Hyundai Tucson has already been put on sale in Europe, and also in Spain. An offer that includes, for now, versions of gasoline and diesel MHEV and also a hybrid. However, the plug-in hybrid that will arrive in summer 2021 is missing, and of which we give you its first data.

The 2021 range of the Hyundai tucson just put up for sale. The new compact SUV of the Korean firm has all the arguments to become one of the sales leaders in its category: a cocktail very well mixed with a very avant-garde design inside and out, a lot of technology and a range of mechanics that includes two sustainable mobility options.

With prices in Spain, Hyundai allows you to configure the model including also a conventional hybrid version with a maximum power of 230 hp. But it will not be the only zero emissions that the Koreans will offer, but a plug-in hybrid with 265 CV that will reach customers next summer. An alternative with which the Tucson competes equally with the benchmarks of the segment.

Korean technicians have ridden the new Hyundai Tucson PHEV 2021 a high-performance powertrain that it shares with the hybrid in its entirety, although with some differences in the specifications of the electrical components. The combustion part is equivalent to the 1.6-liter T-GDI and 180 hp gasoline block and the electric to an engine with a power of 90 hp, which represents a total of 265 hp.

The capacity of the battery is also a differentiator, with 13.8 kWh, an energy level sufficient to cover displacements in electric mode of up to 45 kilometers. The system is rechargeable in little less than two hours thanks to a charger equipped on board with a maximum power of 7.2 kW. The new Hyundai Tucson PHEV transfers power to the ground through a six-speed automatic gearbox.

As standard, it also has all-wheel drive “HTRAC AWD”. This system has different driving modes adapted to surfaces, including a “Snow” mode, and a program that improves driving dynamics thanks to electricity. Called “e-handling”, it increases the traction of the front wheels, for example, when facing a curve with an extra dose of braking force, while when exiting, the electric motor sends more torque to the rear axle increasing the traction of this axis.
