The new Hyundai Santa Fe is to gain hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains.
As part of an ongoing electrification plan by Hyundai, the two additional engine variants are expected to be introduced within the next 18 months.
The announcement was made at the launch of the new seven-seat SUV in Barcelona, although the Korean brand's executives remain tight-lipped over the finer details.
UK customers are so far confirmed to be offered only the 2.2-litre diesel engine, but it’s likely that both electrified variants will make it the UK upon the new model's arrival. Other markets get more engine options, including a 184bhp 2.4-litre diesel and a 232bhp 2.0-litre petrol.
Hyundai plans a range of 16 electrified cars by 2025 under its Hyundai and Kia brands, with the most recently announced being a 48V hybrid version of the Tucson. The mild hybrid Santa Fe is expected to share its powertrain with that car. This outputs 183bhp from its 2.0-litre CRDi engine and 16bhp from its 48V system, which is supplied by a 0.44kWh battery.
