If you think electric cars are just big golf carts, then you may want to take a moment to explore the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid. Rather than a pokey vehicle with no power and a driving range smaller than your driveway, the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid boasts incredible features that surpass the expectations of any modern green car.

Read on to learn the top three reasons why you should consider this excellent car.

2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid: A Car for the Future

Experience Outstanding Range

Did you know that the average commuter only travels 11.8 miles one way, or that the average summer road trip is 314 miles? The Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid can comfortably conquer these distances and then some. It’s all-electric range can take you 27 miles without having to be charged. When gas and electricity are combined, this vehicle can take you up to 590 miles. Think about that. Anxiously hoping an exit with a gas station will soon appear is a thing of the past.

If you’re curious to see how far this vehicle can take you, the Hyundai website has a helpful tool. You just might be surprised to see where the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid can take you.

Use Top of the Line Technology

Innovation doesn’t stop with the Sonata Plug-in Hybrid’s range but continues throughout the vehicle. Ingenious technology runs throughout this car, but the real highlight might be the the Blue Link app.

Blue Link’s features include:

  • Remote Control Services such as:
    • Start or stop charging
    • Set up charging schedule with days of the week and time
    • Climate control and defroster
  • Connected Car Services such as:
    • Vehicle diagnostics/status
    • Battery level
    • Real-time electric range
    • Real-time fuel range
    • Charge status
    • Plug status (in/out)
    • Time left until fully charged

Harness Unmatched Safety Features

The Sonata Plug-in Hybrid puts safety first. Standard features on this vehicle include seven airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Traction Control, ABS, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System with individual tire pressure display. The rearview camera is also standard.

The standard safety features don’t stop there, however, as each Plug-in Hybrid also includes an advanced Blind Spot Detection system. This system is designed to alert drivers of an approaching vehicle in the next lane if the turn signal is activated. Hyundai has thought of everything just in case you forget while you’re behind the wheel.
