With innovative hydrogen fuel cell technology now in its fourth generation, Hyundai recently took the wraps off a hydrogen-powered SUV due to go into production early next year. The next level of fuel cell production has resulted in a 9 percent efficiency boost from the previous model, allowing drivers to go up to 360 miles on a single charge. “With exceptional efficiency, serene styling and uncompromised performance, our next generation fuel cell SUV is the true epitome of an eco-friendly vehicle of the future,” according to Hyundai vice president Lee Ki-sang. “Hyundai Motor will take the lead in developing and producing green energy vehicles that would ultimately complement a near-zero emission society.” The new SUV will first be released in Korea next year, followed by the North American market. Look for it late next year on the showroom floor of Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Leading Push Toward Zero Emissions

The new fuel cell SUV is just part of Hyundai’s commitment to introduce 31 new eco-friendly vehicles across the globe by 2020. Dedicated to improving the health of the planet by lowering vehicle emissions, Hyundai plans to take its alternative energy vehicle production well past the current lineup of IONIQ hybrid and electric vehicles. Look for more electric vehicles in the near future, ranging from smaller models to the luxury Genesis brand. The next big thing is the compact Kona SUV EV, scheduled for release in the first half of 2018.

Sonata Hybrid Offers Affordable Efficiency

The Hyundai Sonata offers both a standard hybrid and plug-in hybrid for people wanting superior fuel efficiency and low emission driving right now. The regular hybrid delivers 45 mpg on the highway while still providing a peppy 193 horsepower. Starting at just $26,000, it’s one of the most affordable electrified vehicles in the market and comes with tons of standard features, including proximity key entry, push button start and a 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment system that works with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The plug-in hybrid delivers 99 MPGe and comes with standard blind spot detection and navigation. The Sonata offers a modern, aerodynamic design with room for five adults. Test drive one today at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Ioniq Offers Great Range

For an innovative hatchback that provides both exceptional miles per gallon and great range, take a look at the new Ioniq. Also available as a pure electric vehicle and coming later this year with a plug-in hybrid option, the Hyundai Ioniq hybrid provides 58 mpg in combined city and highway driving. With a full charge and topped off gas tank you can go up to 690 miles without stopping. A whole host of technology and creature comforts make the Ioniq a rising star in the world of electrified vehicles. Pay close attention to Hyundai as the company continues to lead the way in environmentally-conscious vehicle development.

Providing plenty of utility without sacrificing the thrill that should come along with driving a sporty vehicle, the new Hyundai Elantra GT provides a price-sensitive option for people who need the versatility of a roomy hatchback. With a total interior volume of more than 120 cubic feet, the Elantra GT is classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as a “large” car despite its relatively small footprint. This makes it the perfect vehicle for ferrying people and stuff around a crowded urban environment. Test drive the Elantra GT today at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Design Evokes Fun-to-Drive Attitude

The flowing lines of the new Hyundai Elantra GT start at the front with the cascading grille that’s sandwiched between a set of LED running lights. Available LED headlights for both the high and low beams deliver a greater degree of safety and illumination than standard headlamps. Choose the base GT and you get aggressive 17-inch alloy wheels to dominate the profile of the car. Step up just a bit to the Sport model and the wheels are a full inch larger, giving the GT an even more muscular side view.

Plenty of Power to Go Around

Whether you choose the Base Hyundai Elantra GT or the Sport model, there’s plenty of power to satisfy most driving enthusiasts. The base model generates 161 horsepower and comes with either a six-speed manual or optional automatic transmission. The Sport model has a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 201 horsepower. It somes with a sporty six-speed shifter but you can also opt for the automatic transmission that comes with paddle shifters. The turbo Sport also generates a healthy 195 pound-feet of torque and maintains that power all the way up to 4,500 rpm, giving you plenty of acceleration when you need it most.

Standard Infotainment System Links to Smart Phone

Whether you have an Apple or Android smart phone, the infotainment system on the new Hyundai Elantra GT will give you countless hours of streaming music, podcasts or hands-free communication options. The interior on the new GT is very high-tech, with available wireless charging, ventilated and heated front seats and even an optional navigation system that comes with three free years of the Hyundai Blue Link Telemetry system. A supreme Infiniti audio system that will bathe you in concert-quality sound is also available. Don’t forget that Hyundai also has the industry’s best new car warranty, offering 5 years and 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage. The new Elantra GT starts at just $19,350.
