Hyundai Sonata Hybrid India Launch in the Offing?

2

The Toyota Camry Hybrid has surely caught the fancy of many premium sedan buyers. Not only has the Camry Hybrid managed to take the fight straight to some popular Diesel-sipping models, but it has also done its part to showcase the advantages of a Hybrid powertrain. Recently, Honda launched the Accord Hybrid, a car that is priced significantly higher than the Camry, but looks promising enough to find many takers. So, one thing that’s for sure is that India is slowly but surely warming up to Hybrid powertrains. While Toyota plans to soon launch the latest Prius, too, another car that could be headed our way is a premium sedan that rivals the Camry. Yes, we talk of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Here, in this report, you can find details on the new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid India launch, price, specifications, mileage, etc
