In fact, according to Hyundai's description for the car, it could be a plug-in hybrid or an electric car with its range extended by a combustion engine, but we will only be sure about it when the car is officially presented, on April 2.
The combustion engine used by BLUE-WILL is a direct injection petrol 1.6-litre powerplant, mated to a CVT and to a 100 kW (136 bhp) electric engine. Besides the propulsion system, the new car also presents biodegradable plastics and solar panels to help it obtain electricity. We may not have to wait long to see this car into production lines. Prius will surely have a hard time from now on.
