Hyundai Grandeur Hybrid Unveiled In S. Korea
Hyundai expands its Korean-market hybrid car range by launching the Grandeur hybrid car in South Korea.
Hyundai has officially unveiled the Grandeur hybrid car on Sunday, while the Korean-market sales have commenced today.
The hybrid-electric version of the popular Grandeur near-luxury sedan is already the third hybrid car in the Hyundai range.
Previously, Hyundai’s hybrid range has been limited to smaller hybrids such as Elantra and Sonata hybrid cars.
With the introduction of the near-luxury hybrid vehicle, Hyundai has expressed intention to lead the market for eco-friendly luxury cars.

According to Hyundai, the model achieves 16 kilometers per liter.
The gas-powered Grandeur achieves no more than 11.3 km per liter of fuel, so the fuel economy the hybrid version achieve is quite an improvement!
One of the features that other hybrids on the market rarely offer is the artificial engine sound system which turns on when the car runs on its electric motor.
Hyundai Grandeur hybrid will be offered with a series of special guarantee services including a free warranty for all car parts within ten years or 200,000 kilometers and a 30-day vehicle exchange program.
Hyundai’s range-topping hybrid car is priced at 34.6 million won (approximately $34,500) which is roughly 4-million more than the regular gas-powered model.
