New Hyundai Hybrids and EVs in Vestal, NY

While internal combustion engines have advanced significantly in the car's 120-year+ history, their inherent fuel economy limitations and collective environmental impact have spurred the search for alternatives. Gas-only engines are still the industry's primary fuel source, but hybrid and electric vehicles are quickly gaining ground as more drivers seek improved efficiency and lower emissions for their daily drives.

Electric powertrains are significantly more efficient in converting their potential energy to horsepower, making them less expensive to operate and more environmentally compatible. Hyundai is embracing the transition to a more sustainable automotive future as it strives towards its long-term goal of complete carbon neutrality. And with a diverse lineup of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicles already on its roster, the company is well on its way. Below, you'll find an explanation of the various degrees of electrification and a quick overview of Hyundai's available models.

Electric Vehicles

Fully electric cars offer the smallest environmental footprint and the biggest savings on maintenance and fuel.

Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids have a rechargable electric motor and a gas-powered engine to extend range if needed.

Traditional Hybrid

Powered by an electric motor and gas-powered engine, Hybrids recharge as you drive. Tax credits and other benefits may not apply.

Hybrid Vehicles

If you’re interested in a vehicle that doesn’t require constant charging but provides the efficiency benefits of a plug-in hybrid, then there’s a Hyundai hybrid to consider. The Hyundai Hybrid lineup consist of the Tucson Hybrid, and Santa Fe Hybrid. The Tucson fits in as a deceptively spacious and well-equipped urban cruiser with seating for five and a robust set of comfort and driver assistance features. The Santa Fe Hybrid brings more versatility to Endicott, NY roads thanks to increased adventuring capability. The Tucson Hybrid can be had in a variety of trims, which includes Blue, SEL Convenience, and Limited. The Blue trim comes standard with a 1.6-liter turbocharged hybrid engine while also offering all-wheel drive and a suite of driver assistance features. The Santa Fe Hybrid offers drivers three trims, as well. The Santa Fe Hybrid can be had in the Blue, SEL Premium, and Limited trims. The Santa Fe Hybrid boasts a 1.6-liter turbocharged hybrid engine, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, all-wheel drive, and a hands-free smart liftgate.

Electric Vehicles

As it stands, the Hyundai lineup offers two pure-electric vehicles. There’s the IONIQ 5 along with the Kona Electric. The IONIQ 5 slots in as a dashingly stylish model that features 303 miles of maximum driving range, serious tech, and a standard suite of driver assistance features. Electric vehicles make for excellent vehicles for most any driving needs, with the IONIQ 5 excelling as a family vehicle, solo commuter, and casual adventure vehicle. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is available to Johnson City, NY drivers in four trim levels: SE Standard Range, SE, SEL, and Limited. The IONIQ 5 SE Standard Range offers up 220 miles of driving range on a full charge, 168 horsepower, ultra-fast charging, a 12.3-inch HD touchscreen display, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The Kona Electric fits in as a compact electric SUV that boasts 201 horsepower, 258 miles of driving range, and two trim options (SEL, Limited).

Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles

The Hyundai Plug-In hybrid lineup features the same two models as the hybrid lineup, just in plug-in hybrid variants. The Tucson Plug-In Hybrid and Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid both fall in as model options. The Tucson Plug-In Hybrid manages 33 miles of driving range on a full charge along with all-wheel drive and a modern set of tech, comfort and convenience features. The Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid offers up 30 miles of all-electric driving range for Windsor, NY drivers to enjoy along with all-wheel drive, smartphone connectivity, 261 horsepower, and a hands-free smart liftgate.

Understanding Charging

Charging times vary depending of the type of charger used.

Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.

Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible.

Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.

Charging from Home

For plugin hybrid vehicles a standard outlet (Level 1) will be enough for overnight charging. For battery electric vehicles, a Level 2 charger will require professional installation by a licensed electrician. If you live in an apartment or condo, consider talking with the property owner about installing a charger or use a nearby public charger. Talk to our sales staff to find out more about charging from home.

Battery Care

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number will continue to increase. If you can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged most days and avoid extremely hot temperatures, you can expect your maintenance to be minimal.

Common Questions

A federal tax rebate of $7,500 is available on most EV models. Depending on where you live, state and local rebates and incentives may also be available. Check with your sales associate to find out if the model is eligible for rebates and incentives.

Other advantages of owning an EV include:

  • Eligible EVs may also qualify for HOV lane access, which are normally restricted to vehicles with multiple passengers.
  • Many electric companies offer lower rates based on the time of use. With EVs, you can save money by charging during off-peak times.
  • If you're able to charge from work or home, there's usually no need to stop to refuel like you would in a gas-powered vehicle.
  • EVs produce zero tail-pipe emissions resulting in cleaner air and better health.

This will vary depending on the local price of electricity and gas and where you are charging (at home or public charger), but most EV owners can expect to save on fuel cost. A recent Consumer Reports study found the “typical EV owner who does most of their fueling at home can expect to save an average of $800 to $1,000 a year on fueling costs over an equivalent gasoline-powered car.”

A recent Consumer Reports study found “maintenance and repair costs for EVs are significantly lower over the life of the vehicle – about half – than for gasoline–powered vehicles, which require regular fluid changes and are more mechanically complex. The average dollar savings over the lifetime of the vehicle is about $4,600.”

Gas powered vehicles offer a range of 300-400mi. Battery electric vehicles offer a median range of 250mi. For EV owners who charge at home, this is more than enough for daily use. For longer drives beyond the range of your vehicle, check a public charger map for charger availability along your route.
  • Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.

  • Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible.

  • Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.
Yes, Level 1 and Level 2 chargers can be used at home. In fact, the standard 120V outlet supports a Level 1 charger. Level 2 chargers require 240V and can be installed by a licensed electrician. If you do not own your home, you may need to work with your property owner to install a Level 2 charger.
Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number should continue to increase.
