Hyundai has also increased the range of its mid-sized gas-electric sedan.
Hyundai has announced pricing for its revised 2018 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid range. Highlights for the new model year include a lower starting price and a boost in range.
Hyundai announced on Thursday that the 2018 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, which adopts the styling of the already-released 2018 gas-powered Sonata, will carry a base price of $33,250, representing a $1,350 discount compared to last year's model. Despite the lower price, the 2018 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid boasts a greater all-electric range — up 1 mile to 28 miles — and an EPA total driving range of 600 miles (+10 miles from last year).
The up-market Sonata Plug-In Hybrid Limited moves in the opposite direction for 2018 with a $250 price increase, netting a base MSRP of $38,850. However, you do get more bang for your buck, with amenities like automatic emergency braking, dynamic LED headlights, lane keep assist, a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging and second-row USB ports joining the Sonata Plug-In Hybrid Limited's standard features list.
All prices exclude an $885 destination charge and an available federal tax credit of $4,919.
The 2018 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid is available at dealerships nationwide now.
