Hyundai to Show 38MPG Santa-Fe Hybrid Concept in Paris

Hyundai Santa FeAlongside the new i20 supermini and the low-emissions i20 i-blue concept, Hyundai’s Paris Motor Show stand will also host the world premier of the Santa FE Concept that is equipped with a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. Hyundai hasn't released any pictures yet but the Korean automaker said that the concept maintains the overall design of the existing Santa Fe.

Under the hood the concept features a new hybrid drive system, which mates the current 2.4-litre petrol engine to a six-speed automatic transmission and a 30kW electric motor powered by lithium-ion batteries. According to Hyundai, the result is CO2 emissions of 148g/km and an average fuel consumption figure of 38 mpg US or 6.2 lt-100km.
