2022 Hyundai Tucson Plug-In Hybrid Starts at $34,750 in the US

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson Plug-In Hybrid will deliver efficiency and serious performance

  • AWD is standard unlike one of its competitors.

  • The top Limited trim is priced at $42,550.

  • EV range is 32 miles or 53 km.

When the Hyundai Motor Group takes a stand, such as deciding to introduce plug-in hybrid vehicles in major segments, they deliver. Within only a few years, they’ve launched a number of EVs and are now filling the gaps between them and the ICE with a plug-in hybrid. The new 2022 Hyundai Tucson Plug-In Hybrid will be a popular SUV.

At $34,750, the Hyundai Tucson PHEV SEL is delivered with the same turbocharged 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine and a 66.9 kW electric motor as found in the larger Kia Sorento. The total combined system output is a compelling 261 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque. Thanks to the 13.8 kWh battery, the Sorento will be able to cover up to 32 miles or 53 km without petrol.

With its many included features, the Tucson under cuts the $38,350 2021 Toyota RV4 Prime by nearly $4,000 with more features. It’s more expensive than the $33,075 2021 Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid, by $1,675 but it’s important to note the Ford is FWD only, is far less powerful, and has fewer amenities.
