Hyundai Tucson PHEV Will Have 265 PS

New plug-in hybrid Hyundai Tucson will deliver impressive efficiency and power


  • Hybrid system will be matched up to a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine.

  • Arrives in Europe in the spring of 2021.

  • It should arrive in North America before the end of 2021.


The Hyundai Tucson is one of the best-selling compact SUVs in Canada and Hyundai would like to see it earn the title of the best-selling SUV before long. The all-new 2022 Tucson is completely redesigned and, with this new generation, Hyundai will cover all bases, including introducing a new PHEV version.

2022 Hyundai Tucson N Line Revealed

We already knew about the PHEV, which will join the hybrid and N Line versions, but now we have details about the plug-in powertrain. A 66.9 kW electric motor will be paired with Hyundai’s turbocharged 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine for a grand total of 265 PS (261 horsepower) and 350 Nm (258 lb.-ft.) of torque.

All Tucson PHEV will benefit from Hyundai’s HTRAC four-wheel drive technology and a Terrain Mode selector, and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Optionally, the SUV can be fitted with an Electronically Controlled Suspension (ECS) with adaptive damping technology.

Joining the fray is a 13.8 kWh battery that will be recharged quickly enough by the onboard 7.2 kW charger. On a full charge, the battery, located beneath the body, will deliver an estimated 50+km of EV range (WLTP). We’re guessing this will translate to approximately 40km of real-world range, a long way off the Toyota RAV4 Prime’s 68km of range.

The Tucson PHEV arrives in Europe in the spring of 2021 and should make its way to North America before the end of 2021.
