The Sonata Hybrid is likely to serve as a litmus test; to garner people's attention and understand if there is demand for a hybrid mid-size sedan. Hyundai could consider launching the Sonata Hybrid, given that the segment in India already consists of the locally-assembled Toyota Camry hybrid and the soon-to-be-launched Honda Accord hybrid, as well as the benefits that hybrid vehicles can now avail from the government.
The Vision N 2025 is an exclusive design study that previews the capabilities of Hyundai's global design team, and offers Hyundai's perspective of a future race car.
