2016 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle is the next PHEV vehicle, which you can find in the dealerships. It has arrived this weekend in select showrooms across the United States, offering competitive price and exceptional 27-mile all-electric range.

And it all takes less than nine hours or a Level-Two 240V charging station in under three hours, to make a full charge.
