2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid Starts North of $40K
The Hyundai Santa Fe received a significant refresh for 2021, gaining a bold new grille up front and a trendy full-width taillight around back. There were also new powertrains, including a traditional hybrid setup, but for 2022 the Santa Fe gets even more eco-friendly with the addition of a plug-in-hybrid variant. We learned the details of the PHEV’s powertrain earlier this year and now Hyundai has released pricing information for the Santa Fe plug-in hybrid.
The plug-in powertrain comes on two trim levels. The base SEL starts at $40,535 and nets you Hyundai’s digital key, Smart Sense safety features, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and an 8.0-inch infotainment screen. Upgrading to the Limited will cost $46,545 and adds the Smart Park system, a 360-degree camera, ventilated leather seats, and a 10.3-inch infotainment screen. All Santa Fe PHEVs are powered by a 177-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and 90-hp electric motor feeding off a battery with an estimated 12 kWh of usable capacity. The system sends the combined 260 hp to all four wheels, and the PHEV gets an EPA-estimated 76 MPGe and 30 miles of pure electric driving range. When the battery is depleted, the Santa Fe PHEV returns 33 combined mpg according to the EPA.
