Hyundai is also planning to unveil the 2020 Ionic at the Los Angeles Auto Show this month. The Sonata Hybrid will debut at the Chicago Auto Show next year.
Hyundai Motor America Vice President (Product, Corporate and Digital Planning) Mike O’Brien explains that the company is prepared to meet the needs of the environment and meet the diverse needs of its customers. Hyundai aims to achieve a diverse range of models with the possibility of an alternative propulsion suitable for the new era.
