Hyundai Sonata Hybrid to debut at LA autoshow

Hyundai is to show a petrol/electric Sonata saloon at the Los Angeles autoshow in November. This will have new generation lithium-ion batteries, and will be based on the facelifted 2009 Sonata sedan. However, it will not reach production until 2010.

Hyundai is not importing the revised Sonata to the UK, thanks to very slow sales. Instead, it is waiting for its all new mid-sized model, dubbed i40. This comes to Europe in late 2010, and will be completely different to the U.S Sonata. The i40 will be available as a sedan and wagon, with the latter expected to be the most popular in the UK.
