2022 Hyundai Tucson PHEV, Santa Fe PHEV Pricing is Announced

Customers looking for a plug-in hybrid SUV at a reasonable price now have more options than just the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Toyota RAV4 Prime.

The Ford Escape PHEV is finally starting to land in dealerships, and don’t forget the Koreans. Hyundai, for instance, is adding not one but two models to its lineup.

The 2022 Tucson PHEV is available in two trim levels including Luxury and Ultimate. Pricing starts at $43,499 and $46,199 (plus destination and handling), respectively. In both cases, there are seven body colours to choose from, while the interior can be appointed in black or two-tone grey leather.

A turbocharged 1.6-litre gasoline engine combines with a 66.9-kilowatt electric motor and 13.8-kWh lithium-ion battery, making this Tucson the most powerful you can buy. A six-speed automatic transmission sends 261 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels with the help of Hyundai’s HTRAC all-wheel drive system.

The 2022 Santa Fe PHEV is also available in two trim levels—Preferred and Luxury. The former is priced from $44,999 and comes exclusively in white with black fabric seats, which sounds pretty bland. The latter starts at $48,499 and offers a selection of five body colours, while the seats are finished in black or beige leather (same thing for the dashboard and door accents).

The powertrain is identical to that of the smaller Tucson PHEV, so you have the same output and torque. Natural Resources Canada gives the electrified Santa Fe a zero-emission range of 50 kilometres, but the number for the Tucson is not listed at the time of writing.

One last thing, and it’s an important one: these two SUVs and their two respective models are eligible to the $2,500 PHEV rebate from the federal government as well as provincial incentives of up to $4,000 depending on where you live.  

Once again, availability will likely prove to be an issue, but we bet you won’t have to wait up to two years like some RAV4 Prime customers.
