Upcoming Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Features New Solar Panel Roof

With each passing year, cars are becoming more innovative in what they can do. For Hyundai, the upcoming model year is full of surprises, especially for the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. If you're an eco-friendly Knoxville driver, you prioritize fuel economy and want to minimize vehicle emissions. As the hybrid market continues to blossom in Tennessee, Hyundai is striving to gain an edge over its local competitors. With the reveal of the solar panel roof, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid gains a distinct look and improves eco-friendly driving.

How Does the Solar Panel Roof Work in the New Sonata Hybrid?

The 2020 Sonata Hybrid will be the first member of the Hyundai lineup to utilize a solar panel roof. While it may appear like a traditional sunroof, the solar panel roof operates on another level. It works to recharge your car's battery and helps prevent unnecessary discharge. When the solar panel roof charges for six hours a day, it can add an extra 808 miles to the annual travel distance of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Think about what a positive impact those additional miles will make on your weekday commutes in nearby Maryville, TN.

What Does Performance Look Like in the 2020 Sonata Hybrid?

While the solar panel roof is one of the bigger surprises in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, it's not the only one. The six-speed automatic transmission with Active Shift Control pairs with the new 2.0-liter four-cylinder (150 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque) and an electric motor that expands the car to 192 horsepower. This combination will bring about better efficiency, acceleration, and smoothness as you drive between Knoxville and Farragut, TN via I-40 E.
