The hybrid powertrain gets a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission and a 1.32 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery with a maximum output of 42 kW. The electric motor provides an electric-only driving mode with instant torque at low speeds and additional power at high speeds. Hyundai expects Elantra Hybrid to achieve 50 mpg in combined city / highway driving when it receives EPA certification.
