Just enough battery to do the job...
I commute 34 miles each way to work. The battery on this car has been able to get me almost all the way to work with minimal use of gas (like 2 to 14 miles of gas depending on my charge percentage). When I charge at work, I have actually been able to get all the way home just on battery. I am 6'7" tall and I fit very comfortably in this car. And, that actually says a lot considering I am a very large man as well. Being able to fit was obviously my number one most important criteria. My buying decision also included carpool lane access criteria. This car is allowed to drive in the carpool lane in Utah. But, you have to have a C Decal, which is won only through a lottery process. I happened to already have access with my Prius, so I was allowed to transfer the permit. My third factor was tax credits. This vehicle is eligible in Utah for $1000 of tax credits at the state level. And, it is eligible for around $5000 of tax credits at the federal level. So, that knocks $6000 off the price at tax time (assuming you are able to claim it). It is good to know that if you can't take all of the deductions or credits in year one, then the government will allow you to take the remaining credit the following year. When gas prices are low, the breakeven period for this car takes much longer. But, high gas prices can make the break even period much shorter. Of course, the price of electricity is also a critical factor. The fact that this car has a lifetime warranty on its battery (for the first buyer) is comforting. I was told that the battery warranty is not transferable, so that is something to consider. I think that this PHEV (plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) offering is one of the most compelling in the segment. The Prius prime gets 15 miles per gallon better fuel efficiency, but you lose one of the back seats. And, you gain 5 miles of electric-only range in the Sonata. And, that is a big deal for people with a 34 mile each way commute like myself. The Ford C-Max received very poor ratings by consumer reports, so that one is out. The Audi E-Tron is a very fun car to drive, but it is smaller and has lower specs on both gas mileage and electric-only range. The Kia Optima looked comparable (or perhaps a bit better), but it is not available in Utah at this time. Availability in your state depends on whether or not a given dealer has two trained technicians that can work on PHEVs. I admit that I am still very new to this experience of driving electric cars, but I love how quiet the car drives. And, I love the thought of saving money and avoiding gas stations whenever possible. So, as for me, I believe this vehicle is an outstanding value. I am not a tree hugger by any means, but this car makes me happy from the standpoint of keeping money in my pocketbook. So, I say it is a great buy! I am a mechanical engineer, and I am not easily impressed. But, this one is impressive.
Great ride and value
I have always been a Toyota or Honda owner the luxury and comfort of this car is great and the technology and user friendliness beats both Toyota and Honda.
Great commuter
I don't normally review anything, but I feel compelled to write about this car. With a daily round trip commute of 108 miles, I was tired of the constant trips to gas stations and the expense. After just a month with this car, I am blown away. It is the most economical, practical, comfortable commuter vehicle that you can buy. Never being a big fan of Hyundai, I was skeptical on a number of fronts - reliability/quality, comfort, and ride quality. This car is ghostly silent with a perfect driving position, comfortable seating and good ergonomics. Having owned a number of luxury cars and currently an owner of a BMW X5 Diesel (also a great economical SUV) I am really impressed with ride and build quality. I am currently running 33-34 miles on pure electric and averaging close to 80 MPGs for my commute. I plug it in at night and at work - 110V outlet takes about 8-9 hours. Too early to give a report on long term reliability, but with 100K powertrain warranty and lifetime battery warranty I am covered for alt least 4 years of commuting. Good looking vehicle - conservatively sharp, without the typical Hybrid space ship looks. One word - impressed.

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid isn't coy about what makes it special — it is quite obviously the plug-in hybrid version of the Hyundai Sonata family sedan. But what does that include, exactly? Well, with a much larger battery than the one in the regular Sonata hybrid, it can travel 27 miles on electricity alone before effectively becoming a regular hybrid and returning 39 mpg combined. It's also capable of being replenished by plugging the car into a wall socket or a dedicated charging station you can install in the garage or find in various spots around town.

Those figures may pale in comparison to what you'd get from some other more dedicated hybrids — plug-in or otherwise — but it's important to remember that with the Sonata you're getting a more spacious, family-friendly vehicle. It's considerably quieter and more refined, with a well-made cabin that eschews the typical futuristic design aesthetic typical of advanced green cars. Visually, it doesn't draw attention to its eco-ness, which can be a plus for many. Now, it does have a rather small trunk, but among plug-in hybrid sedans, it's actually among the biggest you can get.

The Sonata Plug-In Hybrid's powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor powered by a 9.8-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Total system output is 202 hp. Given its 27 miles of estimated range and 39-mpg combined battery-depleted estimate, the EPA indicates the Sonata Plug-In Hybrid will return a 99 miles per gallon equivalent. That compares favorably to other plug-in hybrids.

Two trim levels are available: base and Limited. Even the base car includes alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a hands-free trunklid, keyless ignition and entry, a leather-wrapped wheel, heated front seats, a power driver seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, an 8-inch touchscreen and satellite radio. The Limited adds high-end items such as xenon headlights, leather, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, adaptive cruise control and additional accident-avoidance tech.

That's a ton of standard equipment, but know that, as a result, the Sonata does have a higher base price than its rivals. It's not quite the budget buy you might expect from a Hyundai, but it's also good enough that you get what you pay for. As such, the 2017 Sonata Plug-In Hybrid is a must test-drive for anyone looking for such an eco-friendly car. Let Edmunds help you find the perfect match and a great deal on a new Sonata sedan.
