The star of the stand is a first for Korean manufacturer Asian setting as first diesel-electric hybrid, trying to explore a segment that already rivals are preparing to begin.
Hyundai iFlow is powered by a 1.7-liter turbo diesel engine, mated to an electric motor, which is kept alive by a set of lithium-ion batteries. The ensemble is completed by a twin-clutch transmission and six reports.
The Korean engineers thought it as a winner, considering that the average consumption figure is 3 liters per 100 km and the amount of emissions fell to 85 g/km.
