    Spying/Rumorpile: Meet Hyundai's Prius Fighter and Electric Vehicle

      Hyundai Readies Their Prius Fighter, Along With News Of A Electric Only Version

    With all the news surrounding Tesla fighters, it seems we have forgotten about the competitors to the Toyota Prius. But luckily Hyundai has been working on such a vehicle to take on the Prius. A fresh set of spy shots have come in of their Prius fighter this week.

     

    Now the shots show Hyundai taking some design ideas from the current Prius in terms of exterior styling. We also have the first shots of the interior which boasts a different gauge cluster complete with Eco/Power gauge.

     

    Autoblog says recent rumors have Hyundai's new hybrid being based on the next-generation Elantra and use a medium-sized lithium-polymer battery pack that could offer 38 miles of electric power. The gas engine will possibly be a 1.6L four-cylinder.

     

    But there is another twist to this story. A source tells Green Car Reports that Hyundai will offer a electric-only version of their Prius fighter sometime after the regular model is launched. A Hyundai spokesman declined to comment on the rumor.

    Very interesting, crazy cameo on the Hyundai and the 2016 Prius shows they continue to make it even more ugly.

    This information has me all charged up and ready for action.  TOO COOL.  :roflmao:

    Wonder how often a person working on the body damage of a Hybrid or EV ends up getting shocked  even when they follow all the safety guidelines.

    It's shocking enough that ppl actually buy this stuff, even in limited numbers.
