Continuing with our hunting season, we now find this Hyundai Tucson parked with some other cars but no other camouflage cars. Lets find out what brings this new Tucson.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]The Tucson is without a doubt one of the best looking crossover out there and it thanks to its new look acquire from the 2.0 fluidic sculpture design for its third generation. Sometimes looks can be deceiving but in this case customers also notice the new improving change on the Tucson, increasing the sold units to 63,591 in 2015 from 47,306 sold units in 2014.

Here is something weird, the new genereation of the Tucson was just released last year so it doesnt makes sense to receive a facelift at this early stage unless this was found too early.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]This could be the new Tucson hybrid models Hyundai promised back in Geneva. One hybrid with 48V Lithium-ion battery and 14hp electric motor plus a Plug-In hybrid with a range of 50 Kilometers with pure electric and can be charged in 5 hours at a standard power outlet, This electric motor should deliver 68hp with a 115hp diesel engine.

We might not see any changes on the design to the Tucson besides some internal to store the batteries for its eletric engine. Which is a wise move since a lot customer are loving the new design.


[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]The only one left for an update will be the Fuel Cell Tucson, that is very eager to sell more units. When it was first released back in 2013 it only sold 76 units, then in 2014 it sold 128 units and for 2015 it only sold 229 units to a total of 433, unable to even reach half of their goal of 1,000 units. This in fact could be the update that the model is needing and we hope it has the same success as the diesel model.

Stay tuned for more details!
