Re: New Hybrid MPG

Did a 81 mile journey today mainly on M40 and M25. Plenty of start/stop on M25 and restricted speed limits. Hybrid in its element in these conditions. Achieved 55.8 mpg - impressive!

Re: Self charging EV only range?

I don’t believe there is an electric only mode on the self charging hybrid; the car automatically decides on the optimum use/balance of electric power and petrol engine. Clearly when the green EV comes on you are using stored electric power but I am unaware of any means by which the driver can opt f...

Re: Why does my new Tucson forget settings?

I have sent an email to my dealership about settings being reset/changed without input from the driver. I received a prompt response saying that the issue wasn’t known by their service team but they have passed it on to Hyundai technical. I picked my car up on 31 March and was informed it had the la...

Re: Why does my new Tucson forget settings?

I too have had one instance of clock not showing the right time and one reset to 22 degrees. Seems unexplained why this happens and hopefully a software update will resolve it.

Early Impressions

Have now been driving my 230 HEV Ultimate for 3 weeks. Overall, very pleased with it. Positives: Comfortable, quiet, economical (averaging 45 mpg from mainly local/short trips but have achieved 68 mpg on one 10 mile journey). Expect the average mpg to increase with a few longer journeys and engine l...
