Pre-orders for Hyundai hybrid exceed 1,000

Hyundai is reporting pre-launch orders of more than 1,000 for its first hybrid vehicle. The Elantra LPI Hybrid is set to arrive in Korean showrooms on July 8. It is the world’s first hybrid to use liquefied petroleum gas and lithium polymer batteries.

The orders have exceeded expectations, with Hyundai announcing on July 2 that in just two weeks, the company had received more than 1,000 pre-launch orders in Korea. This despite the fact that Korean customers are still largely unacquainted with hybrid vehicles and that the Elantra’s price is expected to be higher than conventional gas versions.

In Korea, the main purchaser of the Elantra compact has traditionally been younger. Hence, the fact that 60% of contractors for this hybrid version are 40 years of age or older signifies the increased interest in fuel efficiency and heightened environmental awareness among older drivers.

Hyundai is confident that the Elantra LPI hybrid, propelled by a Liquefied Petroleum Injected engine, will exceed competitors in terms of fuel efficiency and environmental protection.
