Hyundai Santa Fe hybrid concept coming to Paris with 39mpg

We’re making this post using the new Google Chrome browser (just letting you guys know in case it comes out weird). Moving on – as we told you earlier this morning Hyundai will be showing the new i20 at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. Well, it seems like that not the only eco-friendly vehicle that Hyundai will be showing next month.

The Korean automaker has also announced that it will show i20 i-blue – a low emissions version of the new i20 powered by a 1.4 liter diesel engine producing 90-hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Fuel-economy is estimated at 57 mpg.

Along with the i20 i-blue, Hyundai will also show its a Santa Fe Hybrid concept that will be powered by a 2.4 liter petrol engine mated to a 30kW electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. Hyundai says that the fuel-economy is estimated at 39 mpg with CO2 emissions of 148g/km.
