Hyundai kona hybrid
In Norway, the Hyundai Kona Electric electric crossover is in demand, but has not received a good response from the entire European market. At the same time, with a gasoline engine, the crossover fell to the taste of Europeans. And the hybrid variant, which began to appear in the EU in the fall of 2019, may be especially popular among Estonians and neighbors. The power plant of the Hyundai Kona Hybrid is based on a 1.6-liter gasoline engine and a synchronous electric motor, the total power of which is 141 hp. Combined fuel consumption is 3.9 l / 100 km.
Volkswagen Golf 8 GTE
The debut of the new Golf was perhaps one of the most anticipated events in the European automotive community. And in 2020, a 204-horsepower e-Hybrid based on a 1.4-liter petrol turbo engine and a rechargeable Golf GTE hybrid should appear in the range of available options for the new Golf, which will produce up to 245 horsepower in total.
Škoda Octavia iV
The new “Octavia” of the fourth generation in Europe was eagerly awaited: the Czech brand has won a solid reputation here, and the current Octavia A7 came out on top in sales not only in the Czech Republic, but also in Austria, Switzerland, Finland and Poland. At the presentation of the new generation machine, two versions of the hybrid installation were announced at once. Both are based on a 1.4-liter TSI, but their output is different: 204 or 245 horsepower. Both hybrids will be charged from a household power supply and will be able to drive on purely electric traction up to 50 km.
Kia Niro PHEV
The Korean brand, which is actively assimilating in Europe, until recently offered customers only a “self-loading” version of the Niro hybrid crossover. Now fans of “green” cars can pay attention to an even more economical (from 1.3 l / 100 km in the combined cycle) new version of the Niro 1.6 GDI Plug-in Hybrid with the ability to recharge batteries from external energy sources, capable of overcoming about 50 km without burning a drop of fuel – in electric vehicle mode.
Toyota RAV4 PHEV
Introduced in November 2019, the new RAV4 plug-in hybrid has the potential to be one of the most anticipated cars of the year. It is the most powerful member of the RAV4 lineup ever built by Toyota, with a 2.5-liter petrol engine and two electric hybrid powertrains producing 306 hp. and makes it possible to drive more than 50 km in electric vehicle mode. The RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid will officially enter the European market in the second half of 2020.
