Designed to make a statement
Big, bold and beautiful, the new SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid is not for the faint of heart. Built to command the road, it also commands a lot of attention. Its wide stance and completely reimagined design will have heads turning.
Clever comfort and convenience
The new SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid offers you the very best in comfort and convenience with a highly versatile seating system and a host of intelligent features like the Smart Power Tailgate and tailgate open guide. Increased boot space and clever storage compartments will always come in handy, while increased second and third row legroom will certainly be appreciated when you’ve got a car-full.
Easy third row access
Slide the second row seats out of the way at the touch of a button for easy access to the third row. It’s a little feature that helps a lot.

Rear occupant alert
For your peace of mind, the new SANTA FE uses ultrasonic sensors to monitor the rear seats. If the system detects movement in any of the rear seats after the driver has left the vehicle, the horn will sound and the lights will flash.

KRELL’s premium audio system comes standard on all trims and delivers an immersive surround sound experience for everyone on board with 10 high-end speakers and an external amplifier.
Featuring class-leading luminance for easy visibility, the head-up display on the Ultimate trim helps you stay safe by projecting important information like speed, navigation commands and warnings directly onto the windscreen.
Wireless phone charging
Located in the centre console across all trims, a wireless charging pad lets you easily charge a compatible smartphone without the use of cables.
Ventilated front seats
The front seats are available with a three-step ventilation system for a comfortable drive, whatever the weather. Standard on Ultimate trim.
New hybrid powertrain for more efficiency and power
With its dynamic pairing of a turbocharged petrol direct injection and powerful battery-powered electric motor, the new SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid is taking fuel efficiency to the next level. All without you having to charge a battery or change your driving habits. The hybrid switches seamlessly between the electric motor and conventional engine, sometimes utilising both at the same time.
Space saving new platform
The new SANTA FE plug-in Hybrid is built on an entirely new platform designed with hybrids in mind. This allows lots of smart innovations – for example, the battery now sits under the passenger seats, providing a boost in efficiency with no impact on cabin or luggage space.
Powerful electric motor
The SANTA FE plug-in Hybrid’s 44.2 kW electric motor delivers high torque and efficiency while also providing impressive acceleration off the line.
Lithium-ion polymer battery
The 1.49 kWh high-power battery has superior charge/discharge characteristics, maximising both electric driving and energy storage.
New 6-speed automatic transmission
A newly developed 6-speed automatic transmission further enhances SANTA FE’s impressive efficiency credentials.
Drive and terrain mode selector
Fine tune the new SANTA FE Hybrid’s driving characteristics to suit the road conditions – or to suit your mood. Sport Mode will enhance the car’s performance with modified throttle response, shift points and steering effort. Eco Mode delivers enhanced fuel efficiency with modified acceleration, shift points and air conditioning performance, while Comfort Mode delivers regular performance with good efficiency.
Selecting Snow Mode will give you more control and minimise wheel slip when driving in snowy conditions. It does so by adjusting engine torque, gear shift pattern, traction control and all-wheel drive torque distribution.
Sand Mode helps you achieve a smooth take off and controlled performance in soft and high-resistant road conditions by adjusting engine torque, gear shift pattern, traction control and all-wheel drive torque distribution.
In Mud Mode, engine torque, gear shift pattern, traction control and all-wheel drive torque distribution are adjusted to suit slippery, high-resistant road conditions.
MacPherson suspension provides enhanced stability and ride performance, while rear multi-link suspension delivers a more comfortable ride and takes up less space.
Lots of ways to charge
Thanks to its innovative powertrain technology, charging your new SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid can be quick and convenient. Choose from home installation options and the ever-increasing number of public charging stations when you’re out and about. When you’re plugged in at home, you can remotely schedule charging via your smartphone and Bluelink® app during low-demand hours for lower electricity rates.
Home wall box / AC charging station
Depending on your grid connection at home or the type of public charging station you have access to, you have several possibilities for charging. One of which is the a wall box or an AC charging station.
ICCB cable for domestic power sockets
You can connect to a regular household power socket using the ICCB-cable (in-cable control box). SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid comes equipped with a 7.2 kW on-board charger, which converts AC power from the wall socket to DC power that charges the battery in the vehicle.
Charging cable for AC charging stations
You can connect the SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid to public AC charging points by cable. The same cable can also be used to connect to a home wall box.
