Hyundai plug-in hybrid concept called the BLUE-WILL, features a direct-inject 1.6-liter gas engine mated to a CVT transmission and 100kw electric motor. It has a state of the art lithium ion polymer batter pack that’s packaged with the fuel tank below the rear seats, as well as a trick panoramic roof that integrates solar cells while still being able to see through.
The BLUE-WILL also features eco-friendly plastics, with some components, like the headlamp bezels, made out of recycled plastic bottles and other plastics derived from plant extracts. Hyundai claims the parallel hybrid can be tethered to a wall socket for extra amps.
