Jan. 28, 2013 - PRLog -- If it didn’t seem like the winds of change were in the air before, now it’s hard to deny. Shaffer Hyundai in Merrillville, IN is happy to say that the sea change on the horizon is toward the predominance of efficient hybrid and alternative-fuel vehicles. One of the harbingers of wide acceptance of this new technology in cars is their use in big fleets, especially those run by government agencies. Government agencies need dependable and long-lasting vehicles, and now, government fleets in the United States prefer the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid to any other vehicle.

The Sonata Hybrid toppled the previous leader, the Ford Fusion hybrid. The Obama administration has made a serious pledge to purchase only alternative-fuel vehicles by 2015. The president and government agencies started to make good on that pledge starting in 2009, and the government has purchased nearly 20,000 alternatively fueled vehicles since then.

The 2013 Sonata Hybrid has proven popular with both the public and the government due to a number of factors. It provides great fuel economy while still providing plenty of power with 206 hp. The power comes from the same four-cylinder engine that comes in the gas-powered Sonata, but it is supplemented by a 30 kW electric motor. The Hyundai Sonata hybrid stores power in a lightweight lithium-polymer battery, and sends power to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The Sonata Hybrid also clocks in at a base MSRP of only $25,850 MSRP, making it an affordable alternative to traditional gas-powered vehicles.
