Hyundai has launched its first plug-in electric vehicle (EV) at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is expected to travel up to 22 miles on electric power and can recharge in as little as two and a half hours with a Level 2 (240-volt) charger.

The Sonata PHEV is expected to deliver 93 MPGe combined in EV mode based on internal estimates. In charge sustaining mode, the Sonata PHEV is expected to return 38 mpg in the city, 43 mpg on the highway and 40 mpg combined based on internal testing, according to Hyundai.

The Sonata PHEV will be built at Hyundai's Asan, South Korea plant and will go on sale in select markets later this year.
