Hyundai Working on an LPG Hybrid Elantra

Hyundai is working to create an liquid petroleum gas (LPG) hybrid car, but only for South Korea. 

This is typical of Hyundai, a company which has created a fleet of hybrid, but for the most part, only in South Korea and mostly for the government who sponsors them.

Considering how much they advertise in the US and seem to want to bring their profile up, you would think they would release some of their hybrid cars in North America.  After all, look what having a hybrid on the road has done for the reputation of Toyota and Honda.  While having hybrids isn't the be all and end all, of course, it certainly helps.

The LPG Hybrid Elantra will be available in 2010.  It will be powered by LPG and lithium polymer batteries

In their press release, Hyundai claims "Comparing operating costs among different types of hybrid vehicles currently available in the market place, the Elantra LPI HEV promises to be the cheapest of all to run."
