Hyundai Blue-Will Plug-in Hybrid at the Seoul Auto Show

Hyundai is bringing its new concept, the plug-in hybrid Blue-Will to the 2009 Seoul Auto Show scheduled for April 2.

The plug-in hybrid is powered by a 1.6-liter direct-injection gas motor mated in a parallel system to a 100-kilowatt electric motor. It also has continuously variable transmission.

The electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion polymer battery pack, which is partially recharged through solar panels on the roof.  The glass area 'integrates dye-sensitized solar cells which can generate power from the sun without impeding visibility.

Hyundai is emphasizing recycling with their blue car. They used recycled soft-drink bottles to make the material used in the headlamp bezels, and biodegradable plastics are used for the engine cover and interior.

Hyundai is planning on selling their first hybrid, the Elantra LPI Hybrid in South Korea sometime in July.  The Elantra will also have lithium-ion polymer battery pack, the first in a mass production vehicle according to Hyundai.
