Lithium Ion Hyundai Elantra! - Thursday, November 1st, 2007

Like the Chevy Volt, Hyundai announced future plans build a hybrid version of the Elantra using lithium batteries. The vehicle should be available no earlier than 2010.

Lithium batteries have yet to be used in hybrid vehicles for safety and cost reasons, however Hyundai has partnered with LG Electronics to find a cost effective way to get the price of lithium ion batteries down for use in next-gen hybrids and also to find a way to make them safer. Should this happen there will be a definite increase in fuel efficiency in today’s hybrid vehicles.
