Hyundai hybrid seems to (technically) look a lot like Elantra, which will be revealed at the same time, but will differ from it in terms of design. With that in mind, Hyundai seems to actually be throwing hints at their vehicle being Toyota Prius' main 'antagonist'.

Rumor has it, Hyundai is hiding something under the skin - something that the upcoming redesigned Prius most likely won't have. As they wish to save space and increase EV-only range (which is said to be up to 70 kilometers), they decided to equip their new hybrid with a lithium polymer battery pack. The batteries will power the electric motor, which will roam jointly with the 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine.

The interior design of the new Hyundai hybrid will probably follow the latest design seen in other car models produced by the Korean automotive company. The instruments are more likely to be analog rather than digital, as seen in Prius. Prototype's interior also reveals one screen that's likely to house infotainment and energy monitoring functions.
