The 2022 Hyundai Tucson has yet to reach dealerships, but that isn't stopping the automaker from introducing two new variants. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson N Line and 2022 Hyundai Tucson Plug-in Hybrid join the lineup and will be available in the spring and summer, respectively.

The new Hyundai Tucson N Line is designed to appeal to enthusiast buyers and has looks that fall into the N Line design precedent set by the Sonata N Line and Elantra N Line with a more aggressive appearance. Hyundai also says that it has motorsport-inspired details.

The Tucson N Line builds on the Tucson SEL and includes the features from the Convenience package. Unlike other upgraded Hyundais, the N Line model has no performance enhancements.

Its exterior features N Line front and rear bumper fascia, an N Line grille, black headlamp bezels, Fender N line badging, 19-inch black alloy wheels, black side mirrors and window surrounds, a dual-tipped exhaust, and N Line rear spoiler.

The interior of the SUV has N line logos, steering wheel, shifter, and seats. There's also a black headliner, metal pedals and door sill plates, and a Bose premium audio system. N Line interior details include N-branded black leather sport seats with cloth inserts and red stitching on the door trim and armrest. N logos accent the shifter console surround, metal pedals, footrest and doorsills.

Hyundai will sell the model in Ash Black, White Pearl, Titan Gray, and Red Crimson paint colors. The red is exclusive to the Hyundai family.

Hyundai says that this model focuses on balancing fun-to-drive performance and fuel economy. The SUV is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter hybrid engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It achieves 261 horsepower and combines with a 13.8-kilowatt-hour battery to yield 32 miles of all-electric range. Fuel economy is rated at 70 MPGe and 30 mpg.

All-wheel drive and Snow drive mode are standard.

The vehicle is capable of charging via a Level II (240-volt) system using the on-board 7.2-kilowatt on-board charger. It takes two hours to charge the battery on this type of power source.

Hyundai rates the Tucson Plug-In Hybrid as having a 2,000-pound towing capacity.

Hyundai is backing both models with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, five-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, and even-year anti-perforation warranty. Three years/36,000 miles of normal oil changes and tire rotations are also included.

The Ioniq 5 can return over 300 miles of range.


Hyundai's EV lineup is growing, and its first Ioniq-branded vehicle is almost here. The Ioniq 5 is a compact EV with sharp, pixelated styling, exciting functionality, and the longest wheelbase in Hyundai's U.S. product line. Today, the automaker announced EPA range estimates for the Ioniq 5, which are strong enough to make the EV a heavy hitter.

Hyundai Ioniq 5 Owners will get two years of free charging. Hyundai

The single-motor rear-drive Ioniq 5 can return up to 303 miles on a charge. It features 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The dual-motor all-wheel drive version can travel 256 miles per charge, but it delivers much more power and better acceleration. The dual-motor vehicle offers 320 horsepower and 446 pound-feet of torque for a 0-60 mph time of less than five seconds.

The Ioniq 5's EPA ratings come as the EV is being handed to journalists in the United States for the first time. The 303-mile estimate is solid, but it's the car's quick charging abilities that should get everyone excited. Using the proper charging tech, the vehicle can recharge from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 18 minutes. It can also act as a small generator to power computers, power tools, or recharge mobile devices, making it an ideal camping vehicle.

Hyundai hasn't elaborated on price yet, but we know that the automaker is giving away free charging to buyers of the Ioniq 5. The automaker has partnered with Electrify America to provide 250 kWh DC fast charging at over 700 stations nationwide. Owners have unlimited 30-minute charging sessions for two years from the purchase date of their new vehicle. Hyundai Kona Electric owners are also included in the deal, which will become even more valuable over time, as Electrify America will expand with more fast chargers and charging stations soon.
