Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

Worth the investment

The whole family loves this car. From the heated/cooled seats to the roomie interior. My only complaint is it does not have a spare tire. So I bought a jack and full-size spare for long road trips.

Great car with great steering and a lot of powe

This car is great and has a super long warranty. It has a decent amount of power and great rack and pinion steering, or whatever it’s called. Nice looking and very comfy

I love this car!

This car was exactly what I was looking for. I had previously owned a van and travelled over 100 miles/day for work and daycare. I needed something with great gas mileage that didn’t require that I plug in to get more available time on the road in one jaunt. And it needed to comfortably seat 4 people. Two child seats fit easily into the back seat. My very tall fiancé can comfortably ride in the passenger seat. I need lumbar support and the one in the Sonata is perfect. I am hot natured, so I appreciated the cooled seat option and am a bit directionally challenged so I also appreciate the navigation system. Especially with the live traffic updates. The leather seats have held up well and I’ve never had any kind of mechanical malfunction. The gas mileage isn’t quite what I’d hoped, but that is likely because I am a bit of an aggressive driver and typically choose highways over city streets. Considering that, I am happy to get an average of about 32-35 mpg. Filling up once, I can get between 500 and 600 miles out of a tank of gas. The smart cruise control is a nice little feature. No more cancelling and then resetting my cruise as it senses when I’m coming up on another car and slows itself down to avoid tailgating or wrecking.
