The 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid passed all the tests when it was driven by hypermiler Wayne Gerdes in a journey of 2269 miles from Pacific Ocean to Atlantic Ocean averaging 59.58 miles per gallon.
Hyundai announced today that the all-new 2011 Sonata Hybrid completed a drive from the edge of the Pacific Ocean to this island off the Atlantic Coast of Georgia, crossing the mountains, deserts and valleys. What is more interesting is that the driver of the car made just one stop for fuel.
Hyundai says that the first tank of fuel helped the 2011 Sonata Hybrid to travel for 1221.2 miles, while the second tank of fuel gave it an extra 1048.1 miles with 2.5 gallons remaining. For those who don’t know, the 2011 Sonata Hybrid was rated by EPA at 40 mpg on the highway for a range of nearly 700 miles.
