Was thinking the same thing. Now that the taxi coys have gotten their hands on it, it reduces the attractiveness to private buyers.

Tks! If it's priced at $125k, I doubt if many units would be moved bearing in mind Prius is going at $130k+ and also taxi using it, so don't quite understand their rationale but maybe they want to prove its reliability and resilience since it's the first Hyundai Hybrid?

Hybrid cars take off very fast cos using electric motor but my understanding is you shouldn't floor it cos then the normal motor would take over if it goes over a certain speed. It's also very quiet. I'm no expert just hearing from some hybrid owners.

I was kinda interested in the hybrid car as I saw quite a few running in Korea when I was there for holidays recently. But the price of $125K ... its really close to the Honda 1.5T Civic loh...  :wut:

 

The main contributing factor that it can go fast is that it uses a DCT instead of the usual CVT.

For me this is yet another nail in the coffin for diesel cars in Singapore. A huge fleet of Prius and now Hyundai hybrids.

It's called inference and some speculation. It's a sign of things to come.

Not much real savings as the savings on petrol gets eaten up by the higher cost of hybrids in SG. You need to drive a lot like taxis in order to have good savings.
