Hyundai plans to sell gas-electric hybrid in US

Hyundai Motor Corp. says it will bring a gas-electric hybrid version of its Sonata sedan to the U.S.
Vice President of Product Development John Krafcik said Wednesday that Hyundai will display a hybrid version of the midsize Sonata at the Los Angeles Auto show in November.
The South Korean automaker says it will announce at the show the date that the hybrid will be sold in the U.S.
Krafcik says the hybrid Sonata can be powered by both gas and electric motors and will have new lithium-ion batteries.
He says the company will soon begin selling a hybrid Elantra small car in Korea but it will bring a midsize hybrid to the U.S. market.
Krafcik also says it is unlikely that Hyundai will bring its i10 subcompact to the U.S. from Korea.
