The Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV is one of the latest plug-in hybrid models that soon will enter the U.S. market (initially only in some of the states – CA, CO, CT, ME, MA, MD, NJ, NY, OR, RI, & VT).
According to CarsDirect’s data, derived from a recent ordering guide, the base SEL trim will start at $40,535 with a destination charge. Assuming a destination charge of $1,185, we guess that the MSRP is $39,350.
After deducting the available $6,587 federal tax credit (for 13.8 kWh total battery capacity), the effective price is $33,948.
|Model||Base Price||Dest. Charge||Tax Credit||Effective Price|
|2022 Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV||$39,350||+$1,185||$6,587||$33,948|
Considering that the base hybrid version is $5,700 less expensive ($33,650), after deducting the federal tax credit, it turns out that the PHEV is $887 more affordable.
The base conventional gasoline SEL version starts at $29,000 (MSRP), $30,185 with DST, which means that the PHEV is still $3,763 more expensive, despite the federal tax credit.
For buyers that can benefit from the 30 miles (48 km) of all-electric EPA range, the plug-in hybrid version is probably a very interesting option.
