While the specifics likely won’t begin to be unveiled for quite some time, there was some very intriguing and exciting information unveiled recently from the Hyundai camp reminiscent of something the brand did recently. Around this time in 2017, Hyundai laid out its plans to introduce eight new or re-engineered crossover utility vehicles by 2020. The new plan? Well, it’s a bit more ambitious, as Hyundai plans to introduce a whopping 13 new hybrid & electrified vehicles by 2022.
