Are you one of those green drivers who pays obsessive attention to squeezing every mile out of your car? Your hybrid is finally here. The new Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is designed in such a way that if you ease off the gas at nearly any speed, you can switch into EV mode and start saving those precious drops of fuel.
