    Here is a project for the new guy, ask for a version of the Niro hybrid powertrain put in a Tucson, add a bit more power, a bit bigger battery so you get a full size SUV, sub 100g/km CO2. Everyone wants SUV's. Everyone wants (needs) low CO2. Add in Hyundai value and watch them fly out the door!
