Hyundai’s John Krafcik Hyundai Sonata hybrid

2011 Hyundai Sonata and hybrid for sale and review

Lou Ann Hammond, the CEO,, talked to John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America.

Krafcik explains the re-designed 2011 Sonata and the new Sonata SE that is sooo sporty.

Krafcik talks about Hyundai going away from the pack – moving away from 6-cylinders to 4-cylinder turbocharged and 4-cylinder gasoline direct injection vehicles. Krafcik also talks about a 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline direct injection vehicle that will be coming out.

Most companies don’t think about Hyundai as a member of the midsize luxury vehicle group. Krafcik knows this and knows why.
