Hyundai plans to be the first automaker to offer plug-in electric cars in New Zealand. The Korean automaker will be working with its local distributor in New Zealand to retrofit the subcompact Getz to run on batteries. The complete cars will be shipped to New Zealand as usual where the conventional powertrains will be removed. An electric motor, batteries and electronics will be installed to give the electric Getz a range of about 75 miles on a charge and a 75 mph top speed. A quick charge is expected to give another 50 miles of range. At this point not a lot of technical detail is available on the car nor is pricing. Hyundai is expecting to offer about 200 Getz EVs annually starting in November. Thanks to Paul for the tip!
