Spied in Death Valley During Hot Weather Testing

 

sonata-hybrid-eng-950-thumb-555x350.jpg The question mark is because here was no distinctive "hybrid" logo on the black-clad car, but a� spy shooter for KGP Photography caught what sure looks like Hyundai's upcoming Sonata Hybrid undergoing hot weather testing in California's Death Valley.

The giveaway is the thick orange cable at the back of the engine bay - the orange plastic casing is an international signal for "hey, there;'s high-voltage wiring under here, don't mess with it."

The fact that the tiny four-cylinder engine occupies only half the engine compartment with a bunch of other stuff clad in black plastic (power electronics? electronic controllers?) is also a pretty good clue that the camera caught a Hyundai hybrid.

And then there's the fact that the Hyundai was being tested (comparison tested?) in the company of  competing mid-sized hybrids from Ford, Nissan and Toyota
.
We borrowed this under-thehood shot from our sibling news blog, Straightline, over at Edmunds InsideLine, and you can head over there to catch an exterior shot and a bit more detail and speculation.
