Hyundai plans to expand its lineup of electrified models to 13 in the next three years. By 2022, Hyundai will offer six sedans and seven crossovers with electric, hybrid, or plug-in hybrid powertrains, the Korean automaker announced.

The rollout will begin with a freshened 2020 Ioniq that will be unveiled at the LA Auto Show later this month and a redesigned Sonata Hybrid that will debut at the Chicago Auto Show in February. The remaining eight will be released gradually over the next three years.

The move will double Hyundai's current lineup of electrified vehicles, which includes electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid versions of the Ioniq; hybrid and plug-in hybrid Sonata midsize sedans; and an electric Kona subcompact SUV. Hyundai also offers the Nexo fuel cell crossover powered by hydrogen gas and an electric motor.

"Hyundai’s commitment to eco-friendly propulsion leads to improved powertrain efficiencies, particulate-matter contributions and an exceptional level of clean air improvements," according to a release.
