Hyundai Santa Fe

The new Hyundai Santa Fe has outperformed the competition to claim the SUV class of the transcontinental Global Green Challenge. The transcontinental Global Green Challenge covers 3,147 kilometres from Darwin to Adelaide (Australia). It showcases the latest advances in hybrid, electric, solar, low emission, and alternative energy vehicles. It runs from the 24 – 31 October 2009, where the drivers battled the outback terrain of Tennant Creek, Alice Springs and Coober Pedy.

After 7 days of competition, the new Santa Fe R diesel had consumed a total of just 160.46 litres of diesel fuel and achieved a low 137.67 grams of CO2 per kilometre.
