So I got the new 2022 Tucson PHEV about 2 weeks ago and noticed that when I was in EV mode the engine would switch on and didn't know why. after some research both on reddit and on the Hyundai website in fine print it says that that even in EV mode the engine may engage when 1) you accelerate the car and need more power 2) the battery is low and 3) when engaging the climate controls to heat the cabin. So today I turned off all climate control and because it's chilly in vancouver only turned on the heated steering wheel and seat. drove about 12 KMs return trip and EV was engaged all the way but the gas tank indicator still dropped. anyone else notice this? makes me think EV mode is never really pure EV but still dips into the fuel tank
