^ @NewtoTucson, if you have your heart set on a new Tucson, and you wish to pre-order, then I would recommend the PHEV.Hello,
Asides from availability, what do you recommend to pre-order, HEV or PHEV?
I live in colder part of Canada (Edmonton).
Note: As you live in the colder part of Canada, you will be no doubt be disappointed with the cabin heater performance of the Tucson HEV or PHEV in winter, not to mention the resultant fuel economy. If wintertime cabin heat performance together with fuel economy are important to you, I would recommend you consider the Toyota RAV4 HEV/PHEV or the Ford Escape HEV/PHEV. These vehicles provide near instant cabin heat and the impact on fuel economy is kinder as compared to the Tucson HEV/PHEV.
