Maybe it was a typo initially but July '22 is the release date for the PHEV

Arriving July 2022, the all-new Sportage Plug-in Hybrid offers the freedom to use both gas fuel and all-electric power. With impressive fuel efficiency, a premium interior, and ample cargo space, the Sportage Plug-in Hybrid is ready to take on the road ahead.

Although I doubt it given the platform is the same, I hope this maintains better efficiency profile at high speeds than the Tucson HEV and PHEV have in testing.

I was hoping for at least 40mpg on the Sportage PHEV. That doesn't seem realistic.

I would buy it in a heartbeat if it did 30+mpg (US) at 75mph. Tucson appears to be coming in much lower than that so I am not holding my breath.
Driving a Volt has made me keep my speed down. I pretty much never go over the speed limit anymore. 1) Kills my EV range (or mpg) and 2) Just dangerous and not worth the minimal gain in time. Getting older I guess.

Speed limit here is 75. I'd be going much slower than general traffic if I didn't hit that speed.
