since it's a 2012 it should still be under warranty , take back to the dealer & make sure they pay for the tow !

first call hyundai roadside assistance. the numbers in you owners manual. but to answer your question it sounds like the vehicles alternator stopped charging,causing all of the above problems as the vehicle lost power. hyundai will pay for the vehicle to be towed to the closest hyundai dealer and the repairs should be covered under warranty unless you have more then 60,000 miles on the vehicle.
