So far, Hyundai’s N multiplication has constructed high-performance versions of a i30 and Veloster. Now, a sub-brand wants to make a possess standalone vehicle, reports Auto Express.
Thomas Schemera, Hyundai’s clamp trainer of high-performance and motorsport operations, told a opening that a bespoke indication would inject some some-more tension into a brand. “I can tell we Albert Biermann [Hyundai engineering boss] and myself are meddlesome in prohibited things and have some ideas in a tube for a halo model—rest positive we are entrance adult with something,” he said.
It’s misleading what such a halo indication would demeanour like, though Auto Express claims Hyundai is debating between a two-seat sports automobile and a opening sedan like a Kia Stinger. Whatever form it takes, a automobile isn’t approaching to enter prolongation for several some-more years.
Earlier this year, reports flush that Hyundai was operative on a high-performance two-door car. According to a report, a indication would have some kind of electrification. Yang Woong Chul, Hyundai’s conduct of investigate and development, reportedly pronounced a new sports automobile was being worked on by N employees, nonetheless he wouldn’t endorse either it would be a standalone N product or something else.
The i30 N isn’t entrance to a U.S. market, though we will accept a Veloster N and a upgraded 2.0-liter turbo-four creation 275 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Schemera pronounced Hyundai has usually finished “the initial proviso of N vehicles,” so some-more models are on a way.
