A top Hyundai executive has hinted that a new ‘halo’ model is soon to top the firm’s range of N performance models.
Thomas Schemera, head of Hyundai’s High Performance Vehicle and Motorsport Division, said in an interview recently that the new car will “sit at the top of our high performance range”.
The all-new division was created in March of this year, and has been designed to “streamline Hyundai’s strategy, product planning, sales and marketing capabilities for high performance vehicle operations”.
Hyundai’s high-performance N line-up currently consists of the i30 N hatchback, and the Veloster N – which isn’t destined for UK markets. An i30 N Fastback model is due to join the pair shortly, after it was revealed at the Paris Motor Show back in October.
The i30 N has been immensely popular in the UK, with its combination of performance, high equipment levels and value-for-money proving a hit with British buyers.
