The new race car by Hyundai was revealed on media day at the Frankfurt Motorshow.
It will be officially launched in 2020. Veloster N ETCR marks the start of the electrification of racing vehicles inside the company.
Thomas Schemera, the Head of Product Division and Executive Vice President of Hyundai Motor Group, stated during the event:
“We are proud to reveal the Hyundai Veloster N ETCR, our first electric race car, designed specifically for ETCR regulations. We have been anticipating this moment for some time, and we are thrilled to open this exciting new chapter for our company. Through our successful Customer Racing division, we have spent many years honing our skills in touring car racing, which has resulted in two packages capable of competing for championships around the world.(…)
ETCR is the natural next step in our journey and one that aligns perfectly to Hyundai’s global strategy for electric vehicle production. We have a detailed test program for the Veloster N ETCR, supported by the fully trained and experienced team of engineers at Hyundai Motorsport. We can’t wait to see the car in action for the first time. The Veloster N ETCR will make an ideal addition to our ongoing commitment to WRC and to Customer Racing through the i20 R5, i30 N TCR and Veloster N TCR.”
Testing programs of Hyundai’s new vehicle will start at the end of September, where the engineers of the company will provide assistance during the whole process.
