Hyundai Motorsport teases electric debut

First-ever electric vehicle set to be revealed at IAA 2019


First-ever electric vehicle set to be revealed at IAA 2019

We are gearing up to unveil our first-ever electric race car at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt next week.

The car, which has been designed and built at our Alzenau headquarters, will make its debut at the annual motor show’s media day on September 10. The IAA’s slogan, ‘Driving Tomorrow’, makes it the perfect platform for us to showcase our latest motorsport program.

Since our inception in 2012, we have become well established in rallying and circuit racing. We expanded our operations with a bespoke Customer Racing division in September 2015, from which we have developed our competitive i20 R5, i30 N TCR and Veloster N TCR cars.

Our move into electric underscores our ambition and credentials, as well as our passion for cutting edge technology, all supported by Hyundai’s high-performance N brand.

Social sneak peek

Following the first glimpse of the newest addition to Hyundai Motorsport, we have released a second sneak peek video of the car on our social media channels. Set in our Customer Racing workshop at night, the film features current WTCR champion Gabriele Tarquini in a starring role.

“After a positive reaction to our new electric project, we are excited to unveil the car at IAA,” said our Team Director Andrea. “It will mark the continuation of our motorsport journey, starting a brand-new chapter, as we embrace new ventures. The future is looking bright, and we look forward to revealing more in Frankfurt next week.”
