In September 2019, Hyundai Motorsport unveiled the newest addition to its race car range and its first-ever electric race car: the Veloster N ETCR.
Based on the road-going Veloster N model, the car is designed specifically for the new ETCR category set to debut in 2020.
The Veloster N ETCR is a fully-electric, rear-wheel-drive with a mid-mounted motor in line with ETCR regulations.
The car capitalises on Hyundai Motorsport’s expertise in touring car racing, and is built alongside the i20 R5, the i30 N TCR and the Veloster N TCR at the team’s headquarters in Alzenau, Germany.
Its touring car siblings, the i30 N TCR and Veloster N TCR, are proving to be front runners in championships around the world.
The design phase of the Veloster N ETCR began in November 2018, with the first test completed in August 2019. The car heralds an exciting new era for the Hyundai Motorsport as electric racing becomes one of the pillars of the company.
Since TCR technical regulations were first introduced in 2015, the category has spread throughout the circuit-racing world. It has also become an important focus for Hyundai Motorsport’s Customer Racing activities.
Having been adopted by dozens of regional and national championships in its infant years, TCR cars have become a firm fixture in international racing.
The first all-electric TCR series, ETCR, was announced in March 2018 with its inaugural season due to commence in 2020.
