Hyundai Could Unveil the Production Version of the N Vision 74 Concept Later This Month

The Hyundai N Vision 74 concept could get a production version later this month.

  • This concept is a modernized version of the Pony Coupe from the 1970s.

  • Reports show the automaker intends to offer this model in the coming years.

  • Questions remain about the production model’s powertrain.

Rumours from Korea indicate that Hyundai might have decided to offer a production version of the N Vision 74 concept as part of its N lineup of performance cars.

According to sources cited by the Korean website Money Today, the automaker might even unveil this production version no later than the end of the month, during an event to be held on May 27.

The N Vision 74 concept was shown to the public for the first time in July last year and takes its inspiration from the Pony Coupe concept from 1974.

While the exterior of the new concept is full of retro touches, its powertrain is very modern, combining electricity and hydrogen.

Feeding two motors installed on the rear axle, this combination results in an output of 671 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, reportedly enough to power the N Vision 74 up to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4 seconds.

Due to the 62,4-kWh battery and a 4,2-kilogram reserve of hydrogen, Hyundai says the concept can drive 600 kilometres without needing to stop.

Since hydrogen is still not very popular as a source of energy for passenger vehicles, it is unlikely that the production model will feature the same powertrain setup as the concept.

This means that Hyundai could choose to make it gasoline-powered and use the twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 found in models such as the Genesis G90, or it could choose to make it a full EV.

This last route might be the more likely one since the N division is preparing to launch its first electric model, the IONIQ 5 N, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

If the reports are accurate, more details should be known soon about this upcoming model, which will probably be the first vehicle to be offered exclusively by Hyundai’s N division.
