Hyundai Motorsport Goes Electric

Hyundai Motorsport is currently working on their first-ever electric race car at their Alzenau-based headquarters.

With some electrified models within its offering, the manufacturer Hyundai is already one of the important players on the electric side. However, it seems that this is not enough for the group since the Hyundai Motorsport division has just released a first image – which does not say much about the vehicle – of a fully electric race car. On the other hand, to all interested parties, a video posted on Hyundai Motorsport’s Facebook page shows some details of the car.

The car is the first of its kind developed by the performance division from the headquarters of Alzenau, Germany. The car will be presented to the automotive press on September 10 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. We should know more about the details surrounding this new program rich in adrenaline … and electrons!

“A new era is dawning at Hyundai Motorsport. For many months, our team in Alzenau has been working hard on an exciting electric vehicle and soon we will be able to share the fruits of these labours,” Andrea Adamo, Team Director said. “It promises to be a new chapter for our company, a natural extension to our motorsport activities, one that links closely to the current trends and innovations in the wider automotive industry. There’s not much longer to wait; all will be revealed at the IAA in Frankfurt in early September.”

The Korean manufacturer has strengthened its presence in motorsport in recent years with its involvement in rally and circuit racing in addition to this division dedicated to customers with cars like the i20 R5, the i30 N TCR and, closer from home, the Veloster N TCR. But given the electric shift that also takes place in motorsports, this new offensive on the part of Hyundai is not surprising.

See you next month for this electrifying unveiling.
