Hyundai N Vision 74 : the manufacturer is seriously considering it

  • A limited production of 100 units is planned.

  • The production version should be more powerful than the concept.


 

The Hyundai N Vision 74 concept is without doubt one of the most extraordinary vehicles unveiled in recent years. The sports coupe, inspired by the 1974 Hyundai Pony concept, is truly superb, with its racecar body and obvious performance potential. However, this exercise in engineering know-how was not intended for mass production, despite the public’s enthusiasm.

However, according to a document obtained by Electrek, the Hyundai group is now interested in developing a production model for a lucky few with deep enough pockets to enjoy a hydrogen-powered car.

Because that’s what makes the Hyundai N Vision 74 so special: its propulsion system. Indeed, the supercar envisaged by the Korean giant will be powered by fuel cells. According to the article on the Korean website KED Global, limited series production – a total of 100 units is planned at the time of writing – will begin in 2026.

A first prototype is planned for later this year, as the manufacturer has almost completed its phase of sourcing components from suppliers. The only snag in this story is the estimated price, which could hover around $366,000 (in US dollars), a pretty penny for a car tattooed with the Hyundai crest. On the other hand, this N Vision 74 has absolutely nothing in common with the original Pony, apart from a few exterior lines.

We can also expect a more powerful car than the concept unveiled in 2022. Indeed, a few sources have indicated that the addition of a higher-capacity battery would boost the powertrain’s output to 775 hp. That’s a pretty promising statistic.
