Is it possible that the Hyundai Veloster ’s run ends after only three years of production? Hyundai has made no indication on an answer to that question, but according to GoAuto, there has been a lot of internal debate on whether the Veloster lives to fight another generation or concludes a short-lived run after the facelifted model arrives in 2015 or 2016.
It’s a surprising development for a car whose sales numbers haven’t exactly caught fire. But the Veloster has developed a unique following among fans of the sports hatch , many of whom have come to love the vehicle and treated it as an outlier model of a company known for its high-volume models.
A Hyundai executive told GoAuto that no decision has been made as of yet and there are still enough influential voices on both sides to warrant more time to debate the Veloster’s fate.
For now, a facelifted model is in the pipeline with Hyundai planning to adapt its current design language on the sports hatchback . If sales pick up on this model, then that could help Hyundai keep the Veloster around. But the fact that discussions are taking place on the sports hatch’s fate is a little disconcerting, especially for those like us who have grown quite fondly of Hyundai’s little pocket rocket.
