Hyundai Pays Tribute to Original Grandeur Flagship Sedan with Heritage Series EV Resto-mod

The Grandeur was Hyundai’s luxury flagship sedan in the 80s and the automaker has now reimagined it as an EV concept

Hyundai has paid homage to the 1986 Grandeur by electrifying it and equipping it with modern features.

Called the Heritage Series Grandeur, this ‘electrifying retro-futuristic’ resto-mod looks tasteful and reminds people of the car that paved the South Korean’s way into the luxury sedan segment in its domestic market.

Could Hyundai bring Hydrogen back in style?

Hyundai dropped some teasers for a BIG release coming September 7th.

Hydrogen was declared by many to be a lost cause and a waste of time and money. However, Hyundai has apparently been investing a lot of both of those things in the advancement of hydrogen. Coming September 7th, Hyundai will release something pretty significant.

Hyundai's Latest Move Will Change The Brand Forever

Hyundai’s Latest Move Will Change The Brand Forever

Hyundai leaves the present and past in the dust to focus exclusively on the future

With so many automakers starting to focus on electrification, it seems like we’re constantly talking about the future and how the industry will evolve. Just recently, we learned that Porsche is about to reveal a Boxster EV Concept and Mercedes is already embacing electrification hard with the EQ lineup and more recently announcing that the C-Class would carry around a battery and a four-cylinder engine, including in the range-topping AMG C63. It’s not just premium automakers, either, as Toyota is working heavily on its investment in hydrogen technology – like this Hydrogen-powered Corolla race car – and now it looks like Hyundai is killing any and all R&D of internal combustion engines, sealing the fate of the company’s future. Here’s what it really means.

2021 Hyundai Ioniq 5

2021 Hyundai Ioniq 5

Hyundai is debuting its first vehicle under the ‘Ioniq’ electric sub-brand, and from the looks of it, it will be one hell of a package

Hyundai initially launched the Ioniq as a hybrid car, then as an electric one, and finally as a plug-in hybrid. But, in 2020, the company decided to relaunch it as its sub-brand that will consist of all-electric models only. Fast forward to the present day and we already have a glimpse of its first vehicle, the Ioniq 5 mid-size crossover. Hyundai released three teaser images of the Ioniq, a month before it makes its full-fledged debut.

Hyundai Kona Electric Sets New EV Range Record With 630+ Miles Per Charge

Hyundai Kona Electric Sets New EV Range Record With 630+ Miles Per Charge

Hyundai says the Kona Electric will do more than 630 miles per charge, but there’s a catch

The Hyundai Kona Electric is capable of running for more than 630 miles on a single charge. This is the result of a trial that Hyundai conducted at the Lausitzring track in Germany. The test included three Kona Electric crossovers that traveled 633, 636, and 637 miles without having their batteries recharged. The result exceeded Hyundai’s goal of running the cars for 1,000 km (620 miles).

Hyundai's Push To Roll out the Ioniq Sub-Brand is a Sign of Automotive Resiliency

Hyundai’s Push To Roll out the Ioniq Sub-Brand is a Sign of Automotive Resiliency

The Ioniq sub-brand will initially feature three all-electric models, all due in the next few years

As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, Hyundai is making good on its goal to keep pushing forward with its pre-COVID-19 plans. One of those plans involves the creation of a new sub-brand that will become the official home of the automaker’s all-electric vehicles. The sub-brand, called Ioniq, will serve as a complement to Hyundai’s other sub-brand, Genesis, and offer battery electric vehicles. Three new all-electric models will serve as the foundation of the new sub-brand. A mid-size crossover EV will arrive first in 2021, followed by a sedan model in 2022 and a large SUV in the early part of 2024. All of this is part of Hyundai’s long game for battery-electric vehicles, which primarily involves selling 560,000 EV models by 2025. If for nothing else, Hyundai’s best-laid plans before the coronavirus pandemic brought the world to its knees is still moving along, proving that resiliency is as much a part of Hyundai’s DNA as anything we’ve seen from the automaker in the past.

The Prophecy and 45 Concepts Will Spearhead Hyundai's Electric Future

The Prophecy and 45 Concepts Will Spearhead Hyundai’s Electric Future

The South Korean carmaker has come a long way and it’s not stopping now

Take a step back and look at were was Hyundai 10 or 15 years ago. Since those times, the Koreans have made quite a leap to the level they maintain today. Hyundais are definitely not what they used to be and the future is looking even brighter.

We have good reason to make that statement. Hyundai decided to put the Prophecy and 45 prototypes into production and they’ll both be powered by the brand’s new all-electric architecture.

Hyundai Gas Chambered an Olympic Athlete to Prove Hydrogen Cars are Better for the Environment

Hyundai Gas Chambered an Olympic Athlete to Prove Hydrogen Cars are Better for the Environment

For the love of all that is holy, don’t take this as a challenge

Yes, what you’re seeing is a person, on a treadmill, breathing car exhaust as they do their usual training routine. That person is Hyundai Spain’s brand ambassador and an Olympic athlete, and that vehicle is a Hyundai Nexo – a purely hydrogen-powered vehicle that Hyundai says emits absolutely zero emissions. Of course, that’s not exactly true as hydrogen-powered vehicles emit water vapor, but we’ll leave that argument for another time.

The reason this actually works is because as the vehicle breaks down the hydrogen, it creates water vapor. The Nexo, however, also purifies the air it emits, which means that person in the gas bubble is most likely breathing cleaner air than you right now. Weird, huh? As weird as it seems, I should probably point out that you shouldn’t try this at home. Doing this with a normal vehicle will result in a permanent loss of life that you don’t want. And, you probably shouldn’t try it with your own NEXO either, if you happen to own one. The whole point is to prove that the Nexo – and hydrogen-powered vehicles as a whole – are safe for the environment… and people… obviously people.

Oddly enough, hydrogen-fueled vehicles have yet to take off, even in the limited capacity that electric cars have. Where electric cars have long recharge times, a hydrogen vehicle can be refilled in nearly the same amount of time it takes to fill a take of gasoline or diesel. But, there are two downsides, the first being that hydrogen fuel cells don’t tend to work in cold temperatures, and the other being that there is a serious lack of hydrogen fueling stations. For what it’s worth, Hyundai does say that the Nexo can operate in temperatures as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit. For now, enjoy the video, and, as I said before, don’t take this is as some stupid challenge. If you try it and kick the bucket, we’ll be forced to say you fell victim to natural selection.

2020 Hyundai Kona PHEV

2020 Hyundai Kona PHEV

Supremely Efficient Subcompact Hyundai Crossover That Will Look Better Than Its Competition

Just after we saw spy photographs of the Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV, the internet world provided us with photographs of the new Kona PHEV. The small Hyundai city crossover is already available in its gasoline, diesel, and electric guise. The upcoming PHEV will, most certainly, circle out the offering of the highly successful crossover. Caught on film (well, on an SD card really), somewhere in Germany, the new Hyundai Kona PHEV may even prepare us for the upcoming facelifted version of the same car. Before all of that, we have to get adjusted to the fact that small, classy, and fashion conscious crossovers are selling as hybrids like hotcakes. Just note the Toyota CH-R hybrid. We actually do know that the photographed Kona is a hybrid thanks to an eye witness of the photographer who said that it was filled up at a petrol station, but it drove off completely silent probably on electric power alone. Well, in that case, that makes this an “ear witness”, but what the hell!?

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric

The world’s first all-electric compact crossover!

Although Hyundai didn’t offer an SUV until the Terracan was introduced in 2001 (the 1991 Galloper doesn’t really count since it was a rebadged Mitsubishi), the Korean firm now has four different crossovers on offer. The latest to join the family is the Kona, and it’s the company’s first subcompact offering. But more importantly, it’s the first subcompact SUV to get an all-electric version. Unveiled in February 2018, the Kona Electric is the first of its kind on the European market and crosses the pond to the U.S. for 2019.

Much like any other EV or hybrid based on a conventional vehicle, the Kona Electric is very similar to the gasoline-powered Kona. The styling carries over with a few changes inside and out, while the equipment lines remain pretty much the same. It’s the drivetrain that makes a big difference, as the Kona Electric doesn’t use dinosaur juice. What’s more, the Kona Electric comes with impressive performance and range of a crossover that will cost significantly less than the expensive Tesla Model X. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

Update 12/12/2018 We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric take at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto show. Check them out in the gallery below!
