Hyundai’s high-performance division, Hyundai N, has recently expanded its lineup to compete fairly with Gazoo Racing from Toyota in the popular segment.
With the starting point of only 2 picky car models, i30 N and Veloster N, Hyundai N has added up to 4 more name lines from 2020 to now: i20 N, Elantra N, Kona N and Ioniq 5 N.
This week, Hyundai has unexpectedly revealed two product lines for fans of Hyundai high-performance cars to collect, namely the Hyundai Kona N and Elantra N models.
Initial information published by the company said that buyers can “customize” 2 of their cars, temporarily with many different colors.
In the published collection, it is understandable that the i20 N and i30 N are not present, since they do not have global coverage. Similarly, the Ioniq 5 N has not been officially launched (2023), so a model version of the car will be available later.
However, the absence of Veloster N – Hyundai’s high-performance branch opening car will certainly disappoint collectors somewhat, because it is impossible to collect the full set.

Hyundai Veloster and Veloster N have been confirmed dead by the Korean brand to make room for new, younger name lines. Although the driving experience is not bad and the price is also relatively comfortable (more than 33,000 USD starting), Veloster N did not achieve good sales and was not produced by the company much for that reason.
In addition to the above names, the Hyundai N lineup can soon welcome the Hyundai Ioniq 6 N when a concept car (RN22e) was announced in July.
