Ülemaailmne nõudlus soodsa elektriauto Kona Electricule on olnud muljetavaldav tänu sõiduki võimsale elektrimootorile ja ülipikale sõiduulatusele. Ostjate huvi on oluliselt ületanud isegi julgeimad prognoosid.  Euroopas on müüdud kokku peaaegu 120 000 mudelit.

„Hyundai pakub oma klientidele laias valikus jõuallikaid erinevateks vajadusteks. Kona Hybrid ühendab linnamaasturi ja ökoauto, mis pakub Euroopa klientidele taas uut ja huvitavat võimalust,“ ütles Hyundai Motor Europe’i toote- ja turundusjuht Andreas-Christoph Hofmann.

Uue Kona Hybridi jõuallikas on juba tuttav IONIQ Hybridilt: neljasilindriline 1,6-liitrine otsesissepritsega Kappa GDI koos elektrimootori ja topeltsiduriga automaatkäigukastiga.  Selle uue mootori maksimaalne kombineeritud võimsus on 141 hj ja pöördemoment 265 N*m. Säästliku sisepõlemismootori võimsus on 105 hj ja pöördemoment 147 N*m. Sõiduki püsimagnetitega elektrimootori võimsus on 43,5 hj (32 kW) ja maksimaalne pöördemoment 170 N*m. Kompaktne liitiumioon-polümeeraku on tänu neljakihilisele struktuurile nii võimas kui ka ohutu. Selle mahtuvus on 1,56 kWh. Suurepärased laadimis- ja tühjenemiskarakteristikud suurendavad kõrgepingeaku väljundit ja energia regenereerimist.

Hyundai’s compact Tucson SUV wins renowed ‘Bild am Sonntag’ reader test Hyundai Tucson beats 16 international rivals Tester families praise model for its feeling of space, variability, driving safety and mobile phone integration

Families love the Hyundai Tucson: readers of Germany’s ‘Bild am Sonntag’ have voted the compact SUV the ‘most family-friendly import car 2019’. This is the second time Germany’s most-read Sunday newspaper has awarded the model the award for family friendliness. This year, the Hyundai Tucson prevailed against 16 international competitors.

In its search for the ‘most family-friendly import car 2019’, the editorial team of the Bild Group’s automotive resort proposes 17 vehicles, from which the readers of Bild am Sonntag select five candidates for the final round. These finalists will then be available to five families of readers at the DEKRA Test Center at the Lausitzring for extensive test drives. There were two adults in the families and from one to three children; the youngest tester was only seven months old.

The reader testers assess the vehicles in the categories everyday use, quality, comfort, price/performance ratio and driving pleasure. Hyundai Tucson scored 901 points, Skoda Scala 882 points, Mazda CX-5 826 points, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 752 points and Dacia Duster 601 points.

Tom Drechsler, editor-in-chief of the Bild Group’s automotive resort: "The Hyundai Tucson has convinced ‘Bild am Sonntag’ readers of its space-saving, variability, driving safety and mobile phone integration features. Among the finalists, the Tucson was also the only one to offer a five-year warranty (in Baltic countries and in Finland seven years with unlimited mileage). In the end, the test families selected the SUV from South Korea as the most family-friendly import car of 2019. Congratulations!"

Hyundai Motorsport N take double podium from Nürburgring 24 Hours

Mon, Jun 24, 2019 10:17 CET

Hyundai Motorsport N take a double podium in the TCR class of the 2019 Nürburgring 24 Hours with a pair of Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing built machines In qualifying for the famous event Peter Terting smashed the lap record for endurance TCR cars to claim pole position in the class Though incidents on track put class victory out of range both cars showed very impressive pace, and fuel economy throughout the 24 Hours itself.

Hyundai Motorsport N endured a rollercoaster weekend at the Nürburgring 24 Hours, finishing with a double podium in the TCR class. The team’s i30 N TCR and Veloster N TCR showed great pace throughout the event at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, but both ultimately had their results limited by incidents on track during the 24 hours itself.
Through the practice and qualifying the two Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing-built machines were the benchmark for the TCR class. Peter Terting qualified the i30 N TCR he shared with Andreas Gülden, Manuel Lauck and Hari Proczyk on pole, his lap of 8:55.163 smashing the previous lap record from endurance TCR cars around the 25km circuit by three seconds. Marc Basseng, meanwhile, qualified the Veloster N TCR a fraction slower, with the drivers line astern on the grid. Lauck, Moritz Oestreich and Nico Verdonck were primed to follow Basseng into the fray behind the wheel. 
They held the positions in class through the first stint of the race, the performance of the cars allowing them to begin to build a lead over the other teams in similar cars. However, soon after the first moment of misfortune struck the Veloster N TCR crew. A minor electrical problem cost 15 minutes in the pits, leaving them temporarily adrift at the foot of the TCR standings.
The i30 N TCR built its lead at the front of the category until the end of the fifth hour of racing. Then, contact with GT class entry resulted in heavy contact with the barriers. Once the car was recovered to the paddock the team immediately began extensive repairs to get back into the race. The work was completed shortly before the halfway point.
At the same time the Veloster N TCR team completed their own astonishing comeback, rising into the class lead only minutes before the 12 hour mark, before beginning to build a margin of their own, eventually gaining two laps’ advantage over the course of six hours as they rose into the top-40 positions overall. There, ill-fortune was to strike again in the form of a technical issue that left the driver stranded on track. Though he tried to bring the car back into the pitlane he ultimately had to resort to being towed off the circuit, losing further time before the team could begin the necessary work.
The time lost dropped them from the lead to third among the TCR runners, four laps off the leader. Over the remaining five hours of the race the four drivers relentlessly pushed the car. By the chequered flag they had climbed to second place – and 48th overall – as well as cutting the gap to the class leader to a single lap.
Much delayed by the repairs to the accident damage the i30 N TCR made it to the finish third in class, and provisionally 103rd overall. The Hyundai Motorsport N team could, though, lay claim to the fastest TCR laps of the race – the i30 N TCR’s 9:05.873 slightly better than the Veloster N TCR crew’s effort of 9:06.016. The times, together with impressive fuel economy that allowed them to stop less often than their rivals, showed the potential that both had to dominate the class with better fortune. Bringing both cars home at the end of the 24 hours was a tribute to reliability of the Hyundai package, and the work of the team.
The celebrations of second consecutive class podium at the famously difficult Nürburgring 24 Hours completed the weekend for the Hyundai teams, a welcome reward to a weekend celebrating the ‘homecoming’ of N to the circuit where Hyundai range of high-performance road cars was honed.

Hyundai Motorsport reveals Rally Finland line-up

  • Cision
Tue, Jun 25, 2019 15:32 CET

Hyundai Motorsport has announced that Irish racer Craig Breen will join its team for the forthcoming Rally Finland, round nine of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) Breen, who scored his first WRC podium in Finland 2016, will support the team’s manufacturers’ championship efforts in the rally alongside co-driver Paul Nagle Thierry Neuville and Andreas Mikkelsen will complete the team’s line-up of Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC cars for the event, which takes place August 1-4.

Hyundai Motorsport has revealed its line-up for Rally Finland, round nine of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), will be Thierry Neuville/Nicolas Gilsoul, Andreas Mikkelsen/Anders Jæger-Amland and Craig Breen/Paul Nagle.
The team has put collective experience at the heart of its crew choice for one of the fastest and most challenging rounds on the WRC calendar, opting to bring in Irishman Craig Breen to partner Neuville and Mikkelsen.
Breen will be a new addition to the Hyundai Motorsport squad, in a one-off rally to bolster the team’s championship efforts. A 1-3 result in Sardinia helped increase its advantage in the manufacturers’ table to 44 points with six rounds remaining.
Running the number #42 Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC in Finland, Breen will have sufficient opportunities to get up to speed ahead of the WRC event. A seat fitting to be held at the team’s Alzenau facility today (June 25) will be followed by a pre-event test (PET), as well as participation in Rally Estonia (July 12-14). Mikkelsen will also join that event as representative preparation for the fast Finnish stages.
The high-speed nature of the Finnish roads demands a specific driving style with no room for error and with split seconds making a major difference on the classification. Breen took his first WRC podium in Finland in 2016, and has competed there each year since 2009, with the sole exception of 2013.  
Team Director Andrea Adamo said: “Rally Finland is a very particular type of event that warrants an approach like no other on the calendar. It’s a huge challenge for teams and crews alike. With the championship battle entering a critical phase, and competition being so close among the manufacturers, we have brought Craig Breen into our line-up for Finland. He has demonstrated his class at this event in the past and has a lot of experience, which will be invaluable to us. We are making sure he has enough preparation with Rally Estonia, an event similar in style to Finland, and the pre-event test.”
Craig Breen said:  “I am chuffed to be given this chance to join Hyundai Motorsport for Rally Finland, and to get back in a world rally car. It’s been a long and patient wait, having to watch everyone else drive this year. I am honoured to have this one-off opportunity with Paul as my co-driver. Finland is the rally I’ve done most in the WRC so I hope I can bring something to the team. It will remain a challenge but one I am ready to grasp with both hands. I’ll be competing with the #42, a number I’ve raced with since my first year in karting in 1998, and that has always been very lucky. Let’s hope it remains that way!”

Hyundai Motorsport confirms entries for Nürburgring 24 Hours events

Thu, May 09, 2019 10:12 CET

Hyundai Motorsport will run a two-car entry for both the six-hour Nürburgring 24 Hours Qualifying Race and June’s Nürburgring 24 Hours The Hyundai Motorsport N team will challenge for victory in the competitive TCR class with one Hyundai i30 N TCR and one Hyundai Veloster N TCR Three drivers will share each of the cars for the Qualifying Race weekend, with both crews to increase to quartets for the 24 Hours weekend The i30 Fastback N will also compete in the VT2 class of both events with a crew of four drivers to demonstrate its racetrack capability

Hyundai Motorsport will continue the 2019 campaign on the Nürburgring Nordschleife with a two-car entry in the Nürburgring 24 Hours Qualifying Race (May 18-19). The six-hour event will form the final chapter in preparations for June’s Nürburgring 24 Hours. Meanwhile, Hyundai Motor will also enter the i30 Fastback N in the VT2 class of both events to demonstrate its racetrack capability.

For the Qualifying Race weekend the Hyundai Motorsport N team will enter the two TCR-specification packages – the Hyundai i30 N TCR and Veloster N TCR – built by the company’s Customer Racing department in Alzenau, Germany. Both cars have already had success on the Nordschleife this year in VLN competition, finishing second and third respectively in class at the season opening race. Last year, also, Hyundai left the Nürburgring with a good result, with i30 N TCR taking top three results on three occasions during 2018 – including a double podium in the Qualifying Race.

Both chassis will carry the standard endurance pack that is available to customers. The proven two-litre turbocharged engine and six-speed sequential gearbox remain, but an ABS system is fitted, and the cars equipped with a fast refueling kit to enable mechanics to fill the tank in the pitlane. In the 24 Hour Race additional lights will be fitted for the night running.

For the six-hour event – the longest Hyundai Motorsport has attended this season – a very strong line-up has been assembled, with each car to be shared by three drivers. In the i30 N TCR Nürburgring specialist Andreas Gülden will rejoin the team, having been part of the line-up that finished second a year ago. He will join two other members of that squad – Manuel Lauck and Peter Terting – in the search for class victory on the famous track.
