Hyundai confirm ETCR programme with Veloster N TCR model

Hyundai has confirmed an ETCR programme with the recently announced Veloster N TCR model.

“We are fully supporting ETCR. We will build the car soon. We will try to support the promotion activities next year,” said Albert Biermann, head of the Hyundai N brand, to

Hyundai becomes the second manufacturer after Cupra to commit to ETCR, a championship that is set for launch in 2020.

The ETCR programme would be for Hyundai to promote their electric road car offer, currently not including the N performance models.

“When we go into ETCR, we want to promote the competence of our EVs. To demonstrate this on the track, that’s also a good thing to do,” said Biermann.

“Sooner or later we will have Hyundai N cars with electrification. But you can make sure Hyundai N will also make sure when the combustion engine has to be restricted more and more, the fun-to-drive Hyundai N will not die.”
