Hyundai N Vision 74 Is NOT Entering Production

Rumor / 6 Comments

The striking sports car will reportedly remain a concept - for now, at least.

Last week, a report from Korea suggested the Hyundai N Vision 74 concept would enter production as the Pony Coupe, a striking, retro-inspired sports car. The vehicle was rumored to debut at a Pony Day event on May 27, but a conflicting report from Korea-based WikiTree says otherwise.

Hyundai reportedly told the publication, "There is no plan to mass-produce the Pony Coupe, and there is no Pony Day event planned." If this is to be believed, it will be a real shame. Ever since the N Vision 74 debuted last year, gearheads worldwide have been united in their love for this hydrogen-powered concept.

Earlier this year, Till Wartenberg, Vice President of Hyundai's N Brand Management and Motorsport, expressed his desire for a production version of the N Vision 74.


"My personal wish is to produce this vehicle. It's at first probably an investment, but if we could see this vehicle out there and people buying it, I would be very happy," remarked Wartenberg at the time.

We will have to wait for May 27 to roll around to find out if the N Vision 74 will arrive as a production-ready car, but it seems unlikely - not even Hyundai USA is aware of any plans. Hyundai representatives said, "We're totally in the dark about that," when asked about the concept sports car.

Given the overwhelmingly positive response to the N Vision 74, we wouldn't be surprised if Hyundai does put the vehicle into production, albeit at a later date.


In case you've forgotten, the latest Hyundai EVs - including the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 - started life as concept vehicles. Sister brand Kia is also in the business of putting its concept cars into production, as evidenced by the Kia EV9. Then again, not all of the Hyundai Motor Company's stellar concept vehicles make it to production, especially the most desirable ones.

If this news comes as a disappointment, Hyundai N fans can, at least, look forward to the introduction of the Ioniq 5 N, the automaker's first-ever electric performance car. It's set to be a truly exciting car, thanks to the "N e-shift" system that simulates gear changes, and the artificial noise generator that creates fake "engine" noise.

The Ioniq 5 N could have as much as 600 horsepower on tap and should be a hoot to drive. It could just be a taste of what's to come, an aperitif to the N Vision 74 main course.
