    Rumorpile: Questionable Future For The Hyundai Veloster

      Does The Hyundai Veloster Have A Future?

    The Hyundai Veloster is a departure for the Korean automaker. With a unique style and a asymmetrical door layout, the Veloster has been the black sheep when compared to other models. But a new report says the Veloster may not get a second act.

    An unnamed Hyundai executive tells GoAuto.com.au that the company is currently debating whether or not to do a second-generation Veloster.

    “It still has not been decided. There is still debate as to whether it will happen.”

    Last year, the Veloster sold 60,000 units worldwide. Over half of those were delivered to North America where the model experienced a decline.

    The Veloster is expected to get a mid-cycle refresh in the near-future. What comes after that is anyones guess.

    This car while popular on Asian Drama shows really has limited appeal in my opinion. It has large blind spots and is really only a 2 person sports car. If it can be done as a profitable model, then I would for sure keep it as a Halo kind of car for them. It does set them apart from the rest of the makers.

     

    I think every auto maker needs a unique auto in their lineup that people buy in lower quantities. Not every auto can be a mass produced and sold to everyone auto.

    I understand the Elantra coupe is not coming back for the 2015 model year.  Those of us who support any maker with an affordable coupe are outnumbered.

     

    You would have bought it then to extend the support. :P

    I have a coworker that bought a Veloster to replace his older Sonata when it got totaled.  Interesting little car, rode in it a couple times..very limited rear head room, though, with the extreme rear window slope..

    • True, but some larger apartment complexes or parking garages could put in level 2 chargers, maybe even level 1 for places like an airport extended parking.  If people have their car sit 12 hours at their apartment, or 8 hours in a parking garage while at work, there is opportunity there also for charing without having to build out expensive super chargers. And really it is rural America that should be embracing EV's way more because there aren't many gas stations when you get into farm country, you might have to drive 30-40 minutes to find a gas station in some parts of rural America, but they have houses with electricity and can easily charge.  
    • Meh, just another forgettable appliance...styling very similar to the Polstar something something...
    • The caveat is that not everyone can charge at home.   People in apartment buildings or rental houses without exterior plugs can't buy EVs? We need the network to be extensive, so that means Tesla AND Chargepoint AND Electrify America AND Walmart AND IONNA so that everyone can use an EV even if they can't charge at home. And that's also what the big range batteries are for because if you always have to charge publicly, you don't want to have to do it that often.
    • This is good news, they need to get these chargers built because even though most people would charge at home, you still need the charge network big enough so range anxiety isn't a thing.  Because really people have charge anxiety, I think 300 miles is plenty of range and all these EV's do that, Ford's research I think said people drive more than 150 miles in a day only days per year.  So no sense buying cars with huge batteries that are super expensive, if the chargers are there and you can easily recharge if out away from home.
    • Remember, the EU is a much different landscape for EVs.  The HVAC heat pumps are likely only relevant in the Nordic countries. I also don't think that 2 minutes faster to charge will be a deal breaker for anyone.
