Hyundai has sent waves of excitement through the automotive community with its N Vision 74 Concept, a stunning design that enthusiasts are eagerly hoping to see on the production line. While the brand has denied plans for a new Pony Coupe, recent patent documents uncovered by The Drive suggest that Hyundai is indeed working on a project related to the N Vision 74 concept.
One of the patents reveals a two-door chassis featuring a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic tub and a spacious tunnel. Interestingly, the patent mentions that the tunnel may house electrical components, hinting at the possibility of battery integration. This discovery aligns with the growing trend towards electric powertrains in the automotive industry.
The second patent focuses on the front structure of the same car, showcasing a wishbone suspension setup and robust bracing. These features indicate the potential for a high-performance sports car, reminiscent of the N Vision 74 concept.
The N Vision 74 Concept draws inspiration from the iconic 1974 Pony Coupe, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. Apart from its visually striking appearance, the concept boasts an extraordinary powertrain that, if realized in production, would set it apart from other cars on the market.
Underneath its sleek exterior, the N Vision 74 Concept houses a 62.4 kWh battery pack capable of 800-volt fast charging. Additionally, it utilizes a hydrogen fuel cell to recharge the battery and incorporates independent motors at the rear axle, delivering an impressive 670 hp and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque.
While these patents do not guarantee the launch of a production version, they indicate that Hyundai hasn't abandoned the idea of an electric two-door sports car. Enthusiasts and car lovers eagerly await any further updates regarding Hyundai's plans for the N Vision 74 Concept.
