Latest News: High Wycombe, 14th January – Hyundai Motor UK has officially announced the pricing and specification of the i30 Fastback N, which will go on sale in the UK on 21 January. The i30 Fastback N is Hyundai’s second performance model for Europe, engineered by the Company’s dedicated High Performance Vehicle Division. It is the first five-door hot coupe in the C segment and combines the sophisticated and elegant design of the i30 Fastback with the exhilarating performance and fun-to-drive characteristics of the i30 N Hatchback. Priced at £29,995 on the road, the i30 Fastback N is available as a standalone model powered by the 2.0-litre T-GDi engine, which pushes 275PS & 353Nm torque through the electronically controlled limited slip differential. The chassis performance of the Fastback N has been enhanced, with refinements made to the suspension in terms of settings and material changes to further improve dynamic performance whilst also improving ride quality and comfort. As well as the distinctive body shape, the i30 Fastback N features a number of bespoke exterior features which differentiate it from the hatchback, including the N signature triangular lamp used as a fog lamp on the diffuser and a reflective character line on the rear bumper. Interior visual changes for the Fastback N include red stitching to the heated leather and suede seats and the heated leather steering wheel. Red stitching is also used to detail the gear lever, applied to the gear lever gaiter and gear lever itself, which also incorporates a red feature stripe and N logo. Interior detailing is completed with red surrounds to the driver and passenger side air vents. i30 Fastback N also offers an array of performance equipment, including 19” alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tyres that share the “Hyundai N” specific compound with the i30 N Hatchback, Electronical Limited Slip Differential and 345mm ventilated front brake discs with 300mm rear, Electronically Controlled Suspension and manually operated hand brake. Performance orientated equipment continues with the i30 Fastback N’s Torque Vectoring System and steering wheel mounted N drive mode buttons, where the driver can access and customise engine and suspension settings. Carried over from its hatchback sibling, the i30 Fastback N is also equipped with the Active Variable Exhaust System, allowing the vehicle to reveal its playful character when in N or Custom drive mode. Other equipment, shared with the i30 N Hatchback, includes Launch Control, Rev Match Function which eliminates the need for heel and toe gear changes and Brake Control knock back pre-fill to maximise braking response after high g-load cornering. As found elsewhere within the i30 range, the i30 Fastback N features a high level of standard specification including LED head and tail lights, cruise control, keyless entry with engine start/stop button and a standard 8” Touchscreen Satellite Navigation system, that includes Android Auto™ and Apple Car Play™, and the addition of N specific functions such as drive mode display, suspension, engine and transmission set up, lap timer, acceleration timer and performance gauges including engine torque, turbo boost and g force display. The i30 Fastback N’s instrument cluster is shared with the i30 N, using a 4.2” LCD to display a number of drive mode and vehicle control settings, shift timing lights and a variable LED tachometer, with a maximum engine rev light which adjusts according to engine temperature. The cluster also features soft blue lighting and the Hyundai N logo. The i30 Fastback N is available in 6 colours, including the all new Shadow Grey colour, which is specific to the Fastback N. Other colour choices available include the N signature colour Performance Blue, as well as Polar White, Micron Grey, Phantom Black and Engine Red. Ashley Andrew, Managing Director Hyundai Motor UK said, “The i30 N Hatchback surprised many at its launch and has quickly gone on to become an established performer in the hot hatch sector. The i30 Fastback N will cater for those wanting hot hatch performance but with a more distinctive and elegant style.” All i30 N models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, 5 Year Annual Health Check, Roadside Assistance and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.

HYUNDAI WINS MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR AND CAR OF THE YEAR AT NEXT GREEN CAR AWARDS

HYUNDAI WINS MANUFACTURER OF THE YEAR AND CAR OF THE YEAR AT NEXT GREEN CAR AWARDS

High Wycombe, 13 December 2018 – Hyundai Motor UK has won three major titles at the annual Next Green Car Awards, including the flagship Manufacturer of the Year and Car of the Year awards. These most recent wins come hot on the heels of Hyundai being named Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year at the GreenFleet Awards.


It was the revolutionary Kona Electric singled out by Next Green Car Awards judges for special praise, picking up both Car of the Year and Family Car of the Year awards. Its extraordinary value for money and family-friendly practicality elevated it above all other contenders in the eyes of the Next Green Car experts.


The Next Green Car Awards team said: "With its 279-mile range, the Hyundai Kona Electric represents outstanding value for money when compared with rival offerings. As the first to bring a long-distance EV to mass-market customers – and with such a capable package – Hyundai’s Kona Electric is NGC's Car of the Year 2018."  


KONA Electric is the latest electrified model from Hyundai, joining the IONIQ in the line-up – the world’s first car to be available with three separate electric powertrains; hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fully electric.


It was Hyundai’s pioneering work in electrified powertrains, and the broad array of low emissions offerings in the range that led to Next Green Car Awards judges naming Hyundai as their Manufacturer of the Year.


The Next Green Car Awards team said: “While Hyundai's Kona Electric has been making headlines this year, the company's plug-in activities are far more significant than just one model. Now with the IONIQ Electric, IONIQ Plug-In, and Kona Electric, Hyundai is becoming a class-leading electric brand."


Hyundai continues to invest in low and zero emissions powertrains, and is the only manufacturer to offer hybrid, plug-in hybrid, fully electric and Fuel Cell options. The NEXO Fuel Cell Vehicle is due to go on sale early in 2019, capable of travelling 414 zero emissions miles on each fill. NEXO even cleans the air as it drives, cleaning nearly a tonne of fine particulates from London’s air during October’s ‘Clean Driving Month’.


Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK President and CEO, said: “We have a very clear mission to become a world-leader in electrified and fuel cell vehicles, and it gives me great pleasure to see that the big strides we have already achieved are gaining recognition. Our electric offerings, including Kona and IONIQ, represent extremely good value for money, are packed full of the latest technology and come as standard with the peace-of-mind that’s afforded by Hyundai’s five-year unlimited mileage and eight-year or 125,000-mile high voltage battery warranty. The future of both our fuel cell and other electrified powertrains is taking shape as we speak, but I guarantee you there’s much more to come.”


Hyundai Motor Group recently revealed plans to secure a 500,000-units-a–year fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) production capacity by 2030, including passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles, in anticipation of high demand for global FCEVs, expanding to around two million units a year within that timeframe.


Hyundai’s commitment to reducing emissions across its line-up will see a total of 18 new electrified models introduced to the range by 2025, with three new fully electric vehicles by 2022.
