Hyundai to commit to E-TCR with new Veloster N TCR

Hyundai is planning to enter the new all-electric E-TCR series with its forthcoming Veloster N TCR car, according to Hyundai N brand chief Albert Biermann.

Biermann confirmed to e-racing365.com that the South Korean brand, which announced that it would also develop a Veloster N TCR car for 2019, is looking at joining CUPRA in entering the inaugural E-TCR series in 2020.

“We are fully supporting ETCR,” said Biermann to e-racing365. “We will build the car soon. We will try to support the promotion activities next year.

“When we go into ETCR, we want to promote the competence of our Evs [electric vehicles].

“Right now we’re launching the EVs that are the most affordable with the biggest electric driving range. To demonstrate this on the track, that’s also a good thing to do.

“Sooner or later we will have Hyundai N cars with electrification.”

No official announcement has been made by Hyundai on the subject yet. The planned participation will utilise the spec WSC powertrain which is designed to be retro-fitted to any eligible TCR chassis.
