Hyundai may end sales of three-door Veloster

Despite a significant decline in sales of the three-door hatchback Hyundai Veloster, the leadership of the South Korean brand does not plan to stop selling this model. The company is offering some financial incentives to acquire the Hyundai Veloster.

The Hyundai Veloster has always been a rather odd model. The three-and-a-half door hatchback was previously popular with car enthusiasts, although sales have only fallen since 2016, when larger crossovers and SUVs gained popularity. There is mounting evidence that Hyundai may be considering destroying the funky model, according to a report from overseas Cars Direct, which looked at incentives, or lack thereof, to buy a Hyundai Veloster that the automaker is offering on the car.

The publication found that the standard Veloster has no incentive from the automaker as of April 1 – no rebates, no leasing deals.

However, Hyundai is offering the ultimate incentive for dealers to “clean up their existing stock of this model.” Cars Direct found it “nearly impossible” to find the model in stock, finding around 200 Veloster cars for sale nationwide (USA), many of which were in the more powerful version of the Veloster N.

Cars Direct has contacted Hyundai about the future of this model, although it has received a lukewarm response. The company said it has versions of the 2021 Veloster, Veloster Turbo and Veloster N “in dealer stock.” It was also said that the past year was a difficult one for the entire auto industry due to the coronavirus pandemic, although Veloster sales have dropped nearly 50 percent since 2019, dropping from 12,849 to 7,581 units.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a prototype of a “charged” Hyundai Elantra N was seen on tests. Western publications published photos with a prototype of a “charged” sedan Hyundai Elantra N. The novelty received a more aggressive appearance and much more power, compared to regular Elantra.
