Hyundai started talking about her pickup againDecember 3, 2018
Immediately make a reservation that both of these automotive brands are part of the South Korean giant Hyundai Motor Group.
Since the company Hyundai introduced the concept of Santa Cruz’s own pickup truck, almost four years have passed – the car was shown at the Detroit Auto Show (USA).
When journalists asked the official representatives of the automaker, the latter gave comments about the future of the model very carefully.
As our foreign colleagues report, quite recently, they managed to personally communicate with Luc Donkervolke, who is one of the Hyundai designers, and learn something about the plans of the company’s management to create a pickup truck.
According to Mr. Donkervolke, the conceptual pickup Santa Cruz will definitely have a production version. The design of the new model of the South Korean brand is already fully prepared. Currently, the company’s engineers are working on technical issues – they choose a platform for their first pickup, create a motor range, etc. Unfortunately, the exact data on the date of the appearance of a pickup Hyundai journalists have not received. Luke Donkervolke noted only that this should happen by 2020.
It is unclear what name the new model will receive, perhaps it will remain Santa Cruz. There is no information about who the South Korean novelty will compete with. Mr. Donkervolke noted that a similar version of the Kia pickup will be presented later.
