Hyundai N Executive Wants To Put The N Vision 74 Into Production

A Hyundai executive tasked with running the company’s N division has expressed interest in putting its stunning N Vision 74 concept into production, according to an interview with The Autopian,

Till Wartenberg, Hyundai’s vice president of N brand management and motorsport, was quick to express his passion for the highly popular, wedge-shaped sports car concept.

“My personal wish is to produce this vehicle,” Wartenberg told The Autopian, “It’s at first probably an investment, but if we could see this vehicle really out there and people buying it, I would be very happy.”

As a refresher, the N Vision 74 was, without a doubt, the most impressive concept car of 2022. Inspired by a vintage coupe concept designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, it has a wedge shape reminiscent of a DeLorean DMC-12, albeit sportier and modernized . It gets its energy from a dual hydrogen fuel cell and battery EV drivetrain, and it makes 670 horsepower.

It’s important to note that Wartenberg used his words carefully. Nowhere did he actually confirm the N Vision 74 for production or give a timeline for when Hyundai might confirm its existence outside the single example built. It’s simply a desire at this stage, not a real plan.

Still, we’re happy to see Hyundai executives in control of decision-making are enthused about cars like the N Vision 74. That makes it all the more likely it will, at some point, be greenlit. We’ll just have to wait and see.
