Hyundai has announced that it is working on eight new or redesigned crossover models that will be introduced in the U.S. by 2020. The first of the new crossovers is the Kona, which was unveiled earlier this year.
Hyundai hasn’t revealed all the details, but a new A-segment crossover that’s smaller than the Kona is planned, a large eight-passenger model. The future crossovers will also feature gasoline, diesel, electric and fuel cell powertrains. We already know that the Kona crossover will get a fully electric version next year.
“Very soon we are going to have the most diverse CUV powertrain lineup in the industry,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, product, corporate and digital planning, Hyundai Motor America. “These vehicles will show the engineering prowess of the more than 13,000 engineers Hyundai Motor Company has working on current and future models every single day. Our customers are going to have a lot of great CUV choices in our dealerships.”
The remaining seven crossovers will debut at major auto shows including those in Detroit, New York and Los Angeles.
