What is N?
Introducing Hyundai's new high-performance series: N. It's the first letter of Namyang – the location of our global R&D facility, where the models are created. And it's also the first letter of Nürburgring, the epic track where they're further tested and developed. The goal of N: to send a race-inspired thrill surging through you the moment you grab the wheel.
The Veloster N is another example of Hyundai Motor's capabilities, creating an exciting sports car with thrilling dynamics.
Albert Biermann
Head of Research & Development
Trial by high-performance fire.
See how we forged the N series by pushing it to its performance limits. We tested the Veloster N on the serpentine track of the Hyundai Proving Ground. And we tested its European counterpart-the i30 N-against the world's best in the Touring Car Racing (TCR) and World Rally Championship (WRC) series. Our inaugural season in TCR was thoroughly dominant: from placing 1st and 2nd in the team's first race to winning the TCR Team championship and TCR Manufacturer's title in the Pirelli World Challenge.
