They’re supposed to be jokes, but we think a couple are actually damn good.
Who’s ready for a Hyundai Palisade N edition? Or a hydrogen-powered Nexo N SUV, or a Prophecy N EV in baby blue paint with a little sporty red flair? We do! The Ns look pretty awesome, and are of course, the latest April Fool’s Day jest from our friends at Hyundai. And you thought the holiday was canceled this year? Wrong.
The Korean brand said on its Instagram feed that it is looking toward the future and it hopes these fake N models will make us smile, and they do. Like other manufacturers, Hyundai has seen its sales fall by 43% in March due to the ongoing COVID-19 disruptions but it still managed to sell 17,089 Palisades so far this year.
Out of the batch, the Prophecy N stunner looks the coolest as a potential future Porsche Taycan fighter. The Prophecy Concept was revealed online last month along with the 2021 Elantra and Elantra Hybrid.
Veloster N fans online seem to be in love with them all, and claim “if you build it… I will buy it!” We know there are Kona and Sonata N variants in the works, so who knows? Maybe Hyundai will listen. And we’ll definitely need another N after our long-term Four Seasons Veloster N goes back this summer.
We just don’t think the world is ready for a Hyundai Venue N just yet.
