Can You Own and Drive the Hyundai N Vision 74? Here’s One Possibility
The Hyundai N Vision 74 Concept car crossed the stage and gave us a look at what Hyundai can make. This impressive new electric sports car will be produced, but in limited numbers with only 70 models heading to public consumers and 30 are reserved for racing use. The rest of the world will need to be happy with a remote-controlled version of this new Hyundai sports car.
Where is the new Hyundai N Vision 74 RC car available?
The RC version of this new and highly sought after sports car is only available in South Korea. Eventually, this car will be sold in other markets, giving the rest of the world a chance to enjoy this cool new car. According to Motor1, the Hyundai Collection website in South Korea allows as many as 100 units of the RC car to be ordered at a time.
The RC version of the Hyundai N Vision 74 is a 1:10 scale car that costs about $372 using current exchange rates. This measures out to:
- 18.1 inches long
- 7.3 inches wide
- 4.9 inches tall
This new RC car uses a pistol-shaped controller, which has become more common with remote controlled cars. This gives owners a hand-sized item with a trigger for throttle and braking and a steering wheel for turning controls.
What makes the real N Vision 74 special?
This new Hyundai performance machine celebrates a previously lost concept car. That car is the 1974 Pony Coupe concept, designed by the legendary car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. The new Vision 74 concept brings retro design elements with a futuristic powertrain to the racing world. Toss in the limited availability of this new Hyundai, and you’ve got a car that hits all the right notes.
Car and Driver tells us the prototype model uses a hydrogen-fuel-cell system and two electric motors. Each motor can produce 335 horsepower, sending that power to a rear wheel. The combination of the entire system reaches as much as 800 horsepower, making this an interesting new Hyundai sports car.
This setup gives N Vison 74 owners versatility when choosing the power source. The 62.4-kWh battery recharges in the same way any regular EV. There’s also an 85-kW fuel cell stack that provides electricity to the two motors during regular city driving or highway cruising.
The battery pack delivers most of the power to handle the high-load, high-demand driving conditions when a driver pushes the new N Vision 74 hard. This combination makes it easy to enjoy the versatility of various fuel sources for this incredible car.
Although most drivers will never see the Hyundai N Vision 74, once the RC car is available in other markets, most consumers could enjoy the fun of this 1:10 version.
