Hyundai has released new teasers of the Saga EV, this time showing its profile closer to reality, along with its top view. The new concept model will debut at the 2018 Sao Paulo Auto Show on 8 November.
Hyundai hasn’t revealed information about the Saga EV concept along with the release of new teasers. It had announced earlier though, that the new concept was developed by Hyundai Design North America (California, USA), in partnership with the Product Planning division of the Brazilian subsidiary.
The teaser above shows a rising beltline that is aggressively upswept from near the middle of the rear-door and a floating roofline, both together creating a sporty silhouette. Also visible, are flared fenders, minuscule mirrors that probably just house rear-view cameras and swept-back headlamps. The teaser below shows the roof with X-shaped graphics connecting points on the roof rails.
The Hyundai Saga EV likely also previews the next-gen Hyundai HB20X, the rugged variant of the next-gen Hyundai HB20 that is undergoing development in South Korea, spy shots have revealed. It will compete with the Chevrolet Onix Activ and the Fiat Argo’s adventure variant.
Hyundai will again likely reserve the next-gen HB20 and next-gen HB20X to Latin America. Their launch could take place in the first half of 2019. For Europe, Asia and Africa, the South Korean automaker will introduce an all-new i20 and all-new i20 Active in 2020.
