The Network has revealed the design of the electric Hyundai Lafesta

The Network has unveiled an electric variant kupeobrazny “chetyrehdverki” Hyundai. The “green” version was bigger petrol. In sale the novelty will arrive before the end of this year.

Sedan Hyundai Lafesta with kupeobrazny silhouette debuted in April of last year. The model is intended for China only, where it is positioned as a youth car. Full sales took off in China in October (by the way, in the range Nissan has a minivan with that name, but in China it is not represented). In principle, not cheap Lafesta (from 119 800 yuan, or 17 $ 400 at the current exchange rate) on the market has shown itself quite well. So, in January-June of the current year implemented 41 954 pieces, allowing the sedan to take third place in the ranking of the most popular models of the brand. Front – crossover ix35 and Elantra sedan, with a score of 69 and 47 565 776 units, respectively. But from the competition Lafesta still lagging behind. For example, even more expensive kupeobrazny sedan Volkswagen Lamando (from 142 900 800 yuan or 20 us dollars) for six months has sold 55 707 copies. However, soon the rescue will come Lafesta gasoline-electric version – photos of this model made in the database of the Ministry of industry of the PRC.

Outwardly from the standard “chetyrehdverki” Hyundai “green” is the front part: instead of the top grille fitted cap, under the emblem of the brand is the connector for charging, plus electric cars have a different bumper with “slots”, which are hidden led daytime running lights. The rear bumper is also changed – from the bottom appeared red line. Even electric Lafesta received discs of special design. Length of the electric vehicle is 4705 mm, which is 45 mm more than the petrol model. The wheelbase is the same – 2700 mm.

Shots of the interior certification authority traditionally does not publish. Most likely, the cabin is the same as the regular sedan, except that added additional decorative inlays.

The new version is equipped with a motor capacity of 184 HP Data about the battery and the power reserve yet. But known maximum speed – 165 km/h. Recall that the standard Hyundai Lafesta is available with petrol “turbochetverkami” 1.4 T-GDI and 1.6 T-GDI. The first engine produces 140 HP, the 1.6 engine with two options of power – 190 or 204 HP, Both combined with seven-speed robotized transmission with two clutches. The maximum speed Lafesta with the base motor 203 km/h, with a 190-horsepower – 218 km/h, with a top 220 km/h.

Plans to bring kupeobrazny sedan outside of China, Hyundai has not yet reported. Meanwhile, falling sales (and the whole Chinese market as a whole) had previously forced the Koreans to reconsider its decision about the “exclusivity” of another model: the budget semancik Reina, who also was once designed only for China, now sell in the Philippines. It is possible that other “exclusives” of the brand, soon everything will be for export.
