Hyundai Veloster N ETCR: That's Why Racing And Power Go As Well Together

The IAA 2019 is under power. Hyundai introduces the first fully electrically powered racing car of the brand and is ready for the special racing class in 2020. Hyundai Veloster N ETCR.

We hear you think: # $%% # & where has the sound gone? Indeed that is the disadvantage of racing on power, it makes no noise. However, there are also advantages. How about the huge torque that is always ready to shoot the car? Or the fact that the drive makes it possible to achieve perfect weight distributions? No, racing on power is quite so crazy yet.

New class

From next year onwards, a new electric racing class is being created: the ETCR. In this, electrically powered touring cars compete with each other. For brands the perfect way to put their new Evs on the map (and test them?). Hyundai now plays a good tune in a lot of racing classes. Both the touring cars and the WRC win the Koreans races. Not surprising that this brand now also shows an ETCR-racer.

Hyundai Veloster N ETCR

The new Hyundai racing car is based on the i30 N TCR and the Veloster N TCR, which has been successfully reacting as a while. Where the current racing cars are equipped with gasoline engines and front-wheel drive, the N ETCR is given a single electric motor that is placed in the middle of the bolide and only drives the rear wheels. The rear wheel drive ensures a good grip and prevents annoying drive influences on the steering that takes place at front wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is not allowed in the new racing class.

Hyundai Veloster N ETCR goes from 0-100 km/h within 3 seconds

The work on the Veloster N ETCR began in November 2018. In August of this year the first Test version could be felt at the tooth. The car will now be subjected to extensive tests on the circuit. Hyundai does not release anything in terms of performance and power, but it is expected that the engine will deliver about 650-700 hp (!). In this way the Veloster N ETCR will sprint in around three counts to 100 km/h. The sprint from 0 to 200 km/h costs less than 10 seconds.

ETCR

From next year there will be a new class. There, Hyundai fights with (Seat) Cupra. Hopefully that will take place on real circuits and not on the artificial jobs of the formula E-Championship. Sailant detail: All cars in the championship will be charged with a Hyundai mobile hydrogen charging station. Then only that sound remains one more thing.
