Hyundai Showcases Pony Past with N Vision 74

A Tribute to the Pony

Hyundai has definitely been in the spotlight the past few years. Last year saw the return of the 1974 Pony Coupe Concept after its restoration, and today the automaker has announced a new heritage exhibition at Hyundai Motorstudio Seoul to commemorate its beginnings.

Hyundai will be showcasing the concept car, the N Vision 74, as well as other historical artifacts at an exhibit called “Pony, the timeless”. This event marks the publication of a book and a magazine series that are dedicated to the iconic Pony model, which was Korea’s first ever independently developed automobile.

The exhibit follows the Pony’s history on multiple levels, with archived documents. If you’re searching for the N Vision 74 and the Pony Coupe concept, they can be found on the third floor. Hyundai CEO Jaehoon Chang expressed his desire that the exhibit would “reminisce about the past and take inspiration for the future.” We are wishing that this includes himself as well.

Hyundai unveiled the N Vision 74 concept last year to much fanfare, with speculation swirling over whether the retro-style model would ever make it to production. Its design is a stunning tribute to the original Pony, updated with some modern technological touches. The company initially stated in mid-May that no plans were in the works to bring it to market. However, just a few days later, Hyundai Chief Creative Officer Luc Donckerwolke declared in an interview that the firm was “serious” about the car’s potential future, leaving the question unanswered.

Last year, Hyundai debuted the N Vision 74, a remarkable tribute with a battery and hydrogen-powered system. Reportedly, the car sported two motors on the rear axle for torque vectoring and boasted an immense powertrain yielding more than 671 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Furthermore, it was equipped with a plentiful 373 miles range when both its battery and fuel cell were topped up.

“Hyundai Motor has a history of taking on daring adventures and being devoted to innovation,” Chang declared. The company has made daring design decisions in the past, and we would be delighted to see the Pony spark ideas for future Hyundai models. The exhibition is now open to the public at the Motorstudio, and will be available until August 6. You can book your tickets here.
