2021 Hyundai 45 Is Retro and Funky Electric Crossover

The upcoming 2021 Hyundai 45 electric SUV has been spotted testing recently for the first time. This model will arrive later this year and initially, the manufacturer promises a 300-mile range on the single charge. If you remember, the concept model has been shown to the public at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show and is direct competition to models such as Volkswagen ID.4, Skoda Enyaq, and the Kia e-Niro. From many recent reports, the upcoming SUV should be priced similarly to those models.

In terms of design, the Hyundai 45 reveals that it is wearing a very similar appearance as the concept, which was inspired by the 1974 Hyundai Pony Coupe model.
