Hyundai has shed some light about their future plans concerning the second-gen Veloster, their Prius-like model and a new coupe.


Speaking to, Hyundai's head of product management Van Nuffel said a second generation Veloster is in the works but it will not be offered in Europe as it would be a niche model and only a handful of people would actually buy it, thus not making it a viable business case. He went on to specify the model will make the journey stateside, but refused to say whether it will keep the controversial shape and if it will adopt a mid-engine layout as seen in the RM15 concept.


Moving on, Hyundai's Prius fighter has officially been confirmed for a 2016 launch and based on what we have seen in recent spy photos it will be offered in both hybrid and plug-in hybrid guises.

Lastly, Hyundai also said the Vision G Coupe concept currently being exhibited at IAA in Frankfurt will serve as foundation for a new Genesis-branded coupe planned to come out within the next three years.
