Our reader @h.hyl_47 sent us this interesting pictures of a mysterious Kia EV6 caught in South Korea. At first look and due to the darkness of the night you could recognized as just another EV6. But looking closely you will notice a wider wheel archs and then inside we found Hyundai’s N-performance N seats.

The mysterious vehicle was caught in the street and despite we don’t know what this could be, it is clear that Hyundai or Kia are trying to play distraction. While the seats are clearly N, the stitching is yellow like in the EV6 GT.

So we could be in front of an early prototype of Kia EV6 GT or this could be the first test mule of Hyundai’s first high-performance N electric model. But we opted for the second option, as this vehicle has all the production parts of the EV6 except for the prominent wheel arches and apparently a longer wheelbase.

As we told you this week, Hyundai is abandoning the development of internal combustion engines, so that will suppose we won’t see that 2.3 Turbo midship model. But this is not the first time that Hyundai talked is working on launched high-performance EV models.

The potential expansion of South Korean brand’s performance models to include all-electric models was talked about by Hyundai’s Global Chief of Marketing, Thomas Schemera, who said: “We never stop thinking about expanding our product portfolio. Strategically, we are moving full speed ahead with eco-friendly offerings. We have a crystal clear plan. One thing is for sure: eco-friendly vehicles are on our priority list, at the top.”

So what do you think? Place your bets!

    It’s all green investors talk, ICE will still make up more than half of all vehicles produced and sold in the next half century or so. HEV and PHEV will become much cheaper, sub 20k.
