Hyundai promises a series of important model launches in 2011

Article by Christian A., on October 18, 2010

Spearheading Hyundai’s series of model launches in 2011 is a new coupe that’s due in about 12 months. Based on the various coupe concept cars that Hyundai has shown in recent years, this new model will incorporate asymmetric doors, one piece of design that’s unique in its class. This means that like the Mini Clubman, there will be one door on one side of the car, but two doors on the other.

On the side that has two doors, the rear door will be rear-hinged, giving easier access into the back of a model that Hyundai claims will be a full four-seater.

Due to the design’s flexibility, buyers have the option of determining which side of the car has two doors. They could even request for double doors on both sides, like the Mazda RX-8.

There won’t be a two-door option. Before the arrival of this new coupe, Hyundai showrooms will already have several new models on display. The first to arrive is the face-lifted i10 supermini, which was seen at the latest Paris Motor Show and is set to start selling in the UK in March.

At around the same time, Hyundai will also start offering the low-CO2, Blue Drive versions of the i10 and i20 superminis, as well of the i30 hatchback and estate.

They all have CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km, exempting them from annual road tax and London Congestion Charge; that is, if London mayor Boris Johnson’s proposals are approved. [via What Car?]
