So far nothing is confirmed, but it’s possible…
One of the bigest secrets in the automotive industry is that Hyundai is working on a production version of the Santa Cruz truck concept.
However, it won’t arrive before 2020 but at least we know that production is underway. Keep thinking, if Hyundai is building a pickup, it makes sense for Kia to get a version of this model as well. So?
Michael Cole chief operating officer and executive vice president at Kia Motors America said:
There’s still no final decision about a potential truck from Kia based on Hyundai’s product. Cole wasn’t able to confirm it directly, but also didn’t deny it. – according to MotorTrend.
So? So, Kia wants to cover the most important segments on the market (SUVs and sedans) and to be competitive and then, if everything goes on plan, it could spend some money to work on more niche products.
