Hyundai Veloster is one of the weirdest cars on sale today.
However it may not be available for long.
The compact hatchback has an asymmetrical passenger door design with a large door for the driver and two smaller ones on the passenger side that provide easy access to the rear seat.
In markets where vehicles have a steering wheel on the right side, Hyundai is very committed to the idea that the doors can be changed to go with it.
Nearly 40,000 Velosters were sold in the US in the first full year of its launch in 2012, but when the second-generation version was launched in 2019, that number dropped to nearly 12,000 and has been declining ever since.
Only 2,112 velosters found new American homes last year. Hyundai has trimmed the most mainstream models from the range and is currently selling only the high performance Veloster N, which has a 275 hp turbocharged engine and starts at $ 33,595.
Hyundai will distribute as few as 510 Veloster in its home market in South Korea in 2021. Sources Now tell the Korea Economic Daily Will stop production completely by the end of July.

The automaker has not officially announced the decision, but the factory that builds the Veloster outlet reports that it will be used to boost the production of the more popular Kona subcompact SUV, which will be available in standard versions starting at $ 22,595 as well as N trim.
