Hyundai is going to green-light the Santa Cruz Crossover Truck Concept this November, according to the brand’s US boss.
Hyundai US wants more crossovers in North America and the positive reaction of the public to the Santa Cruz Truck Concept helped them persuade the Korean HQ to consider putting it into production. Dave Zuchowksi, Hyundai Motor America CEO said that they expect the final approval for production by November, according to Car&Driver.
There have been many reports on the subject and it’s not the first time that the CEO of the Hyundai US is making statements on the matter, which shows how much Americans want the Koreans to pull the trigger and give the final OK.
As for the concept, the Santa Cruz Pickup debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, having a 2.0-litre diesel engine under the bonnet and a truly distinctive shape. Hyundai said that the Santa Cruz is aimed at crossover drivers who are looking for greater utility but don’t want a traditional truck and the usual compromises than come with it.
