Albert Biermann admits that two-wheel drive limits how much power N Performance can put into its first offering – the i30n – at least for now.
“For the base model there is no all-wheeldrive plan. The i30 will not come with it,” he said. “But you know Hyundai; if we think something is right for our customers, then we do it.
“We could create something at a very high performance level, but first we need to test the waters and grow some fan base, then we can reach higher and higher…
“It’s just a matter of performance level; if it goes up a lot then obviously you need to have all-wheel drive.”
