There have been some virtual rendering images of 2024 Hyundai Palisade EV truck, and from the looks of the images, the new electric truck would look like the Silverado EV released for Asian market. Hyundai has their own ambitious plan and commitment to electrifying their models, and they are serious about it. Now they are focusing on electrified streamliners, offering concept rides and possibility of good performance. It’s too bad that the real deal hasn’t made into production, but with these virtual images, you can count on your imagination to view the possible future Palisade truck.
Response to Hyundai Plans
Some good and also negative attentions are coming toward Hyundai related to their future production plan, especially concerning their EV lineups. Not to mention that the company wants to make the EVs as sporty and reliable as possible. They revealed tech details for electrified streamliner Ioniq 6 and then made confirmation about the 2023 Ioniq 5 N. They also showed off their cool RN22e and also the N Vision 74 concept rides.
From these display show off, they are focusing on passenger vehicles instead of the pickup truck future. Although they are offering 2022 Santa Cruz (which were based from Tucson design), they only have one offer. When you have to compare the passenger cars with the pickup truck, it’s obvious that it’s not balanced at all. People want to have more for the truck segments.
The Virtual Design
Santa Clara is an imagined SUV with Palisade basis construction made on the unibody style. However, it’s hard to imagine that the SUV would make it into production, because it may not be able to stand the current EV competition. That’s why Kleber Silva, a virtual artist, tried to translate the idea into a real design, providing clearer image on how the truck would look like.
Before, the artist had created Hyundai Creta pickup, a quirky and small vehicle, in the basic ICE design. He was also responsible for the virtual design, imagining the future Tellurida Kia EV truck that would even beat the charm of Rivian R1T. But now, he is focusing on the unibody form of 2024 Hyundai Palisade truck.
Q and A
Q: Is Palisade a crossover SUV or a truck?
A: Palisade is basically a crossover, but the company seems to plan on expanding the lineup, especially with the electrifying scheme. For now, the main focus is about Palisade EV, but the regular Palisade SUV is still around.
Q: If Hyundai focuses on the truck, doesn’t it mean that they aren’t going to make the SUV?
A: Not at all. They are still making the SUV but they need to manage the proper timeline so it won’t crash.
Q: Is there any information concerning the price or release date?
A: Not until now. It seems that they are still figuring out the overall design and manufacturing plan for this electric vehicle.
We still need to figure things out about this Palisade truck, but let’s wait for 2024 Hyundai Palisade EV version.
