At this point, such a vehicle is pure speculation. We haven’t spotted any camouflaged prototypes, but rumors have circulated that the automaker is at least considering the full-size segment. Hyundai last year registered the Pavise name in New Zealand, and in a recent interview with Carsales.au Lorenz Glaab, head of global product management at Hyundai Motor Group, hinted at plans for something. which would be located above the fence.

Entering the market on a large scale could be lucrative if prices are controlled. In 2019, General Motors sold over 250,000 body-on-chassis SUVs after you combined sales of Chevy Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade. It’s an area where competition is relegated to only a handful of choices, but with GM’s dominance in the segment for decades, it would be difficult for Hyundai to open up.
