Hyundai Santa Cruz Could Roll Down Assembly In 2021



Hyundai has yet to provide a set production time, but recent news suggests a possible Santa Cruz build date of 2021.

We’ve ben anxiously waiting for the Santa Cruz since Hyundai first introduced its concept in 2015 at the Detroit auto show. Most would assume the wait would be a short one with all the positive reaction and feedback it received, but the model wasn’t green lit until just recently. Since then news has been scarce until now.

Reuter’s correspondent in Seoul has received news of Hyundai’s future production plans in the States. According to South Korea’s Seoul Economic Daily and their unnamed source, Hyundai is considering the possibility of moving their Tucson and Kona crossover production, along with a new pickup model, to their single U.S. plant in Alabama.

This comes at a time when passenger car sales are slumping in the U.S and the plant currently produces two sedans and one SUV model. They hope to increase the plant’s production volume from its current 380,000 vehicles to 450,000 annually.

In a statement to Reuters, Hyundai said they have made no concrete decision regarding production in the U.S. yet.

If these rumors are true, the Santa Cruz could start rolling down the Alabama assembly line in 2021.

But why the long delay from concept a few years back to production in 2021? Hyundai could have scooped up a large portion of sales because there were no competitors for the Santa Cruz, but now a lot of other companies are coining out with their own pickups and maybe even ute by the time the Cruz goes into production.

Head up everyone, looks like we have some kind of confirmation from KMAu chief operating officer Damien Meredith, he said “We’re waiting for confirmation. What they’re telling us is it’ll be here in 2021.” So from what CarsGuide has quoted, the Santa Cruz may debut or go on sale in 2021.

For all we know, we won't hear an official date until 2020 and the 2021 date is still tentative because they're still waiting for confirmation themselves. Let's hope they stick to this timeline and not push it back anymore.

Well, then Hyundai didn't move any closer to confirmation... Hyundai plans 38 EVs as it tries to catch up with rivals, so maybe they're planning to come up with EV version of Santa Cruz truck, what do you think?

The more I think about it I realize that Hyundai is gonna be a day late and a dollar short. They should have come out with this thing a long time ago and I should be driving it now. I've said it before, but if it is gonna be a true truck to compete with the Ridgeline, Colorado and others then who cares. Why would you wait another 2-4 years when you could just go out and buy it now. And why take so long? 2021 is a long way away and there is so many other things that will come out from now until then. I'm actually very interested in the Tesla Model P. And that should come out relatively soon (about a 2 year timeframe). Hyundai just flat out blew it.

Hyundai released their product lineup from now until 2020 and I don't see anything pickup related, though it could be one of the unmarked ones for next year? At least a reveal would be nice, though highly unlikely. I found this on Car And Driver and they don't think we're likely to see the Santa Cruz either.

Maybe they're considering the fact that partnering up with some other car maker is the best way around this much like what Mercedes has done with Nissan even though Merecedes already has the money to create their own from the ground up. If that's the case then i'd like to see them partner with toyota.

I doubt it, Hyundai hasn't mentioned a partnership of any kind when it comes to the Santa Cruz and it seems to late in development to go that route.
Maybe their pickup is hidden under the "diesel" model slated for release in 2019?
