Hyundai Is Allegedly Ending Its Partnership With Rimac

Reports have emerged that Hyundai is allegedly ending its partnership with Rimac.


In 2019, South Korean automaker Hyundai-Kia made an investment of $90 million in Rimac Group. Hyundai and Rimac partnered to develop and make vehicles. Last year, Porsche made an incremental stake in Rimac, setting the future of the partnership with Hyundai in doubt. Hyundai is allegedly ending its partnership with the Croatian EV maker. 

When Hyundai partnered with Rimac, the deal was to make more than two vehicles. It was expected to be an all-electric variant of the Hyundai N lineup and a performance fuel cell vehicle. 


According to the reports, the two have ended the development of the fuel cell vehicle. But, there might be a chance that the EV isn’t dead. The sports EV will be launched in early 2023. And Hyundai will complete its development in-house. Hyundai took a 12% stake in the company by investing in Rimac, which the company would sell when the partnership will get over.
