There's just something about seeing an electric racecar styled like a road car absolutely tearing up a track. Everyone knows the Veloster N is a top-tier hot hatch, but what's going on in this video of a Veloster N ETCR being shaken down at the Hungaroring can only be electron-powered black magic.
Everyone always fixates on the sound of electric sportscars, but this one is all about seeing electric performance in the body of something as familiar as a Hyundai Veloster. If you think about it, that's a very specific message for an automaker to send: "I want to push battery electric drive technology hard, and I want to do it in a vehicle that looks like something you can buy." A little more subtle than an Elon Musk tweet, but nonetheless a fairly direct signal of intent.
