Sir, the first shipment is the one in December and it's only around 10 but cool story. Next year they will ship more than that obviously.@damianinpa This ^ is true, Hyundai doesn’t take orders. The best that they can do is, hold an allotment for you with money down and it won’t be 3-6 months. If you don’t get a signed purchase contract with the specific VIN they can sell the car at whet they decide to sell it at.
I imagine they told you, “come on in and put a deposit down and we’ll hold the car for you.” This is a come on. If you aren't able to get them to complete the contract right then and there with financing or cash, they’ll sell it with their “market value“ market up. The other side of this is acquiring the VIN’s for the allocations and they aren’t available until they are in bound. Dealerships have no access to production schedules, so they’re either blowing smoke or a salesman is attempting to get a presale.
If you really want one your going to have to get them to complete a signed sales contract with TTL included. I’ll bet they won’t because they have no VIN to bounce it off.
@TxElantraN you‘re incorrect in stating “there are 10 only for he first round.“ There is no first round. The first & second quarter production numbers are only know to Hyundai specifically. Hyundai’s production schedule slates release of the Elantra N per production allocations for the first and second quarters. Possibly, an early release in the late production 4th quarter, December.
Some of the larger corporate dealerships such as “Larry H. Miller“are aware of their allocations, which amount to 3 per authorized dealership. These initial allocations will include some of the largest corporate dealerships in the country first. Smaller dealerships will receive 1 or 2 at most.
Again specific numbers are not know by dealerships. Any dealership that tells you they‘re aware are boasting and spreading falsehoods.👍🇺🇸
So basically MSRP for a 6sp VN is the number they gave you. lolWell, I did sign a contract. They put in 33,750 as that is a guess of what the car will cost. They stated once MSRP officially comes out, they will adjust. With tax/tags and such it was like 36K which is correct for PA sales tax. So, I do believe them that I will get the car at MSRP with no markup. As long as they can deliver on the 3 to 6 months (Realizing that this isn't out, but, videos state they are due at end of Dec. to dealers..fingers crossed) at MSRP, I'll be a happy camper. Guess we will see. I did work with Finance Mgr. on this. At minimum, I should be one of the first from their dealership if not the first to take ownership of one. We talked several times about dealer markup and he assured me I will not be charged more.
Post the information from a reliable source. Show me the facts which you haven’t done, not the comments.Sir, the first shipment is the one in December and it's only around 10 but cool story. Next year they will ship more than that obviously.
I posted all the ones that are supposed to come in December including the Horne one and what do you know, I was correct. Now keep your guesses to yourself because I deal in facts. Please explain how the hell they're going to give my man a purchase order when they don't even know what the damn MSRP is??? LMFAOO
You are correct in Hyundai doesn’t take orders on vehicles and you basically hope the dealer gets allotted what you want and if not they do a dealer trade. You are dead wrong about them not allotting EN to dealers. Call the dealership I posted and ask them if they have one allotted to them.Hope so for your sake. I just don’t hold much faith for any automotive dealership in truth.
There are no real shortages of drivers, just a back log in longshoreman getting things off loaded.
There are photos of semis lined up outside, shipping facilities and docks waiting for them to get merchandise released from customs. it’s a sad state of affairs, especially looking at the economy and prices 1 year ago today.👍🇺🇸

Also, post the applicable VIN and purchase order with the personal information redacted.
I don’t need to guess, I have a reliable dealership which is one of the largest corporate sellers in the country.
I have no idea what your on about. Second thing is, you’ve posted nothing but an allocation sheet. Every dealer gets these, it’s nothing new under the Sun. There’s no VIN, so there’s no expectation of delivery. You blacked out the dealerships name so no one can check. What are you afraid of?You are dead fucking wrong about them not allotting EN to dealers.
Yes, I just read about it:Some reports online that pricing has been announced. Manual will be $32,925. Auto is $34,425. Hopefully, that is accurate as it is slightly less than I thought.
Yeah, I expected to see those seatbelts too. I too only want 6 speed, so, Kona N was out for me. Question since you have VN, how comfortable are those seats? I'm buying Elantra N site unseen. I had a prior Focus ST with Leather Recaro seats. They were sooo narrow and uncomfortable. I have more of a stocky build, so, I hope the bolstering isn't too aggressive. That honestly is my only concern. Everything else is exactly what I wanted. Digital gauges, phenomenal sounding exhaust, High beam assist, heated seats. It really checks all the boxes for me.Yes, I just read about it:
Kona N pricing was released as well
$35,425 for the Kona N.
For me, the Kona N was immediately out of the running because there's no manual transmission option. And even though I had a 2017 Elantra Sport, I just can't get over the looks of the Elantra since 2019 - in my eyes, the 2017/18 is the best looking one. Once the VN came out with the updates in 2021 (safety tech, seats, standalone NAV), I went for it. I prefer the analog gauges, manual handbrake, manual transmission, manual seats, and no sunroof among other things. And although this may sound silly to some, I really like the performance blue seatbelts. I'm honestly surprised that out of all the Hyundai N models, only the VN has them. None of the other N models have it, which is just baffling to me.
I really like the seats but I'm 150 lbs with a size 31 waist. These "sport light" seats have more aggressive bolstering compared to the previous seats used in MY2019/2020. I think you should go to a dealership that has a 2021+ VN in stock and just sit in them to make sure you're cool with them - otherwise you can look for a used 2019/20, but you'd forgo the updated headunit and no safety tech like rear cross-traffic alert.Yeah, I expected to see those seatbelts too.
