They mentioned that based on Vin the cars can come from Korea/Mexico or Alabama. I'm going to trust that the dealer will take care of me and get me the car within 6 months. Maybe it is an allotment request..not sure.

@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.👍🇺🇸

Well, 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.

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

So basically MSRP for a 6sp VN is the number they gave you. lol

Post the information from a reliable source. Show me the facts which you haven’t done, not the comments.

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.🇺🇸

Why would Hyundai not take a custom order or factory order like other manufacturers? Years ago I built a focus st to spec and 3 months later ford had it for me. It never occurred to me Hyundai would be different. The paper I signed has no vin but it was their promise to me to sell me an elantra n for msrp. I have no reason to believe otherwise. The sales mgr. said he knows this car will be hot and I will see markups at other dealers, but I'll get it at msrp and not a penny over. He said he's going to work to get me my build which is just white 6 speed. 3 to 6 months is likely turnaround. Handwriting Font Paper Paper product Document

Oh and I forgot. Before going to dealer I emailed sakes mgr. about ordering an N. He point blank in an email reply said "yes... we can order that for you..we just need 500 down" He went over the colors too which is accurate from videos online. People here will have their opinions but if these start showing up in Jan at dealers, I'm confident I'll get one and at msrp. Good luck to everyone who is also excited to buy the new elantra N.

Sure, they can hold an incoming allocation but it’s not a custom order. Otherwise, they have no announcement of any allocations as of now. Additionally, there is nothing signed by the dealership, only your signature, nor is this the actual purchase contract. It’s not even a dealership order sheet. So in essence, you don’t have a purchase agreement, only a verification of a deposit for an allocation.

This is what they do for someone who wants to purchase a specific allocation that hasn’t arrived. Come time for the actual purchase contract, they in fact can price the car with any makeup they choose. After 50+ years in experience of buying cars, you have nothing but a deposit receipt with a wag figure. Without their signed agreement and signature, there is no legally binding contract.

Not attempting to make you angry, just aware. Hyundai, has no ability of custom ordering a car from the factory. This is part of their business mantra as a high volume seller, from the beginning when they started selling in the USA.👍🇺🇸

Understood. I have faith they will honor the pricing. Like some honda dealers mark up the type R, but some people online report getting them for msrp. I guess I'll find out in a few months.

Acura sells at what they price the car. Otherwise the price is the price no haggling. Most likely they’ll call you and say, “we just got a newly allocated Elantra N in if your still interested, come on down and let’s do the deal. Why wait any longer?”

Again this is a come on that dealerships use regularly. They have a whole series of such sales pitches they’re taught to sell in volume.

Frankly, they gave you a time wag because they haven’t been notified of any in coming 2022 allocations. Hyundai is in the same boat as every other dealer, waiting out the Chinese computer chip shortage.

Intel is in full manufacture here in NM. They have nearly every Fab Unit working overtime to fulfill the requirements. GM, FORD and Daimler Chrysler have new cars, SUVs and trucks parked in mile long rows at every factory waiting for the chips.

Additionally, with Biden causing the supply change issues to force them to produce more EV cars, foreign auto manufactures cars are sitting on cargo ships out in the ocean waiting for arrival.👍🇺🇸

Well I hope they do call me. As long as they get one in 6 speed, I'm open to other colors. I'll walk if they try to charge over msrp. I was assured several times they won't. They also claimed they aren't having chip issues but rather cdl driver shortages.

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 1year ago today.👍🇺🇸

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.

Now how does that crow taste

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?

No purchase order, not even a purchase contract, no proof and no factual information or source to support the claims you made.

Let’s see those 10 units for the USA you flapped your gums about or factual proof. (oops, yet another one, so that makes 11 + 6 Larry H. Miller have coming in to NM alone. Which makes 17 so far). Kinda shoots down those original 10 you boldly proclaimed. You opened your pie hole now claimed it. Show us the proof, not the ramblings of a braggart.

Straight up, you actually don’t have a clue. By the way I really like prairie chicken but it’s your bull that’s a bit hard to swallow.🤣

Try some of that factual information you claim to be so big on.🤣👍🇺🇸

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.

The Veloster N will be the first and last of Hyundai Ns greatest hits. The homogenization of the N brand will be its downfall imo. They should’ve brought back a 2 door like the tiburon or something. Not this abomination of a front end. Went from timeless to whatever that front end is.
The N was originally a very raw car, now it’s window dressing for other “performance” cars.

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.

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.

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.

I really wanted to get a 2018 Focus RS for the longest time, but the Recaro seat bottom incline is too steep and I could not deal with the pogo effect. I know both could be swapped out but at this point I'm completely happy with the VN! I'm sure you will totally enjoy it (y)
