Inventories of the Hyundai i30 Sedan N and Kona N SUVs are rising as shortages continue on most other models

Hyundai Australia got an additional allocation of the i30 Sedan N and Kona N SUV, but hot hatches and most mainstream SUV models still face long waits.


Australia is on the verge of a supply boost for the Hyundai i30 Sedan N and Kona N performance SUVs – but there are still long waits for the Hyundai i20 N and Hyundai i30 N hot hatches and most SUVs across the range.

Hyundai has announced that a further 637 examples of the Hyundai Kona N SUV and Hyundai i30 N Sedan will soon appear in local showrooms – as part of a total delivery of 1146 examples due in the coming months – as data shows Australia is one the most popular is markets in the world for the South Korean automaker’s performance vehicles.

Data from Hyundai Australia shows that Hyundai N (and cosmetically enhanced N Line models) accounted for about 5 per cent of the brand’s local sales in 2019 and the share of these models has risen to 28 per cent of the model mix over the past year, helped by arrivals of new models.



While wait times are expected to decrease on these two models – and some customers could have immediate delivery – dealers are reporting lengthy delays on most Hyundai models.

Hyundai dealer told drive There are small numbers of the Hyundai Tucson Elite and N Line package coming through, as well as regular versions of the Hyundai i30 hatch.



A statement from Hyundai Australia confirmed that orders for the Hyundai i20 N remain on hold and waiting times for the i30 N hot hatch are also being extended.

“The waiting list (for the Hyundai i20 N) has become too long and we now need to fulfill existing orders,” Hyundai Australia said in a statement.

“Supply of i30 N Hatch from the Czech Republic is also severely restricted. (Regular) Kona and i30 models, both from (South Korea), are a challenge, as is Venue (SUV).



“We advise customers to go to their local dealership and inquire about stock levels – if they are willing to be a bit flexible on price and (fittings), cars can be available immediately.”
