Hyundai commercial vanThe commercial van market in the US is exploding with new products at the moment, with entries from Ford, Ram, Nissan and others. And we are seeing images (again) of Hyundai testing its own van in Europe, as well, though it's not known whether the model will make it to the US. While the company has offered work vehicles overseas in the past, this one appears to be a direct competitor to European vehicles with large bodies and tiny wheels like the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

The latest images show off not just the standard commercial van but also the pickup version, and interior for the first time. According to our spy shooters, Hyundai did not want people to see the inside of the test vehicle, reaching out specifically in an attempt to secure the pictures you see here. It's hard to say what's worth being so secretive about, but that big infotainment screen certainly looks like a nice addition. We still aren't sure whether the Korean company has opted for front- or rear-wheel drive for the model, but the gearshift suggests that it's using a six-speed manual transmission.

The pickup truck version has a cab that looks just like the standard van. Testing this variant suggests that Hyundai is addressing the need for multiple body configurations in the commercial space.

Other than the camouflage and cladding, the enclosed version looks identical to the previous spy shots we saw. Though the previous iteration had blacked out panels along the side where windows might go, indicating a passenger version.

      N'Ring time? It has camo. It obviously needs to be at the Ring.

      I'm guessing the rear differential under the truck should make it pretty clear. Unless Hyundai made one out of PVC and duct tape to trick us all! (not)

      The van & the pick-up are both rear wheel drive. Look at the photos from the rear, look under, follow the rear axle to its mid point & you will see the where the differential is housed( the pumpkin).

      Looks like the mini-van is making a comeback.

      Looks just like a Ford. Didn't expect that from the Koreans. The Chinese yes, but the Koreans no.

      Yeah, it's coming here. The real question is where it will be built. Will it come from the new plant being built in Mexico, or from Montgomery or West Point? Korea and the US have a tariff-free trade agreement, but it will still be to expensive to ship overseas.
