It does not take much to launch speculation of any kind in the world of the automobile. For example, when a manufacturer files the rights to use a new name, it is usually linked to a future model that will be marketed under that name.
That’s exactly what has happened since the Korean manufacturer Hyundai registered the name “Leonis” in the US patent register. All we know for now is that this name refers to an object in the category of cars, trucks, pickups, buses and other motorized vehicles.
So difficult for now to imagine what this name would specifically refer. But we can obviously bet on a new Hyundai model. Note that Hyundai also filed the name “Palisade”, which is more likely to reference the future high-end SUV brand.
