The Solaris HS 2024 sedan, which is a rebadged Solaris, has begun to be delivered to dealers under its own logo. Let us recall that in winter, the former Hyundai plant in St. Petersburg launched serial production of models familiar to Russians under the Russian brand Solaris. The corresponding photos were shared by the Telegram channel Tagaz with a link to the YouTube channel “Mekhvod”.

Until now, sedans were delivered to dealers without any emblems. The place of the logo on the radiator grille was sealed with tape, and the kit included Hyundai badges, which dealers offered buyers to install themselves. At the start of sales, the cars were sold with the Korean brand’s badge. In the pictures and videos that appeared on the Internet, you can see an oval logo with a stylized letter S, which was patented in the spring. It can be found on the steering wheel cushion, radiator grille and trunk lid. Thus, the renamed Solaris began to be produced under the original nameplate.

It should be noted that the plant produces the Hyundai Creta crossover, the Kia Rio family and the Hyundai Solaris sedan. The recommended price for the Solaris HS sedan is 2.01 million rubles. However, the actual cost turned out to be significantly higher. The cars are manufactured by AGR Automotive Group. As for the HS model, it is a copy of the Solaris, having the same dimensions (4.4 meters in length) and the same power units. The range includes two naturally aspirated engines – 1.4 and 1.6 liters, with an output of 100 and 123 hp. They are combined with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic (photo: Hyundai; youtube.com/Mekhvod).
