MONTRÉAL, QC (January 18th, 2024) – Today at the Montréal Auto Show, with the help of NHL Alumni and Montréal Canadiens icon Yvan Cournoyer, Hyundai Canada announced the addition of a Canadian-exclusive NHL Edition for its all-new 2024 Santa Fe.
Made for those who drive hockey, the Santa Fe NHL Edition will be differentiated with personalized Luxwood door sills, and WeatherTech floor and cargo liners featuring the team logo of the customer’s choosing. From the outside, the Santa Fe NHL Edition stands out with its “Creamy White” matte exterior colour and 20-inch, multi-spoke black alloy wheels, both exclusive to this special edition model.
“At Hyundai Canada, we are very proud to be the official automotive partner of the NHL, National Hockey League Player’s Association (NHLPA), and NHL Alumni Association (NHLAA). Since the beginning of this partnership in 2022, we have strengthened our connection to hockey by securing a partnership with up-and-coming superstar, Connor Bedard, the first overall pick to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft,” says Christine Smith, director of marketing at Hyundai Auto Canada. “Today, we are proud to bring Hyundai’s commitment to hockey and our partnership with the NHL one step closer to our customers, by allowing them to personalize the all-new Santa Fe with their favourite team’s logos.”
“As a lifelong fan of hockey myself, I am looking forward to offering Hyundai customers a version of one of our core models that brings our partnership with the NHL directly to their driveways,” says Steve Flamand, director of product, corporate and digital strategy at Hyundai Auto Canada. “True fans of professional hockey teams appreciate new ways of showing their support. We hope hockey drivers across Canada – and the passengers – will enjoy representing their loyalty to their favourite team every time they go for a ride in the Santa Fe NHL Edition.”
After its first public appearance at the Montréal International Auto Show from January 19-27, the Hyundai Santa Fe NHL Edition will be presented at the 2024 Hyundai NHL Fan Fair™ at the Metro Toronto Convention Center South Building in Toronto from February 1-4 during the 2024 NHL All-Star Weekend and at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto from February 16-25.
