Hyundai Goes Zombie Hunting Again for The Walking Dead with Fan-Designed Santa Fe

Hyundai is no stranger to zombie-hunting vehicles as the automaker has been in cohorts with the creators of The Walking Dead comic book series for some time now, having shown the Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine and a customized Veloster Zombie Survival Machine at the 2012 and 2013 editions of the famed San Diego Comic-Con festival respectively.

The Koreans are now giving another one of their models the same post-apocalyptic treatment, this time, the new Santa Fe that will be revealed in the flesh at next week’s New York Comic-Con.

While the two previous models were designed by the creator of the comic series, Robert Kirkman, the Santa Fe SUV concept was penned by a fan of The Walking Dead, Anson Kuo, after he won a competition with more than 82,500 fan submissions.

“We love Anson Kuo’s take on this Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine – it’s creative… and deadly,” commented Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. “With help from the popularity of The Walking Dead franchise, Hyundai continues to expand the conversation around Hyundai vehicles with young and passionate audiences.”
