Hyundai Could Be Getting Ready To Rock After Securing Styx Nameplate

Hyundai has filed for another trademark with the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), thus securing the Styx name.

According to the application discovered by AutoGuide and visible here, the ‘Styx’ can be used on “automobiles, sports cars, coaches, vans, trucks, motor buses, electric vehicles and sport utility vehicle”.

At the time of writing, we could tell you if there’s a connection between Hyundai and the legendary progressive rock band that was formed in Chicago in 1972.

The publication speculates that the name could end up being used on a show car that could be introduced either at the 2018 Paris Auto Show in October, or at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, next March, although there’s nothing at this point to suggest that.

This isn’t the Korean automaker’s only trademark filed for this year. Hyundai has already secured the Palisade with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) this spring, which will be used on their upcoming large SUV with seating for up to 8.

And while this filling is obvious, another one, filed for approximately one month later with the same USPTO, raises a few questions. It’s for the Leonis name, which at this point is not attached (officially or otherwise) to any concept or production vehicle.
