So many special edition cars and motorcycles are special in name only. A lot of time, you’re just getting a neat color or maybe a decal package. Sometimes, special editions are super low effort. Remember when Chevrolet turned the Corvette Z06 into a lame NFT, complete with a matching special edition one-off car? Yeah, nobody wanted it, even though the purchase of the NFT came with a very green real-life Corvette. Some special editions are also just flat-out weird, like that time Citroën made the Saxo Bic, a car-themed after the famed disposable pen.
Every now and then, a special edition comes around that is pretty cool, and that’s what Thomas found with the Hyundai Santa Fe NHL Edition. Limited to residents of America’s Hat, the Hyundai Santa Fe NHL Edition gives you a brown interior with a matte white exterior, plus Weathertech floor mats with the NHL team of your choosing.
As Thomas pointed out, the real special part is the fact that the Hyundai Santa Fe NHL Edition is the only way to get a fully loaded Santa Fe hybrid, which makes this pretty neat.
Not that any of you care, because the comments were full of ice-cold punnage. Nsane In The MembraNe started a pun thread:
Wow this is a real power play from Hyundai. This special edition is really the icing on the cake.
I’m gonna let you skate on this one.
And 3WiperB joined in:
Nsane… bringing the slapstick.
But it was Paul E who gave me the most laughs:
If it’s an NHL edition car, It really should only come with an ICE drivetrain.
Finally, I’m going to let Rollin Hand take the stick:
Here are the versions of this SUV based on Canadian teams:
Toronto Maple Leafs – Way too expensive for what you get, drivers annoy everyone except each other, and no matter how good it is, people call in to talk radio to complain they should fire Shanny.
Montreal Canadiens — this SUV hasn’t been really good for a long time, but got by on excellent braking and a fanatical devotion by its drivers, who remember when it was a lot better.
Ottawa Senators — This model’s a couple of years away from being really good, or so we’re told every year, only to see it rust out completely by mid February. At least the owner’s family sold the car…
Winnipeg Jets — This model’s been almost good a few times, but never good enough. The cold weather means it’s hard to get started. Drivers are becoming impatient.
Calgary Flames — Should be better than it is, but one of the drive wheels came off and rolled to Florida. Another one rolled to Columbus. They got replacements, at high cost, but it haven’t been the same since.
Edmonton Oilers — Freaking FANTASTIC motor, but safety and braking are lacking. But man, that motor….drivers love that motor.
Vancouver Canucks — better than expected, but this SUV is still raising questions about how deep it can go into the woods.
I have no idea if this is accurate, but it was funny! Have a great weekend, everyone. Your normally-scheduled Mercedes will return next week with Holy Grails, motorcycles, and more!
