Up next in the Reno Ice Adult League concept are Hyundai N-Line. The team is named after the Hyundai sub-brand of high-performance cars. For this concept, the team is also know as Hyundai or N-Line. Their nickname is the tigers because Hyundai is Korean and the Korean National Team has a tiger on their logo. The team is owned by Carson City Hyundai, Lithia Hyundai of Reno, Hyundai Motors and Jeinbuk Hyundai Mototrs FC (a soccer team in the K-League owned by Hyundai Motors).
In this concept, Hyundai N-Line play in the Sparks Division of the B-League along with the Hot Shots, the Murder Hornets, and Q&D Construction.
The primary logo for Hyundai N-Line is an N. The logo is the same as the one Hyundai uses for their N-Line brand.
For this concept Carson City Hyundai wanted a RIAL team. They got Lithia Hyundai Reno in on it. They both worked to get Hyundai Motors to invest in it. Carson City Hyundai owns 40% of the team and are the primary operators of the team. The team offices and headquarters are in Carson City sharing part of the Carson City Hyundai building. Lithia Hyundai Reno only own 5% of the team and helps out with some of the team operations. Hyundai Motors owned 55% of the team while financing up to 95% of the team costs. Hyundai Motors transfered 9% of their stake in the team to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC. That gave them 5% of the overall ownership.
So Carson City Hyundai own 40% of the team while handling on and off ice operations. Lithia Hyundai of Reno owns 5% of the team and helps with some off ice operations in Reno. Hyundai Motors finances the team while having majority of the creative control. Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC owns 5% of the team while only really being there for creative input.
The first alternative logo for Hyundai N-Line is the other Hyundai N-Line logo used by Hyundai. The logo itself adds a shape to the primary logo with the word “Line”. This logo mainly makes its appearance on cars. The next six logos are the Hyundai logos. The first three logos on the bottom are their City logos. They are circle logos with “Carson City Nevada” and part of the capital building on them. The reason for the use of Carson City is because the team headquarters is in Carson City meaning the team is from Carson City. The last two logos are tiger head logos for the the Surge jersey.
Hyundai N-Line does not have any secondary logos. As an expansion team they do not have any throwback logos. They do not have any alternate throwback logos either. They are the first team in this concept to not have throwback or alternate throwback logos. The current Hyundai logo came out in the 90s so they just use the Hyundai logo as their throwback logo.
The Dark jersey is N blue, Hyundai blue, N red, white and black. The colors come from the colors used on Hyundai N-Line vehicles. Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC also used a N blue jersey in 2021 for their home goalie jersey. The primary logo is on the front. The white Hyundai logo is on the shoulder. There is also a tiger pattern on the shoulders. The Light jersey uses a slightly different. They have a similar two stripe pattern. The Light jersey is fc green, and black. It has the same logos. It is inspired by the Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC 2021 home jersey.
The 3RD jersey is black, N red, and white. On the front is a recolored version of the primary logo. On the shoulder is the Hyundai logo.
The City jersey is white, Hyundai blue, and N red. On the front is the city logo. It does not have any shoulder logos.
The Retro jersey is Hyundai blue and white. It has a tiger pattern on it instead of more traditional elements. On the front is they Hyundai logo. It does not have any shoulder logos.
