Hyundai released the first details about its Geneva Motor Show world premiere, the Intrado concept and it features advanced materials and technologies which draw inspiration from aircraft.
The study’s design is an evolution of Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture form language. The sporty crossover is shaped by the need to be aerodynamically efficient and free of unnecessary adornments. The concept's body panels are made of advanced super lightweight steel from Hyundai Motor's steel plant said to enhance crash performance and repair times.
The interior of the car features advanced materials and radical construction, and the seals of the opening panels shut directly against the central carbon frame.
Components that are usually concealed are highlighted, including the ‘see-through’ air vents and exposed frame onto which the seats clip directly. Styling-wise, the interior’s bright ‘Beaufort Orange’ color contrasts with the exposed carbon fiber.
The concept will be powered by a next gen hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain using a Li-ion 36 kWh battery. According to Hyundai, the Intrado can be refueled in just a few minutes and has a range of 600 km.
The Intrado is the first Hyundai developed under the direction of Peter Schreyer, who became President and Chief Design Officer of Hyundai Motor Group in January 2013.
