Hyundai showed off their Intrado concept at the Geneva Motor Show today and it is not only a display car for the automaker's next generation fuel cell powertrain. It is also a vision of the evolution of Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy.
Frankly speaking, this is gorgeous. The automaker says in the press release that the Intrado study, "hints at approach to a compact crossover car".
It features an interior that is focused on usability and adaptability and the cabin features radical construction such as seals of opening panels shut directly against the central carbon frame, displaying the carbon fibre whenever the doors, hood or trunk are opened.
