Hyundai will debut a new concept model named the Intrado at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The concept is said to preview future developments for the brand.
The single teaser sketch shows off a small, or compact sized crossover model. Hyundai mentioned that it is built around a "super-lightweight structure made from a mixture of advanced materials and joined using a revolutionary technique that has the potential to change the way cars are constructed in the future". The car is powered by a next generation hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain that is smaller and lighter than the one used in the production ix35 Fuel Cell.
Styled and engineered primarily at Hyundai Motor European R&D centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the Intrado's name is inspired from the underside of an aircraft's wing that produces the lift.
Peter Schreyer, President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group, commented: “Hyundai Intrado envisages a motoring future that encapsulates the efficiency and freedom associated with flying. I believe in the power of mobility to deliver emotional as well as physical connections and this car helps us find again the joy of discovery. Intrado shows that future cas can be relevant and exciting.”

Unless the light is proving to be a nuisance while driving or it’s combining with a beeping stay away from the mechanics. Read more
Winter can be a tough season for car dealerships in colder climates as the bad weather dampens many customers’ enthusiasm for taking test drives, surprise storms cause people to cancel their appointments and avoid leaving the house, and people worry about damaging a new purchase in the elements. President’s Day sales offer some reprieve as great deals and the thought of spring approaching encourage many to get out to the lot, but between New Year’s Eve and President’s Day, it’s often a quiet time for dealerships.
