Hyundai Motor is set to unveil the Intrado at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The Intrado is a concept car that is built around a super-lightweight structure made from a mixture of advanced materials. The car also features a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain that is both smaller and lighter than that powering the assembly-line-produced Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell.
Intrado will be the first Hyundai concept car inspired by the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design scheme. The result of close collaboration between Hyundai Motor’s design and engineering teams, Intrado was styled and engineered primarily at Hyundai Motor European R&D centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany. Intrado takes its name from the underside of an aircraft’s wing, which produces lift, enabling flight to take place. The advanced technical aspects of Intrado also take inspiration from aircraft, such as the use of advanced materials, removal of all unnecessary weight and a highly efficient powertrain.
Peter Schreyer, the President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group commented on the occasion saying, “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 cars can be relevant and exciting.” Keep your eyes peeled for the car at the Geneva Motor Show to be held next year.
