Hyundai is all set to display its futuristic concept crossover car, Intrado at the Geneva Motor Show 2014. Intrado will become the first car of the company to feature their next gen of ‘fluidic designing’, soon to be seen in their future production cars including their compact SUV.
The pillar-less body of this concept crossover comes with more prominent and upright hexagonal front grille and LED headlights which hints towards the sporty and appealing approach of Hyundai designers. This 4-seater concept coupe car can easily be parked in tight spaces thanks to its compact dimensions and will target the young buyers and is expected to become a very comfortable and efficient car for long drives with added .
Under the steel panel of this car, the moulded and flexible hoop of CFRP contributes to the light weight of this car making it 70 percent lighter than a car with equivalent steel body structure. Hyundai has also implanted carbon fibre plastic in its body structure further giving it an advantage over heavyweight cars.
Intrado will be a front wheel drive car powered by Hyundai fuel cell stack and an electric motor. A 36KWh lithium ion battery is placed under the driver’s seat, storing all the electric power output while the high pressure tanks carrying the hydrogen supplied power are placed under the rear passenger seats however the power output figures are yet to be publically disclosed.
Intrado surely seems to be a very simplistic yet functional car which comes with Hyundai’s futuristic approach trying to engage the premium product buyers.
