At this year’s Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, Korean car maker Hyundai premiered their latest concept car, the Intrado. This car isn’t just a preview to the world of where Hyundai’s Fluidic design language is headed, but also a hint at a possible new compact crossover vehicle.
The Hyundai Intrado has been designed from the ground up with ease of usability in mind, a fact that can be seen clearly with design features such as the opposing doors that facilitate effortless ingress and egress. The car is also an advancement in technology as it is built out of steel and super light but super strong carbon fibre. Also, for power, the Intrado uses a hydrogen fuel cell system which is hooked up to a 36 kW lithium ion battery pack. This setup provides a driving range of 600 km, far better than conventional electric vehicles.
The Intrado is said to have nimble handling characteristics and yet perform really well in collision scenarios. The exterior of the car was designed so that it looks simple yet sporty. Inside, the company has used a bright colour called Beaufort Orange to contrast with the exposed bits of dark carbon fibre. This new concept vehicle was designed and engineered mostly at the Hyundai Motor European Research & Development Centre at Rüsselheim in Germany.
