Hydrogen-powered Hyundais are set to have a big presence at the Geneva Motor Show. The hydrogen fuel cell-powered Hyundai Intrado concept will make its debut at the Geneva show next March, previewing Hyundai's latest evolution of its Fluidic Sculpture design language, next-gen hydrogen fuel cell tech, and a new lightweight structure.
Named after the underside of an airplane's wing,
the Hyundai Intrado concept is designed to follow the purposeful nature
of aerospace design by using advanced materials and powertrains, and
removing all unnecessary weight. Though Hyundai is playing coy on
exactly what makes its Intrado so light, it says the concept is "built
around a super-lightweight structure made from a mixture of advanced
materials." Those materials, Hyundai says, are "joined using a
revolutionary technique that has the potential to change the way cars
are constructed in the future." Details on this "revolutionary" process
will likely be made known in Geneva.
Powering the Hyundai Intrado concept is the
automaker's next-generation hydrogen fuel cell. The new fuel cell
drivetrain is reportedly both smaller and lighter than the powertrain in
the recently revealed Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell.
Designed by Hyundai's German design studio, the
Intrado is our first look at Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design
language, which looks to combine the graceful lines of current Hyundais
with some edgier design cues.
The Hyundai Intrado Concept will debut during the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014.
