Hyundai announced the Intrado Concept. The Korean prototype will be officially unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
Intrado 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 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 inspired by Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. Intrado takes its name from the underside of an aircraft’s wing, which produces lift, enabling flight to take place.
“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”, said Peter Schreyer, President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group.
