Hyundai unveiled a new concept car called Intrado at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show this week.
More than just a styling exercise, the Intrado is a study of lightweight materials and construction technologies – including the use of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) in structural members.
Intrado is the first concept designed under the direction of former Kia design chief, Peter Schreyer, since he was appointed president of Hyundai Motor Group in January 2013, and it reflects his brief to explore daring new design possibilities for the Hyundai brand.
Hyundai Europe says the Intrado envisages the compact car requirements of the millennial generation. The interior focuses on usability and adaptability, with innovative materials and contrasting colours designed to appeal to the ubiquitous "buyers with an active lifestyle."
The concept car is powered by a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, with a 36 kW lithium-ion battery..
