Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
At the Geneva Motor Show which is set to open for the media on March 4th 2014, Hyundai will show a new SUV concept named ‘Intrado’. This will be the first concept to make use of Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language (the first car based on this design was the production version of the new Genesis).
The company hasn’t revealed much in terms of specifications or images of the concept. Based on this single image, the Intrado seems to preview an upcoming crossover from the brand.
The concept is codenamed HED-9 (Hyundai Motor Europe 9) as it was designed and engineered by Hyundai Motor Europe’s R&D center in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
According to Hyundai, the Intrado uses 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”. It is powered by a smaller and lighter version of the ix35 Fuel Cell’s drivetrain.
Peter Schreyer, President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group, said –
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.
