Hyundai Intrado SUV concept heads to Geneva Motor Show
Hyundai Intrado SUV concept a four seater crossover coupe is to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month where it will be seen in Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ styling language. It is the product of advanced research and development undertaken at Hyundai Motor Europe’s R&D Center in Rüsselsheim, Germany and has been designed under the tutelage of Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer of Hyundai Motor Group.
Hyundai Intrado SUV concept is seen, built of innovative material with hydrogen fuel cell powertrain and a new design philosophy. Powering the Intrado concept is a hydrogen fuel cell engine similar to that seen on board the ix35 with a 36kWh lithium-ion battery while hydrogen is stored in high pressure tanks located at the rear.
Power, range and performance figures are kept under wraps while the four seater concept will consist of a pillarless body and frameless doors. Its body surface is free of unnecessary accents, keeping external styling minimalistic though a prominent upright hexagonal grille and headlight arrangement are seen in the front.
Being constructed out of lightweight carbon fiber reinforced plastic means that the concept is about 70 percent lighter than a steel bodied model while rigidity is doubled. Interiors of the concept sport a contemporary and premium appeal with a hexagonal shaped steering wheel and an up to date instrument cluster with digital display for speedometer.
