Finally, we got an image of the Hyundai i-flow HED-7 hybrid concept, which will be one of eight debuts that Hyundai plans to do at the Geneva Motor Show. This car is intended to preview a new sedan that "redefines the perception of space" for D-segment vehicles.
The Hyundai i30u, the facelifted version of the i30, will also be shown at the Geneva show and will go into mass production right after the show ends. The i-flow is part of Hyundai's "fluidic sculpture" style theme.
The car is made more efficient due to its drag coefficient of 0.25.Hyundai used a 1.7-liter diesel engine with a two-stage turbo charger, six-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and an unspecified electric motor mated to a Lithium Ion-Polymer battery.
Aside from the low drag coefficient, the car impresses us all the more with its emissions of 85 grams of CO2 per kilometer, while using only 3 liters of fuel per 100km (78mpg US / 94mpg imp).
For its interior, the cabin is centered around an expansive, contoured screen, which recognizes not only touch but also gestural inputs along its fascia-wide display.
The exterior is finished in a "Liquid Metal" coating produced by BASF. Furthermore, Hyundai said that the i30u will show changes to design and performance.
Hyundai will also be showing off a hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle of the ix35/Tucson, and five efficient Blue Drive versions of the i10, i20, i30, i30cw, and the ix35.
