Hyundai previews Intrado Concept ahead of 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 10, 2013

Although we are in December, Hyundai revealed the first photo with the Intrado Concept that will be unveiled next March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. According to the Korean manufacturer, the Intrado is built around a super-lightweight structure made from a mixture of advanced materials and joined using a revolutionary technique.

Hyundai says that this technique will change the way cars will be constructed in the future. Moreover, the Intrado Concept features a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain that is both smaller and lighter than the one found on the IX35 Fuel Cell. Furthermore, the Intrado Concept is the first concept car inspired by Fluidic Sculpture 2.0.

Now let us explain its name: Intrado is the underside of an aircraft’s wing, which produces lift and enables the flight to take place. The Intrado Concept features advanced technical aspects from aircrafts, as it comes with advanced materials, removal of all unnecessary weight, a style born solely of purpose, and a highly efficient powertrain.

Peter Schreyer, President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group, commented: “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.”
