Hyundai published new photos of its concept of the future Prophecy

The press service of the South Korean brand has published several new photos and more detailed technical information about the Prophecy electric concept.

  Hyundai debuted with its elegant Prophecy concept in early March. The presentation of the car was supposed to take place at the Geneva Motor Show, but the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Hyundai then sent out a modest collection of static photos of its concept. A couple of minutes ago, the automaker published a little more information about the concept and a couple of shots of the car in the real world.

Despite the striking resemblance to some Porsche models, Hyundai says the prophecy’s twisty shape is inspired by the design of cars from the 1920s and 1930s.

It is assumed that the car will use an advanced autonomous driving system, but manual control of the car will also be available. The familiar steering wheel has been replaced with two joysticks, with 90 percent of the Prophecy systems controlled by buttons on these handles.

 Prophecy has a display that occupies the entire instrument panel, which can be clearly seen thanks to the absence of a steering wheel. This screen can be retuned for entertainment when autonomous driving is turned on, turning the interior into a relaxation space. There are smart seats in the cabin, which can automatically adapt to a specific passenger, depending on his height and weight. One thing you cannot do is open a window. Instead, the car’s system pumps and filters air from the street to maintain freshness in the cabin, and even purifies the air in it when no one is in the car.

 As for the power plant, Hyundai still can not say anything specific, except that the car will become electric. The car uses the E-GMP platform, which is the first chassis of the brand, which is intended exclusively for electric vehicles.
