Hyundai showed the design of future electric cars on a retro conceptSeptember 10, 2019
Hyundai unveiled the 45 EV concept electric car at the Frankfurt Motor Show, designed to give an idea of future production green cars. Moreover, the prototype itself also provides a reference to the first independent models of the South Korean brand.
So, the name of the concept car is intended to recall the experimental model Hyundai Pony Coupe Concept, which appeared in 1974 – 45 years ago. In addition, the “45” index refers to body edges with 45-degree angles.
At the heart of the car is a lightweight monocoque, made in the style of aircraft of the 1920s. The car does not have a central pillar, and the rear doors open against the direction of movement for the convenience of boarding and disembarking passengers.
Hyundai characterizes the 45 EV concept car as “a symbolic reference point in the development of the design of future electric cars of the brand.” Finally, the experimental machine will be called upon to demonstrate the development of Sensuous Sportiness, the corporate stylistic trend – Emotional Sportiness.
As for the interior, the designers performed it in a minimalist style, since the novelty received an automatic control system. In the interior used natural wood, fabric and leather. The company noted that multimedia control can be carried out using the “projection interface”.
Earlier it was reported that by 2025 the Hyundai Motor Group plans to release 44 “green” models, 23 of which will receive fully electric power plants. At the same time, such cars can be configured using a special application on a mobile gadget.
The new system will allow the owner to control and make changes to the seven main operating characteristics of the car. For example, the driver will be able to increase the maximum torque of the unit, adjust the intensity of acceleration and deceleration, change the level of energy recovery during braking, and also set the value of the maximum speed.
