The machine does not have a motor and is designed not only for children but also for adults

Hyundai has shared new details about the Soapbox project, which translates as “soap box”. It is a set of parts for self-assembly of a small non-motorized machine of an unusual wedge-shaped shape. Representatives of the brand claim that everyone can collect it.

In the first half of the last century in Europe and the United States, there was a popular entertainment called Soapbox Derby, which literally translates as “soapbox racing”. Its essence boils down to competitions in downhill downhill on makeshift boxes equipped with only wheels, no pedals or motors. Hyundai’s soap dish is designed for just this kind of fun.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

The specialists of the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center were responsible for its development. Most of the machine parts are made of wood. They are connected to each other by metal brackets and screws. Instead of a steering wheel – a pair of handles resembling bicycle; the wheels are borrowed from a garden wheelbarrow. Even a simple braking mechanism is provided.

When assembled, the “soap dish” reaches 1.76 meters in length and one meter in width – it is designed for one “pilot”. The body is painted in Hyundai’s signature yellow color, which is available, for example, for the Kona crossover.

The company has shared a video instruction for assembling the “soap dish”. Collecting a car is no more difficult than Ikeev furniture, and you can deliver it to the nearest hill in the trunk. According to Hyundai representatives, the “soap dish” fits in the trunk of the i30 station wagon.
