2010 Geneva Auto Show: Hyundai i-flow Concept Teaser
While photos and mechanical specifics still await its formal unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai has released this preview illustration of its latest concept vehicle, a strikingly aerodynamic sedan called the "i-flow."
The Hyundai i-flow was styled at the automaker's European design headquarters in Russelsheim, Germany. Beyond offering a peek at the kind of "fluidic sculpture" cues Hyundai anticipates incorporating into one of its future D-segment production sedans -- think next-gen Azera -- this stunning exercise in advanced free-thinking benefits from loads of other new technologies developed by the chemical company BASF. While no hint of what type of powertrain might lie beneath the Hyundai i-flow Concept's hood, we do know that its bodywork and interior elements make extensive use of innovative lightweight materials to trim overall vehicle mass and that its glass roof panel incorporates a large solar cell array that helps improve energy efficiency.
