Hyundai to introduce Intrado lightweight fuel-cell concept at Geneva show
11 December 2013
At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show Hyundai Motor will unveil Intrado, a concept car previewing future developments for the brand. Intrado is built around a super-lightweight structure made from a mixture of advanced materials and joined using a technique that Hyundai says has the potential to change the way cars are constructed in the future. The car also features a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain that is both smaller and lighter than that powering the assembly-line-produced Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell.
Intrado will be the first Hyundai concept car inspired byFluidic Sculpture 2.0. The result of close collaboration between Hyundai Motor’s design and engineering teams, Intrado was styled and engineered primarily at Hyundai Motor European R&D centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany—as indicated by its codename, HED-9 (Hyundai Europe Design).
Intrado takes its name from the underside of an aircraft’s wing, which produces lift, enabling flight to take place. Hyundai will provide more information about Intrado ahead of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
