Hyundai Intrado: First Teaser Image Of A Concept That Prefigures A New SUV
|   Thursday, December 19, 2013
Hyundai will bring at Geneva in 2014 a concept called Intrado, which foreshadows an SUV powered by hydrogen. Although the propulsion system might not reach the production lines too quickly, the SUV could become reality in a few years.

The concept represents a small SUV, most likely belonging to the B segment, and the Koreans have presented a picture of it. Besides the name, Hyundai has revealed the name of the project managers, which is the Hyundai Europe design studio.
As we can see from the picture published by the manufacturer of Namyang, we have a new development of the Fluidic Sculpture design language, now at version 2.0, this time in a European interpretation.

The Hyundai center in Europe is located in Russelsheim (Germany), and deals with the development of new models of the Korean brand. Both design and technical part of the Hyundai Intrado have been the responsibility of the engineers in Russelsheim, and the team built a fuel cell propulsion system, which uses hydrogen to produce electricity. The system is a scale version of the technical solution used by ix35 Fuel Cell, the series model of Hyundai, fueled by hydrogen. The concept bears the codename HED-9, a giveaway that it's the ninth concept from Hyundai Europe Design.

The Intrado name is inspired by the lower part of the wing of an airplane, the section that is essential for increasing lift. The technical aspects of the design were also inspired by the aviation industry, says Hyundai.

Peter Schreyer, President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group, said that "Hyundai Intrado envisages a motoring future that encapsulates the efficiency and freedom associated with flying. I believe in the power of mobility to deliver emotional as well as physical connections and this car helps us find again the joy of discovery. Intrado shows that future cars can be both relevant and exciting."
