2010 Geneva Auto Show: Hyundai i-flow Concept
text size: A- A+
The concept employs Hyundai's first diesel-electric hybrid powertrain which comprises a 1.7-liter engine plus two-stage turbocharging and a lithium-ion battery. A six-speed, dual-clutch transmission is also included in the package.
Inside, the concept uses materials and technologies developed in collaboration with chemical company BASF for minimal weight and volume. "The cockpit's main interface centers around an expansive, contoured screen, which recognizes not only touch but also gestural inputs along its fascia-wide display," Hyundai explained in a statement released ahead of the Geneva debut when teasing the i-flow concept.
"Despite the sporty stance, the i-flow redefines the perception of space. Fundamental elements, such as the seats and centre console, were crafted for minimal weight and volume using cutting-edge materials from BASF," Hyundai said in a press statement at the Swiss venue.
"Hyundai's first diesel hybrid powertrain is also a key factor in delivering such an environmentally-conscious performance, as is the application of next-generation materials and technologies developed in cooperation with leading chemical company BASF."
