Hyundai i-flow Concept Teaser Released

South korean manufacturer Hyundai is hard at work into redefining the way in which its cars are built and the latest development is the i-flow concept, a vehicle which will bring to the 2010 Geneva Auto Show "Hyundai's evolution".

The car has been designed at the European design headquarters in Russelsheim, Germany and is the embodiment of Hyundai's ‘fluidic sculpture' design laguage.

According to the carmaker, the name chosen for the concept "reflects the exceptionally aerodynamic shape and the flowing lines of the concept car's eye-catching styling, and retains the ‘i' prefix of Hyundai's established nomenclature."

Although details on the concept will be kept under wraps for a little more time, Hyundai did let slip the concept is using new technologies like the ones taken from company BASF (lightweight materials and solar cells).

The new D-segment contender, as the carmaker calls it, previewing perhaps the fact that it will be the forerunner of future generations Sonata or i40, will be unveiled at a press conference on March 2.

Until then, we are left with the carmaker's promise of 10 new models to be introduced in the next two years, with the first being the ix35. In mid-2010, Hyundai will introduce the facelifted versions of both the i10 and i30 models, followed by the B-segment MPV projected to be launched in Q4 2010. A small coupe will follow in the early 2011 and will be inspired by the Veloster concept displayed in 2007.
