Hyundai Motor Company has revealed the first glimpse of its smallest electric vehicle yet. The EV’s exterior style is based on the ‘45’ EV concept that Hyundai presented in 2019 at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt.
The engine packs two DC motors that push it to the ‘blistering’ top speed of 7 km/h. In keeping with the 45’s design heritage theme, Hyundai has built this unique passenger vehicle out of a traditional eco material – wood.
In a press statement, Hyundai says: ‘This new EV does not have an officially rated driving range yet, but driver’s laughter is believed to fuel the vehicle to travel further based on its Emotion Adaptive Vehicle Control (EAVC) technology’.
It adds: ‘Hyundai’s designers adapted the signature ‘kinetic cube lamp’ design of ‘45’ along with its angular yet smooth profile to create this yet-to-be-named EV that sports a Performance Blue exterior color with orange accents’.
Here’s how it was made…
Hyundai says further details will be revealed soon on how this one-of-a-kind EV will offer a unique mobility experience for young customers.
