As the Hyundai i-flow Concept goes on stage at 2010 Geneva Motor Show, the Korean company releases more official pictures of this amazing car which showcases the future face of mid-size sedans by Hyundai, and for that reason it’s big news. With an overall length of 4,780mm, a 2,800mm wheelbase, 1,850mm width and 1,420mm height, the i-flow has a very nice four-door coupe shape and it’s powered by a hyrid-diesel powertrain.
It’s the Hyundai’s first diesel-electric hybrid powertrain and includes a 1.7-litre engine plus two-stage turbocharging linked to a Lithium Ion-Polymer battery to give a very efficient and advanced combination, particularly when partnered with Hyundai i-flow Concept’s six-speed, dual-clutch transmission.
This car also features some very clever experimental ideas such as flexible solar panel roofing to a thermo-electric generator which uses exhaust heat to produce power. These technologies will also make their way eventually into the production models.
So in a couple years by now, you can buy a Hyundai that looks like this and is packed with high-tech stuff you could only get in a Mercedes S-class! WOW!
