Hyundai released a note today confirming their lineup for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and revealing a picture of the new i40’s interior. Hyundai i40 is a highly anticipated D-segment model which is a sporty wagon. It’s sort of a new niche.
This European-designed premium vehicle is an evolution of Hyundai’s form language ‘fluidic sculpture’, which gives the i40 an innovative and attractive silhouette around a spacious and luxurious interior. The sales of the new model are scheduled for June 2011.
At Geneva the i40 will be joined by the Hyundai Veloster, which makes it European debut, and the Curb crossover concept. Both of these vehicles were shown at the last Detroit autoshow.
The i40 will go on sale from June 2011, supported by an upgraded version of Hyundai’s industry-best, fully transparent assurance package Five Year Triple Care.
The i40 will be joined on stage by the new Veloster, the company’s groundbreaking all-new three-door coupe making its European debut. First shown at the North American International Auto Show last month, the Veloster features a unique 1+2 door configuration and combines sporting looks, real-world practicality and cutting-edge technology – as well as best in class CO2 emissions of just 132 g/km.
Another model making its European premiere will be the Curb concept. Codenamed HCD-12, this compact Urban Activity Vehicle (UAV) features next-generation fluidic sculpture styling, and serves as a test bed for future Hyundai Blue Link™ telematics technology.
Hyundai will also showcase the latest developments to come from its Blue DriveTM eco-focused program, including the electric BlueOn and ix35 FCEV. The company is targeting global leadership in the field of environmental technologies, with current and future Blue DriveTM models reducing Hyundai’s emissions in Europe.
