Hyundai revealed a new concept car called the Blue2, to be shown at their home motor show in Seoul. It is a FCEV or Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle and features an unusual design.
The Blue2 (“Blue square”) is not on the par with other new Hyundai models design-wise and introduces a new language which might replace the current successful Fluedic Sculpture philosophy. They call it ‘Intersected Flow’.
This being a futuristic concept, Hyundai has packed it with some amazing technologies. The highlight of the car is a new infotainment system with Transparent Organic Light Emitting Diode (TOLED) monitor and ultra-light tempered glass, called Gorilla Glass, providing more accurate and vivid graphic information. The infotainment system is operated by a Motion Sensor Moustick, a haptic wheel and motion sensor that respond to the driver’s touch and hand movements, respectively, giving drivers a new experience. What’s more the car has a system that recognizes the driver and automatically opens the door for him, thus enhancing convenience. It also gets side cameras and a roof camera instead of conventional mirrors.
The Blue2 is also good for your health as it comes with an ionizer freshens the air inside the vehicle and antibacterial genuine leather with leaf-shaped patterns, called ‘eco-graphic perforation!
The car’s fuel cell powertrain powered by Hydrogen makes 90kW(1.65kW/L) with fuel economy of 34.9km/L and features low-resistance tires and alloy wheels which are designed to improve aerodynamic performance. The name ‘Blue2’ is a combination of Hyundai’s sub eco-brand ‘Blue Drive’ and the number `2’ from H2, the symbol for hydrogen gas.
