Hyundai Blue2 Sedan Concept


Seeing as this is effectively their hometown auto show, Hyundai was out in full force at the Seoul Motor Show with a host of new offerings. One concept that the Korean automaker brought was the Blue2 Sedan Concept, a car that the Korean automaker is pegging as the next generation FCEV sedan.

The car bears the codename HND-6 and is being touted as Hyundai?s very first Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle that?s powered by hydrogen and is capable of delivering 90kW ? around 120 horsepower ? and estimated fuel economy figures reaching an impressive 82 miles per gallon.

Aesthetically speaking, the Blue2 Sedan Concept has an exterior whose design language is being described as ?Intersected Flow? with other external features complementing the contoured form of the car, including the LCD screen panels on both the front and back, side cameras in place of the standard side mirrors, a roof camera, and automatic opening doors.

Inside, the Blue2 Concept features an asymmetrical dashboard, wider seats to make room for a spacious interior cabin, and a couple of out-of-this-world features, including what the company is describing as a Transparent Organic Light Emitting Diode (TOLED) monitor that has been officially christened the Gorilla Glass. This monitor appears more accurate and vivid compared to standard LED screens. Another unique feature is the Motion Sensor Moustick, a haptic wheel and motion sensor that respond to the driver?s touch and hand movements, giving drivers a new experience.
