Unveiling future of travel

Hyundai has unveiled a smart new executive sedan, which is set for release in New Zealand this year.

The all-new Genesis, which had its debut at the Geneva Motor Show last week, has received critical interest for its advanced capabilities.

Hyundai’s vision of the future car is called Intrado – a concept car unveiled last week.

While Hyundai New Zealand says the exact specifications of the model to go on sale here are still to be finalised, it will be similar to the European model with its higher levels of luxury, technology and safety.

The European market Genesis will have a V6 engine and eight-speed automatic with Hyundai’s in-house-developed HTRAC all-wheel-drive system, sophisticated multi-link front and rear suspension and near-equal weight distribution.

Among the vehicle’s strong safety focus is the world’s first C02 cabin sensor, to avoid driver drowsiness.

At the Geneva show, Hyundai also unveiled the company’s optimistic vision of a future where mobility is more enjoyable with its Intrado concept car, which envisages how advanced vehicle technologies and intelligent design can combine to engage more effectively with driver and passengers.

The car’s use of lightweight materials, radical construction methods and advanced powertrain raises efficiency, while the design focus inside and out is on meeting the needs of consumers with busy lifestyles.

Fashioned from advanced super lightweight steel, it is powered by a next-generation hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, which can be refuelled in just a few minutes and has a 600km range.
