Hyundai Premieres Two New Vehicles in Geneva

Geneva Auto Show Prime Spot for Unveiling

The annual Geneva Auto Show is one of the industry’s highlights, allowing automakers to unveil new production and concept vehicles that may one day make their way onto American shores. Hyundai took the opportunity of this year’s Geneva show to unveil a New Generation i30 Wagon and the concept hydrogen FE Fuel Cell Car. Hyundai also showcased the new IONIQ plug-in hybrid, which will be making its way soon to the sales floor at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Europe Ready for i30 Wagon

Although there are no plans for immediate release to the U.S., the i30 New Generation Wagon shows the level of design and engineering for which Hyundai has become famous. The i30 has one of the largest boots in the European wagon category, with additional room under the boot floor. “The i30 Wagon speaks the language of the i30 family in terms of design and carries the new Hyundai family identity – the Cascading Grille,” according to Chief Hyundai European designer Thomas Burkle. “The tapering roofline and dynamic proportions give the Wagon an almost coupe-like silhouette. The sleek and dynamic profile is further emphasized by a rich chrome frame surrounding the side windows.”

Future Eco (FE) is Next Generation of Hydrogen

The reality of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles taking up a major market share of the U.S. auto industry is a step closer with the unveiling of the FE Fuel Cell concept by Hyundai. With a range of almost 500 miles before refueling, the FE Fuel Cell is a major step toward’s Hyundai’s goal of creating a zero-emission society. “Hyundai Motor has a heritage of building innovative, fuel-efficient vehicles and aims to become a global leader in sustainable mobility through its leadership in hyrdogen fuel-cell technology,” said Woong Chul Yang, Hyundai Vice-Chairman. “We want to realize our dream of a Hydrogen Energy Society and call upon stakeholders from various sectors, not just carmakers, to combine their efforts to ensure that hydrogen production, delivery and infrastructure are aligned.”

Plug-in Hybrid Final Leg of Triple Powertrain

The new Hyundai IONIQ, which will be available soon in the electric and hybrid versions at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale, also has a plug-in hybrid model that is coming later this year. An autonomous version was on display at the Geneva Auto Show, offering riders a virtual tour in the world of self-driving cars. “With the launch of the IONIQ plug-in hybrid, we are completing the IONIQ family and making e-mobility more accessible for everyone,” said Hyundai VP Jochen Sengpiehl. “With the choice of three electrified powertrains, the IONIQ is a unique offer.”
