The 45 foreshadows a new era of Hyundai’s automotive design focused on electrification, autonomous technologies and intelligent design, according to the carmaker, so the “45” (codenamed as “NE” inside Hyundai Motor Group) will reach production according to our Hyundai’s sources and here you have the first prototype.
The South Korean carmaker is already testing a 4WD configuration that has an small motor at the front and a powerful one at rear, so this combination makes an engine that is more powerful than the existing one on the Kona EV.
On these spy pictures you can see some details like the front headlights or the C-pillar that are clearly inspired by the 45 concept car but we weren’t pretty sure and need some confirmation from South Korea and we go it! together with all this new information about codename, powertrain.
The progressive 45 puts a twist on a 45-year-old icon, the Hyundai Pony Coupe Concept, to introduce an entirely new in-car experience for self-driving vehicles of tomorrow.
Taking a look to the past is essential for moving forward, and the dramatic exterior styling of 45 excites the imagination and draws inspiration from the vehicle that first established Hyundai’s design DNA, the 1974 Pony Coupe Concept.
According to Hyundai, the 45 concept accentuates the forward-driven design direction while exploring the evolution of Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design language. ‘Sensuous’ stands for enhanced emotional values that customers can experience through design, and ‘Sportiness’ is determined to implement those values through innovative mobility solutions.
