Gone are the days in exclusively Korean limousines Wore baroque. Hyundai relies entirely on a futuristic successor to the Sonata Design language. The Hyundai i-Flow baptized show car is shown on the G enfer Autosalon .

The shape of the i -Flow follows aerodynamics

The Hyundai i-Flow with the additional name HED-7 as a reference to the design in the European design center almost as a hatchback sedan. With a length of 4.78 meters, a width of 1.85 meters and a height of 1.42 meters, the i-Flow is positioned in the D-segment.

The design of the i-Flow body largely follows aerodynamic specifications. The front spoiler is adaptive, and the side skirts should have a calming effect on the air flowing past. The i-Flow face, like the side line with the distinctive bead, is based on the design of the compact SUV Hyundai iX35 .

With the lighting elements, Hyundai uses how already many competitors, relying entirely on LED technology. The glass roof, which spans seamlessly between the front and rear windows, is also striking. Integrated solar modules are supposed to improve the energy balance of the i-Flow and donate energy for an automatic shading system.

Bionic elements dominate the interior of the Hyundai i -Flow, which is lush with a wheelbase of 2.80 meters. Novel materials from development partner BASF help to save space and weight. The seats come partially transparent and with a structure adapted to the stress. A central screen, which reacts to touch and gestures, bundles a large number of operating elements. Circumferential lighting elements provide atmospheric lighting in the interior.

Bi-turbo diesel hybrid drive

Future technology worksalso under the hood of the Hyundai i-Flow. Here a doubly charged 1.7-liter diesel was coupled with an electric motor. In conjunction with a six-speed dual clutch transmission, the Hyundai i-Flow should achieve an average consumption of 3.0 liters (85 g /km CO2). The electric motor is fed by a lithium-ion polymer battery.

Further measures to reduce consumption are a complete encapsulation of the motor Storage of the residual heat, a thermoelectric generator to use the waste heat, various solar cells. In addition, infrared-reflecting pigments in the interior surfaces should reduce unwanted heating.
