Hyundai to reveal full-electric concept vehicle at Frankfurt Motor Show

Hyundai 45 concept preview image- rear

The teaser photo released Thursday reveals an nearly DeLorean-looking rear end. Taking advantage of this, Hyundai has recently released the teaser of its forthcoming EV Concept, dubbed the "45".

Although it looks a little dated now, the first-generation Pony sedan was actually quite a coup for Hyundai. Arguably most distinctive is its rear.

The aptly named 45 concept has close ties with the first model to be badged as a Hyundai, the Pony from 1975, with the South Korean brand using it as inspiration for its latest all-electric offering. As well, Hyundai says 45 "accentuates the forward-driven design direction while exploring evolution of Hyundai's "Sensuous Sportiness" design language".

Little is given away about the vehicle in this first image, though clear to see is a multifunction steering wheel with touch-sensitive panels and a large digital display in place of traditional dials and gauges in the driver's line of sight.

The tools included insecticide-treated mosquito nets, indoor residual spraying, rapid diagnostic tests and drugs based on artemisinin.

Styling won't be the only thing we're looking at closely, mind.

Hyundai is more active than most in the field of electric mobility, with the Ioniq and Kona EV already on its roster. The 2019 edition of the show will open its doors to the media on September 10, and many vehicle manufacturers have already started revealing or at least hinting at what they'll introduce during the event.

As we bid farewell to the rather illustrious Monterey Car Week, global auto manufacturers are now gearing up for the next global mega-event of the automotive world - the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.
