“We have brought to live yet another icon that establishes a new standard for the EV segment as well as pushing Hyundai’s design vision to even broader horizons. A part of that expansion is what we call Optimistic Futurism, a design concept embodied by ‘Prophecy’. With Optimistic Futurism, our aim is to forge an emotional connection between humans and automobiles.”

Hyundai designers believe they have discovered the Ultimate Automotive Form in this new concept, thanks to its pristine surfaces, pure volume, aesthetic harmony and functionality. You can look at the panels and lines of the vehicle to see where Sensuous Sportiness bleeds into the new Optimistic Futurism design concept. The entire design is aerodynamically advanced, evident in many of the vehicle’s shapes. For instance, the integrated rear spoiler harnesses downforce to improve stability at higher speeds.
