The “Intrado” makes reference to the underside of an aircraft’s wing as the vehicle draws its inspiration from aircrafts. The concept makes use of high-tech materials and an efficient powertrain. It will utilize an evolution of the arrangement found inside the production version of the ix35 Fuel Cell, which will be not only smaller but also lighter.

The ix35 FC provides a range of up to 369 miles (594 km),  so the Intrado is expected to well beyond the 400-mile (644 km) mark, sice the Intrado will be lighter than the ix35. While the ix35 FC needs 12.5 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 kmph) dash, the Intrado will be successful in shedding a couple of seconds from this time.

Hyundai has stated that more details and specifications will be provided prior to the concept’s debut in Geneva.
