The 2011 Seoul Motor Show that runs in South Korea from March 31 to April 10 plays host to the world premiere of the all-new Hyundai Blue2 concept study. The name, which is to be read ‘Blue square’, is a combination of Hyundai’s sub eco-brand ‘Blue Drive’ and the number `2’ from H2, the symbol for hydrogen gas. Codenamed HND-6, the prototype is Hyundai’s first sedan styled Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV).

The four door saloon is powered by a fuel cell electric system that produces 121hp and returning a fuel economy of 34.9km/ℓ of hydrogen. The concept is also equipped with low-resistance tires and alloy wheels which are designed to improve aerodynamic performance. In addition to the fuel cell technology highlights, the Blue2 sedan also hints at a possible direction for the South Korean firm’s next design language, albeit in a futuristic form.

The car’s interior styling continues the futuristic look of the exterior and comes packed with features such as a unique info-entertainment system operated by a Motion Sensor Moustick, a haptic wheel and motion sensor that respond to the driver’s touch and hand movements. The dashboard has an asymmetric design while Hyundai added that it used a variety of eco-friendly materials.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
