Hyundai at the iaa: study i-blue debuts at the iaa

Neckarsulm, 5. August 2007 – hyundai shows its ideas of what tomorrow’s environmentally friendly mobility could look like. The asian manufacturer presents the "i-blue" crossover study at a world premiere. Internally, the concept car bears the name neos iv. The 4.85-meter-long, 1.60-meter-high i-blue was developed at the hyundai design and technical center chiba in japan. The study is powered by a 100-kilowatt third-generation fuel cell.

2+2-seater for the first time

While the results of research with fuel cells have so far been used in suvs such as the sante fe and the tucson, hyundai has now taken a further step towards series production with the 2+2-seater crossover in the d segment. With a wheelbase of 2.85 meters and a panoramic windshield, the i-blue is designed to provide a good sense of space. According to hyundai, the 115-liter coarse hydrogen supply could enable a range of 600 kilometers.
