Hydrogen powered pony: Hyundai N Vision 74
They say that two is better than one - and Hyundai's N Vision 74 is perfect proof of this old saying. But of course that's not the main reason for a perfect combination of historically iconic design with futuristic touches and a sports coupe characterized by no less than two energy storage units. Rather, the Koreans are concerned with catapulting their brand-defining Pony coupe from 1974 into the future. Unlike the Ioniq 5, which is also inspired by it, the N Vision 74 relies on a sportier and flatter roofline. Common to the current flagship production car is the four-eye face with pixel look and the analog-designed taillights, which in turn sit under a mighty spoiler with two wing elements.
Similar to downforce, the N-Vision also takes a slightly different approach to the powertrain: Instead of a purely electric drive system, it relies on a combined drive system of battery-electric propulsion and a fuel cell. In addition to an extended range, this combination ensures improved cooling efficiency. Talk about cool: Turbofan wheel covers on all four wheels and a mighty splitter at the front round off the sporty appearance and recall the days of Kraftwerk's »Autobahn« and Coppola's »The Godfather III.« And now pay attention, dear purists: The N Vision 74 sends over 680 hp of power and 900 Newton meters of torque to the rear wheels.
We're eagerly awaiting series production.
