Named after the underside of an aircraft's wing, which produces lift, the Hyundai Intrado will be Hyundai's first concept car to show off the brand's new 'Fluidic Sculpture 2.0' design identity.
In this way the concept, which will be fully revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March next year, looks to show us into the near and far future at Hyundai.
It's been reported before that Hyundai wants to create a natural rival for the Nissan Juke, and such a compact crossover could easily be inspired by the Instrado. In fact it could also hold some stylistic clues about the next ix35.
It also embraces a future that's not as near for mass produced vehicles, with super-lightweight structure concocted from a mixture of advanced materials and a next-generation hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain that's smaller and lighter than the ix35 Fuel Cell.
The concept was primarily designed at Hyundai's European design studio in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and more pictures and information will be made available closer to its Geneva unveiling.
