Hyundai has a flying car to show off at CES 2020

  Hyundai has a flying car to show off at CES 2020 Hyundai is ready to transform the way we move around cities.Well, the South Korean automaker is ready to start putting its investment dollars into physical concepts because the company said on Thursday it has a Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) ready to show off at CES 2020. The concept will play into its grander vision of urban air mobility, which Hyundai thinks will be the next area hotly contested in the decades to come.

Hyundai on Tuesday unveiled the Prophecy electric concept car. Built atop a platform dedicated to electric vehicles, the Prophecy 's on-the-nose name all but tells us that Hyundai will be looking to incorporate some of these design elements in its future cars.

As electric vehicles change how automakers approach design, it gives each company a chance to pull from an entirely new area of inspiration, creating looks that might be a bit more daring than usual. Hyundai's latest concept definitely runs with the idea of creating something unique for future EVs.

Sony hasn't claimed estimated range, power figures, or any of the other numbers that automakers usually use to grab headlines when they announce a new EV. Instead, the Type-S seems to be more of a showcase of what Sony can supply to automakers moving forward.

Hyundai ’s Prophecy EV concept was slated to make its debut at the Geneva auto show, which was canceled over the global coronavirus situation, so we didn't get to take a look at it in person. We do have pictures though, and we're thoroughly smitten with the design of the car.

Hyundai on Tuesday unveiled the Prophecy electric concept car. Built atop a platform dedicated to electric vehicles, the Prophecy's on-the-nose name all but tells us that Hyundai will be looking to incorporate some of these design elements in its future cars . It's a wild departure from last year's concept EV, the 45, which leaned more heavily on vintage rectilinear looks.

Curves are the name of the game with the Prophecy. Every square inch of the car is curvy and sleek, with the light creating interesting shapes no matter where it lands on the car's body. Because there's no engine to worry about, there's barely any front overhang. The rear end is significantly wilder than the front, with a strange clear spoiler and a whole lot of interesting textures just below it. The transparent look of the spoiler is found elsewhere on the car, meant to show off the components at work that would ordinarily be hidden.

Hyundai has unveiled a new concept EV called the Prophecy with an ultra-aerodynamic profile and joysticks instead of a steering wheel. It's too bad that we won't be able to see this concept in person, because I suspect that it would look even more dramatic than the pictures suggest.

Hyundai is using the Geneva motor show to take the wraps off an electric concept sedan to showcase the brand's evolving design language, as well as its latest Dubbed Prophecy , the concept has been glimpsed mostly from the back so far, with the teaser image showing wide wheel arch flares and a thin

My absolute favorite part of the car is its "pixelated" headlight design. It looks plucked straight out of a science-fiction novel, and best of all, Hyundai has committed to using this specific design element in its future cars.

If you thought the exterior was wild, just wait. In addition to hosting some boss plaid fabric, the Hyundai Prophecy's interior is all about maximizing space, starting with the suicide doors that offer up dead-simple ingress and egress. Joysticks replace the steering wheel, and screens wrap around the upper part of the dashboard.

So. Many. Curves.

Other than being electric, we don't know anything about the Prophecy's powertrain. But that's fine, because the mechanicals aren't the point: This design study exists to give us an idea of how Hyundai will design future EVs. And by the looks of it, the future's going to be a weird and cool place.
