- Prophecy concept EV named 'Best of the Best'
- 45 concept EV and Neptune fuel cell electric truck concept named winners in the 'Design Concept' group
- The 45 EV concept has taken three globally-renowned design awards, including Red Dot, IDEA and iF, since its reveal in 2019
23 October 2020 - Hyundai Motor Company reaffirmed its global deign leadership today by winning three prestigious 2020 Red Dot Awards in the Design Concept group, including 'Best of the Best'.
In the Mobility & Transportation category, 'Best of the Best' went to Hyundai's progressive concept EV, Prophecy, and Red Dot named both Hyundai's 45 concept EV and its Neptune fuel-cell electric commercial truck concept winners in the Design Concept group. Prophecy and 45 are part of Hyundai's dedicated EV line-up brand, IONIQ.
Prophecy is Hyundai's visionary concept EV that encapsulates pure aerodynamic design, expressing Hyundai's latest design identity, Sensuous Sportiness. Leveraging an extended wheelbase and short overhang, Hyundai's designers achieved the ultimate automotive form, thanks to a new EV architecture defined by pristine surfaces and pure volume in combination with aesthetic harmony and functionality. Moreover, Prophecy is the first concept car designed by a Korean automotive brand to win the 'Best of the Best' design concept award.
The 45 concept, which Hyundai unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show 2019, is a futuristic homage to the brand's 45-year-old icon, the Pony Coupe Concept. The design foreshadows a new era of Hyundai's automotive design focused on electrification, autonomous technologies and smart design. 45 is defined by its monocoque body style and aerodynamic and lightweight design inspired by aircrafts from the 1920s. The car's 45-degree angles at the front and rear form a diamond-shaped silhouette.
Neptune fuel cell electric commercial truck concept's design was inspired by the Art Deco streamliner railway trains that were the standard of industrial design from 1936 to 1959. The distinctive cascading design of its front end provides maximum air flow for increased cooling capabilities. Neptune reflects Hyundai's commitment to eco-friendly mobility and a hydrogen society.
