Korean automajor Hyundai has teased a new concept SUV called 'Intrado' at an event at its Frankfurt based European headquarters. For now, the company has released a rear image of the new SUV concept, which is scheduled to be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014.

According to Hyundai, "Intrado has been built around a super-light structure made from a mixture of advanced materials and joined using a revolutionary technique that has the potential to change the way cars are constructed in future." This new SUV also features a next-gen hydrogen fuel cell drivetrain that is smaller and lighter than the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell.

Intrado will be Hyundai's first concept car inspired by new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. This car has been styled and engineered by Hyundai Motor's design and engineering team at the company's European R&D centre in Russelsheim, Germany. The design team worked under its new boss Peter Schreyer, who was leading Hyundai's sister concern Kia since 2006 and took over as head of design at Hyundai in January 2013.

The Intrado SUV takes its name from the underside of an aircraft's wing, which produces lift, enabling flight to take place. The SUV also takes its technical inspiration from aircraft, such as the use of advanced materials, a style born solely of purpose, removal of all unnecessary weight and an efficient powertrain.

Commenting on the new concept, Peter Schreyer, President & CDO of Hyundai Motor Group, said "Hyundai Intrado envisages a motoring future that encapsulates the efficiency and freedom associated with flying. I believe in the power of mobility to deliver emotional as well as physical connections and this car helps us find again the joy of discovery. Intrado shows that future cars can be relevant and exciting."
