Frankfurt Preview: Hyundai i-Blue Fuel cell concept

Hyundai will be showing a new smaller 2+2 crossover concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in a couple of weeks. They are using the new i-Blue to showcase their latest fuel cell technology which the Korean company is trying to move toward commercialization. Hyundai wants to have the new powertrain in dealerships within a decade.

The i-Blue borrows some styling cues from the Genesis concept that appeared at the New York Auto Show, including the narrow headlamps and the grille design. The lamps follow the current trend of being pulled back over the top edge of the fenders. The vehicle was developed in Japan at Hyundai's Chiba Design and Technical Center while the fuel cell stack was developed in Korea. This will be Hyundai's first ground-up fuel cell vehicle rather than a modified production vehicle.
