This guy, the Hyundai i-Flow Concept, is said to be a preview of a "future D-segment contender" from the Korean automaker.
Showcasing an edgier take on the corporate design language that is currently beginning to infiltrate Hyundai's very brisk dealership lots, the i-Flow goes for a smaller exterior footprint but more interior space with a severely pared-down cockpit. The frugality continues under the hood with a 1.7-liter turbodiesel hybrid powertrain making it all happen through a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission, and recycling – energy harvesting, that is – is taken almost all the way with flexible solar panels on the roof and additional power produced via exhaust heat.
