Frankfurt 2019: Hyundai and its Pony-Inspired Electric Concept

It’s no surprise that the 2019 edition of the Frankfurt auto show has been dominated by electric vehicles, in both concept and production-ready form. One of the more anticipated ones was the one teased recently by Hyundai. Yesterday was the public debut of the Hyundai 45 EV, a design study that pays tribute to the original prototype version of the Pony model presented back in 1974.

By no coincidence, the new EV concept arrives precisely 45 years after that first Pony, thus the name Hyundai has affixed to it. The number is significant beyond that, however. It represents the angles used in the design of the 45 EV, both in front and in back.

What’s more, the unibody chassis aims to invoke the way aircraft of the 1920s were designed. So despite the seemingly simplistic design of the concept, it has been thoroughly thought through by its maker. The car also provides a foretaste of the design direction the company intends to take with its electric products.

Conceptually, the 45 EV is built on a platform that uses the battery pack as the floor of the vehicle, which maximizes interior space and keeps the car’s centre of gravity as low as possible.
