Hyundai teases retro '45' EV concept
The concept takes inspiration from Hyundai's first model launched in the 1970s.
Hyundai is the latest automaker to debut a retro-themed concept, releasing a teaser rendering for the all-electric '45' ahead of its full unveiling in Frankfurt.
The 45 takes inspiration from the brand's first model, launched in the 1970s. The concept's back end resembles the Pony, a compact rear-wheel-drive hatchback that was styled by Italdesign.
Hyundai says the concept is a symbolic milestone for the company's future EV design, combining throwback styling and an evolution of the brand's 'Sensuous Sportiness' design language.
The 45 will make its first official appearance on September 10.
