Hyundai has a tradition of presenting concept cars at the beginning of the year. This year, the South Korean car manufacturer is back with the M.Vision Pop and M.Vision 2Go concept cars.
The M.Vision Pop is an electric-based concept car built for urban mobility that has two seats for car-sharing services with Level 4 autonomous technology. However, this vehicle also supports manual drive and the steering wheel can be shifted to allow passengers to take the concept for a spin.
Talking about the interior, the concept is envisioned as a shared vehicle that can be personalized via a smartphone. As the company explains, users create a profile in the M.Vision Pop app and then attach their smartphone to the steering wheel.
It effectively turns the user’s phone into a digital instrument cluster. This model also has a widescreen display, which is broken up into three different sections that can be customized using the app.
Certainly an interesting feature, but the concept stands out more for its E-Corner Module. They combine an electric motor with steering, braking and suspension components.
It’s a little hard to explain, but the E-Corner Module allows the wheels to turn 90° so the vehicle can easily slide into tight parking spaces. The wheels can also rotate in the opposite direction to allow the draft to rotate 360°.
Meanwhile, the M.Vision 2Go is based on the same platform as the M.Vision Pop, but is envisioned as a delivery vehicle and equipped with a fuel cell power source that allows it to travel up to 200 km.
Given its mission as a delivery vehicle, it measures 23.6 inches longer than the M.Vision Pop and has a rear cargo area with adjustable shelves made of recycled plastic. The concept has a cargo capacity of around 600 liters and has a removable stroller that resembles a door from the outside.
The concept also features a transparent LED module, which acts as a window and can be used to display advertisements. The panels can also display animations to alert pedestrians and drivers that a vehicle is being loaded or unloaded.
