At an exclusive ceremony in South Korea, Hyundai unveiled the new BlueOn Full Speed Electric Vehicle (FSEV).

Based on the i10, the BlueOn measures 3,585mm long, 1,595mm wide and 1,540mm tall. It is powered by a 16.4 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery which powers an electric motor that produces 83 PS (61 kW / 82 hp) and 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 13.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).

When the battery is depleted, after traveling 140 km (87 miles), a 220V household outlet can fully recharge it in six hours. If you can't wait that long, a 380V rapid charger will replenish the batteries 80% within 25 minutes.

Developed at a cost of 40 billion won ($34,254,000 / €26,935,000), Hyundai will give 30 BlueOns to various Korean government organizations so they can begin testing and improving the country's charging infrastructure.

If everything goes according to plan, 2,500 BlueOns will be produced by the end of 2012.
