Hyundai has announced the Intrado concept which will be introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next March.

Judging by the attached teaser photo we are dealing with a compact crossover which represents Hyundai's first concept using the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. The concept’s styling was developed by the firm's European design team which was supervised by Peter Schreyer who is known for drawing the original Audi TT and also by its recent (and successful) work at Kia.

The "Intrado" name is a reference to the underside of an aircraft's wing as the vehicle draws its inspiration from aircrafts thanks to the use of high-tech materials and an efficient powertrain. The concept will utilize an evolution of the setup found inside the production ix35 Fuel Cell which will be not only smaller but also lighter.

The ix35 FC provides a range of up to 369 miles (594 km) so the Intrado should go well beyond the 400-mile (644 km) mark taking into account it will be lighter. While the ix35 FC needs 12.5 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run, the Intrado will probably be a couple of seconds faster.

Hyundai says additional details will be provided prior to the concept’s debut in Geneva.
