Hyundai has unveiled a new EV concept car called the 'Prophecy'. It could be part of Hyundai's giant roll out of EVs, or at least the design elements could be.

Are there any aspects of the Prophecy that you'd want to see used on the Venbe? I really like the taillight design.

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 2, 2020 – Hyundai Motor has unveiled its new ‘Prophecy’ Concept EV during a video presentation posted on www.hyundai.news/uk showcasing the key elements of its styling and technology. Featuring the timeless design of a classic car, ‘Prophecy’ is inspired by the company’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy. It embodies ‘Optimistic Futurism’, which focuses on the emotional link between humans and automobiles by balancing nature and technology, emotion and practicality.

The unveiling presentation also covered the company’s electrification strategy, with discussion among three executives: Thomas Schemera, Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Group; Luc Donckerwolke, Chief Design Officer at Hyundai Motor Group; and Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing & Product at Hyundai Motor Europe.

Hyundai Motor Group is expanding its product line-up to include 44 electrified vehicles, with an investment of almost 50 billion Euros for research and development into future technologies by 2025. The expectation is to sell more than 670,000 battery and fuel cell electric vehicles annually by this time, and to be positioned among the top three EV providers globally. In Europe, more than 75% of the line-up will be electrified by the end of 2020, and the company aims to supply almost 80,000 zero-emission vehicles to European consumers this year.

Prophecy: defining a bright future for Hyundai designs

Prophecy establishes a new standard for the EV segment. The extended wheelbase and signature shorter overhang of the EV platform give Prophecy an iconic silhouette of perfect proportions. The result is a new EV architecture defined by pristine surfaces, pure volume and harmony of aesthetics and functionality.

Prophecy’s exterior features a clean and simple uninterrupted streamline extends from front to rear. In addition, the pixelated progressive lighting technology is integrated into the headlamp, tail lamp and spoiler, reflecting design elements presented with the Hyundai 45 concept.

The interior design of Prophecy also leverages the advantages offered by Hyundai’s electric platform, which it shares with the Hyundai 45 concept. A key feature is the joystick steering system, which provides greater interior space and offers more expansive views and ergonomic seating for the cabin occupants. The atmosphere inside Prophecy is continuously refreshed thanks to integrated clean air technology.

I doubt I'll be able to afford the Prophecy, but am a big fan of the EV. My last car was the BMW i3, which was a near perfect car for me (living in NorCal). (y)

I'll be interested to see what the price of the Prophecy or similar EV will cost. It definitely won't be as cheap as the Venue.

What made you switch from the i3 to a gas powered vehicle?

I had my BMW in Oakland California where there are a lot of plugs everywhere. I also had a condo where I could install my phone EV charging station. It’s a lifesaver when you don’t want to go out and fuss with the plugs in public. If I would had the ability to put a plug in my apartment here in Chicago I probably would’ve gotten another plug and EV. But the rental does not allow it. California has a very progressive law where you cannot prevent someone from putting in an EV charger based on some nebulous worry. Here in Illinois still possible for an owner to say you cannot put a charger on the wall. So that’s the main reason I got the venue instead of keeping my BMW. Was happy with the gas mileage I got going down to Indiana. I filled it up with half a tank and it was only $6.25. Gas prices in Indiana were roughly $1.29 per gallon. I’m sure that will go away this summer

I'm bracing myself for when gas prices shoot back up again. Did you ask about installing a charger for your place in Chicago?
