Hyundai Motor presented the
‘Vision G’ Coupe Concept at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, an evolution of its
design language that will inspire a family of future premium products. The
concept demonstrates Hyundai’s passion for performance and luxury, while also
showcasing advanced connectivity and future control technologies.
“Vision G is the first
high-end premium coupe by Hyundai Motor. Despite its bold and powerful styling,
the concept is purposefully understated, creating a balance of opulence and
elegance that will resonate with customers who seek style without pretention,”
said Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer of Hyundai Motor
Company, adding that “Vision G represents a fresh interpretation of Hyundai
Motor’s characteristic approach of balancing design and performance, expressed
in a way that isn’t overburdened with glitz and stereotypical luxury cues.”
During the design process, a
unique collaboration was made between Hyundai Motor creative teams in North
America, Asia and Europe. The notion of ‘chivalry’ was a key inspiration to the
design teams who made efforts to ensure the car would be noticed and respected,
without being excessively exuberant. This respectful approach is evident
throughout the car, for example, the automatic door acts like a valet, while
recognising the self-sufficiency of the driver.
A sense of the car’s performance
capabilities is created by clever treatment of the concept’s exterior. The long
hood, high-beltline and understated cabin present an appearance of tension,
like a loaded slingshot.
At the heart of Vision G is
the 5.0-litre Tau V8 engine, producing 420 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 383 lb.
ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm. The Tau V8 engine family has been named in Ward’s
prestigious Ten Best Engines list three times. With high-pressure direct
injection for impressive power, low emissions and superb efficiency, this
latest version of the Tau V8 benefits from an optimised intake runner, enhanced
timing chain for reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), a low-torque
exhaust manifold, increased compression ratio and upgraded multiple-injection
mapping. These enhancements combine to produce a flatter torque curve at lower
rpm for even better driveability.
Vision G is also a reference
point for the newest Hyundai Motor technologies, providing customers with
maximum comfort and enjoyment while causing minimal distraction. The most
notable features are the central control panel ‘Remote Wheel’ and curved
The ‘Remote Wheel’ is an
ergonomically designed semi-sphere haptic touchpad installed in the centre
console. It offers intuitive touch and gesture interaction and responds to a simple
wave of the hand, minimising driver distraction.
Vision G is equipped with a
curved display on its centre fascia, delivering information rich in detail. By
removing all physical buttons, Vision G presents a simple and intuitive overall
The driver’s preferred display
content is freely interchangeable between cluster and centre fascia, helping
them keep their eyes on the road. All of Hyundai Motor’s latest intelligent and
safety functions – including Autonomous Driving System and Driver State
Monitoring – are intuitively and thoroughly implemented within Vision G.
