2010 Hyundai Aebulle Concept

Is this what the Hyundai of the future will look like? This concept was designed by Shane Baxley from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. It is called Aebulle ("aebulle" means "cocoon" in Korean) and represents a futuristic three-wheeler vehicle with an electric powertrain and a magnesium frame.

"The main idea was to design a personal vehicle that delivers the mobility and speed of a motorcycle while offering the safety that a cocoon offers a butterfly. The Aebulle is targeted for the Los Angeles region where it would utilize the commuter lanes allowing its occupant a quick commute."

The concept was designed to be powered by compact in-wheel electric motors coupled with lithium batteries stored in the floor of the vehicle. It’s front wheels are connected to separate independent swing arms that allow the Aebulle to glide around corners. The body is made up of an aluminum frame and the "windshield" is made up of aluminum oxynitride glass. The whole top of the three-wheeler lifts up, taking with it the center console and allowing the passenger to make his exit.

Looks like its in the part of the movie Tron concept. Very sleek and modern, with a car with a 3 wheel is very unique.

It really looks like a cocoon and I’m impressed with it. It is so unique but I’m confused with the wheels thought it is still can catch the attention of anyone.

It is a personal vehicle, so I think this only fits for one person. As we notice on the image, it looks like a cocoon. I definitely prefer this if ever. It will grab anybody’s’ attention.

Maybe a two-seater will be in the conceptualization process. Who cares? I would prefer driving my own car.

How would you fit inside? Does it have any specifications? What about others who would like to take their wife on a trip?

I’m dreaming that this one will be feature in movies. So that we can imagine how it worked and if its really worth buying it.

Oh yes! I really want to see a bubble version of this car for I find the detailing good! BTW, While looking this car it reminded me of the ConnectedDrive Concept of Hyundai.

Electric are very fuel efficient and it really helps to the fuel crisis of our country. However, with its strange look I think everyone will be awkward to use that one. I prefer bubble cars compare to this one!

A cocoon type vehicle in the future! Looks weird but I love how it was being conceptualized. I can image tons of cocoons motors running on the street.

im speechless, the design is so cool I cant find any word to describe it. Was this a car or what? Really, really cool, I think im drooling. I just hope it can offer a better performance

wow! That is a car? Very impressive design though and futuristic. Now I can see the future of cars it will definitely evolved!

Oh! can’t wait to see the latest from Hyundai. I hope they could give something "new". IMO, the Aebulle looks like a VW, "VW new concept" i guess.

I agree with you, Hyundai is really making a big scene in automobile industry this coming year.

This is a mind-blowing concept. The wheels is really great too.

I think this one of the kind motorcycle that you don’t want even a single dust will come on it..Damn! that wheel is so cool!smiley

Doesn’t look like Murano at all. Looks like a CUV version of the ford fiesta. Which is not a bad thing.

It’s electric! Wow. Am so amazed. It’s very futuristic. Two thumbs up for the concept!

Woah! The coolest concept ever. I wanna be see the future! Great design.

what a futuristic design for a motorcycle..This is would be a great hit.

I totally love the concept! Something different yet very stylish. I’m excited to see this 3-wheeled vehicle on the road.
