Back at the 2009 L.A. Auto show, Korean-based Hyundai vowed to be green by reducing their vehicle’s mass across the entire range and therefore improve their MPG ratings. As a follow up to their promise, Hyundai unveiled the forward-thinking i-flow concept car in March of 2010 at the Geneva Motor Show. The i-flow was chock full of innovations from BASF Chemical company, and incorporated numerous new technologies including innovative lightweight materials and alternative power sources like solar cells — innovations the not only reduced the vehicle’s curb weight but improved its energy efficiency as well.

The i-flow concept’s flowing body lines are designed not only to cut through the air with greater ease and exceptional aerodynamics, but also catch the eye of any onlookers walking the show floor in Geneva. While the "i" prefix clearly identifies the innovative concept as a member of the Hyundai family and their commitment to technological automotive innovation and fuel efficiency.

Press release after the jump.

Press release

An all-new concept car is set to catch the ‘i’ of visitors to the Geneva Motor Show next month. Hyundai has chosen the event to reveal the i-flow, a stylish saloon that previews the look of its new D-segment contender.

Styled at the company’s European design headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany, i-flow is expected to attract much attention, thanks to its striking appearance – the latest product of the company’s evocative new form language, ‘fluidic sculpture’. The name i-flow reflects the exceptionally aerodynamic shape and the flowing lines of the concept car’s eye-catching styling, and retains the ‘i’ prefix of Hyundai’s established nomenclature.

The i-flow incorporates numerous new technologies from chemical company BASF, ranging from innovative lightweight materials to solar cells, to assist in reducing weight and improving energy efficiency.

More news of Hyundai’s star cars will be published in advance of the show and will be available on the stand. The company’s press conference will take place in Hall 1 at 14:15 (CET) on Tuesday 2nd March.

i-flow seems not a Hyundai vehicle. Well, it looks very different from the other Hyundai. However, I’m so impressed with this for it has a unique style but did they already put it on the market?

This is really a good-looking vehicle, and I noticed that it has a futuristic touch which only adds more attractive looks on it. However, I hope that it is not an electric vehicle.

I would really love to see this in person. I found it a very stunning and awesome car and I must say that it already looks good and great with its color but I’m still curios with its interior touch and features.

I thought Hyundai is only creating a common type machine but this one surprises me. It fascinates me like I’ve been seeing a car from the future.

Wow, Hyundai have recreated the Mazda 3 ! Take away the elements that won’t make it to production and we have the all new Korean Mazda 3. We should be happy, at least Hyundai isn’t copying Toyota.

Really, Hyundai never disappoint us! Look they have a brand new car model. A word class style will match the high society drivers. Is this the new campus heartthrob?

So how is the mileage for this car then? If it would be another car that runs as close as that of the genesis and elantra, I don’t think it would be making that much sales. Their vans and SUV are reasonable with the mileage, but with the cars, not that much.

yes for sure it will capture the eyes of the visitors of geneva, because of it’s rear tail light. it looks like a fish and for me it’s to ugly.
