BLUE-WILL 2009 hyundai Concept Car

Hyundai has revealed the first pictures of an innovative plug-in hybrid concept car, Blue-Will. Due to be revealed at the Seoul Motor Show which opens on April 2nd, the “BLUE-WILL”, has exceptionally advanced technology crammed inside its striking bodyshell. The BLUE-WILL concept is powered by an all-aluminium Gasoline Direct Injected 1.6-litre engine which is coupled to a Continuously Variable Transmission and a 100kw electric motor which is at the heart of Hyundai`s parallel hybrid drive architecture. The Blue-Will with its plug-in 30 kilowatt electric motor and 1.6-litre petrol range extender has shades of Prius about its front end but get used to it. The Electric power, stored by a Lithium Ion Polymer battery pack, is neatly bundled with the fuel tank under the rear seat to maximise luggage space. That includes some solar cells on the panoramic roof, which you can still see through, and some eco-friendly plastics throughout, including headlamp bezels made from recycled plastic bottles, and other plastics derived from plant extracts. No word about it actually going into production.
