Hyundai Motor Company has pulled back the curtain just enough to offer an initial glimpse of its new Santa Fe. The latest generation of the company’s longest-running SUV will feature a rugged yet refined exterior design, as well as interior design updates providing premium amenities and comfort.
The teaser image reveals several new design cues, including the combined front grille and daytime running lights (DRLs) that reflect Hyundai’s new integrated vehicle architecture. Santa Fe’s redesigned grille is wider than before, expressing bold character, its chrome framing a geometric pattern that produces a striking stereoscopic effect. The eye-catching T-shaped DRLs are designed to be seen from a distance and hint at technological enhancements yet to be revealed.
A Hyundai USA spokesperson told me that the Santa Fe will remain on the same platform as the current car, just with an upgraded electrical architecture that will allow for new hybrid and plug-in-hybrid powertrains. There’s no word yet on if any hybrid setups will be available in the US, but it seems likely.
The Hyundai Nexo is a special electric car. Electrical energy is generated in his fuel cell while driving. This requires hydrogen and oxygen. A promising, clean drive technology that unfortunately has no future in Germany – at least not in the car.
Lighter, more range and quickly refueled. There are good reasons to choose the combination of fuel cell and hydrogen in the car. Unfortunately, good reasons are not enough for market success…
