Hyundai i-Flow diesel hybrid revealed, full announcement in Geneva | Rpmgo.com



After teasing us with a sketch last week, Hyundai finally revealed how its newest concept, the i-Flow, will look like when it will be revealed next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

The car will be a diesel-electric hybrid, a first for the South Korean company, and previews a new D segment model which will take on the Ford Mondeo in Europe. The i-Flow uses a 1.7-liter inline-four cylinder diesel engine, which will be coupled via the Blue-drive system with an electric motor of undisclosed power.

Thanks to a multitude of traits, including the lihtium-polymer battery pack, the six-speed dual-clutch gearbox and the low drag coeficient of just 0.25, the Hyundai i-Flow concept will average 78.4 mpg (US) and emit just 85 g/km of CO2.

Besides this concept, it seems Hyundai will be upping the eco-friendly ante, with more efficient “blue” versions for its i10, i20, i30 and ix35 (aka Tucson), models. It has also been confirmed that its i30 hatchback will receive a facelift, the i30U, with a more stylish appearance.
