Hyundai is reported to unveil a new electric concept car at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. However, the automaker isn’t revealing any information about it except for a name, Prophecy.
By definition, concepts are meant to hint at automaker’s future plans and Prophecy is an apt name for a concept car. It is likely that Prophecy will be a counterpoint to Hyundai’s last Geneva concept car. The Hyundai 45 concept was a retro styled electric car meant to reference the Hyundai Pony rear wheel drive hatchback of the 1970s. It was the first car designed in house by Hyundai.
Hyundai commented with regards to the styling of the Prophecy that it will have the same Sensuous Sportiness theme as its recent production models. It is unclear whether the Prophecy will share any underpinnings with Hyundai’splanned electric production models.
In 2017, Hyundai announced a dedicated EV platform which is also expected to be used by Kia and Genesis. Hyundai has also confirmed plans to co-develop a different platform with startup Canoo recently.
