Hyundai premiered three vehicles at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, which took place from Nov. 22 to Dec. 1.
For style, the Hyundai stand unveiled the Vision T concept, the seventh in a series of Hyundai Design Center concepts expressing Hyundai’s evolving “Sensuous Sportiness” global design language. The SUV concept has a matte-green exterior finish and is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain, indicating its eco-lifestyle focus and inherent balance with the environment in which it is driven.
For performance, Hyundai introduced the RM19 Racing Midship Sports Car, with the letters RM referring to the N prototype model’s “Racing Midship” body configuration.
For the here-and-now, the automaker launched a redesigned version of the eco-friendly IONIQ car lineup in a North American debut. IONIQ hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric cars all receive refreshed exterior and interior designs, added infotainment technology and new Hyundai SmartSense active safety features and driving assistance systems.
“Across our range, Hyundai is offering the best in design, performance, and sustainability, and our presence at this year’s LA Auto Show has served to highlight those capabilities,” said Mike Song, Hyundai’s head of operations for the Middle East and Africa. “These are three very exciting cars, that show Hyundai’s talented designers and engineers are always ready to exceed expectations and set new standards.”
