New York Show-Stopper Preview! Hyundai Nuvis HCD-11 concept
Hyundai Nuvis HCD-11 concept
In case you hadn't figured it out, you weren't meant to see these photos. At least not until the New York auto show opens its doors on April 8th. But thanks to an observant R&T reader and his handy camera, we can bring you these exclusive photos of Hyundai's latest, secret concept car—the Nuvis HCD-11.
Understandably, Hyundai isn't saying anything regarding the Nuvis at the moment, but we can tell you the gullwing doors on this SUV open to allow entry into a 4-seat cabin. We also believe the Nuvis will be sporting a hybrid drivetrain. Whether the Nuvis is purely a design exercise or an actual precursor to a production model remains to be seen. But while the gullwing doors and floating-in-air seats might seem pure fantasy, we're betting the Nuvis's drivetrain is intended for production down the road. The last Hyundai HCD (which stands for Hyundai California Design Center) concept was the HCD-10 Hellion that made its debut at the 2006 L.A. auto show.
We'll have much more information on the Nuvis HCD-11 concept, as well as many other world debuts, from the New York auto show floor once press days begin on April 8th. Stay tuned.
