The Hyundai 45 concept sets new standards for the upcoming electric vehicle era. It shifts the idea of a vehicle as an object for mobility to one that offers a comfortable room-like interior. All interior elements deviate from typical automotive interiors to create a living space consisting of furniture, blinds, and mood lighting. The roominess is achieved by placing the battery flat in the lower part of the vehicle. The exterior design is a departure also. Rather than a traditional square-shaped construction, all unnecessary elements were minimized and a diamond shape was used in which the glass and the door merge into a single surface.

Powersports (snowmobiles, personal watercraft, side-by-sides, ATVs, and motorbikes) have evolved a lot over the decades with one major barrier: there are very few reliable high-performance models that use anything other than combustion engines. It is one of the last industries to consider electrification because of the difficulty of recharging in remote areas, where these products are usually used. Although still in the early stages of exploration, the six EV Concepts were designed to provide a glimpse into what alternative energy sources could hold for the future of the powersports industry.

Essentia is an all-electric high-performance concept car for the luxury automotive brand Genesis that elevates the company’s signature “Athletic Elegance” design paradigm while providing a vision for future product performance and technology. It also brings sports-car-level performance to the realm of electric luxury coupes with an estimated 0-to-60 time of 3.0 seconds. Inspiration for the Essentia came from the proportions of the iconic Gran Turismo, with a long bonnet and swept-back cabin—but that is where comparisons end. Essentia features a lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque, a multi-motor electric powertrain and a custom-tailored interior. The interior uses a mix of materials influenced by high fashion and classic color combinations: cognac leather seats with chevron quilting, an Oxford blue leather console and seat belt slots composed of glass-pearl aluminum. The design of the battery pack sets Essentia apart. By housing it in an I-shaped structure in the center tunnel, rather than underneath the passenger compartment, Essentia is able to achieve a super-low 50-inch roofline and spacious cockpit-style cabin.
