Hyundai unveils its 45 self-driving EV concept at the IAA 2019 in FrankfurtHyundai unveiled its 45 EV concept at the IAA 2019 in Frankfurt. The "45" moniker pays homage to the 45-year-old iconic Hyundai Pony Coupe Concept, to introduce an entirely new in-car experience for self-driving vehicles of tomorrow. The concept car features some signature elements of the original Hyundai Pony Coupe Concept such as the monocoque-style body, aerodynamic and light-weight design inspired by aircrafts from the 1920s. In addition, the "45" moniker s also due to the 45-degree angles at the front and rear, forming a diamond-shaped silhouette that further foreshadows the design direction of future EV models.

The minimalist interior of the vehicle is adorned with wood, fabric and leather. It features lounge chair-style rear seats and front seats that can rotate to face other passengers. Moreover, the front-seat passengers can interact with the infotainment system via a projection-beam interface. This replaces a single central touchscreen with a series of displays and functions integrated into the dashboard itself. The 45 will be unveiled to the world on Sept. 10 at IAA 2019 in Frankfurt (09:25 CET, Hall 11). Hyundai will showcase various future innovations in-vehicle technology and integration of lifestyle applications to illustrate STYLE SET FREE. Source
