The Nuvis Concept is one of these cars that the designers couldn't stop adding lines here and there. So most notable design cues on the Nuvis Concept are the gullwing doors, blue-illuminated headlights and Hyundai logo, the curved L-shaped taillights, and 22-inch wheels with Brembo brakes. Inside, it's also laid-out as a concept. So the interior is full of abstract line stitching on the floor and on the thin seats, and a gear selector instead of a lever. If the Nuvis Concept ever comes to production, these design hoops probably will stay only in the prototype.
As the exterior and interior are very futuristic, so is the drivetrain. So, underneath the fancy-pancy sheetmetal, the Nuvis sports homegrown Hybrid Blue Drive architecture that mates a 2.4L Theta II 4-cylinder petrol engine to a 6-speed automatic transmission and a 30kW (151 lb-ft) electric motor. Like any hybrid, the system allows the wheels to be powered by the petrol engine, or the electric motor, or both together. The hybrid system stores its electrical charge in a 270V lithium polymer rechargeable battery (5.3Ah/270V) that is housed in the crossover's trunk.
No word yet whether the Nuvis Concept will roll into production factories or not. So with that, the NY Auto Show closes its doors until the next year.
