IAA preview: Hyundai are strongly represented

Andrew Hopkins

Hyundai will have a number of eco-concept cars on show at their stand during the IAA in Frankfurt. The ix-Metro, a small, hybrid concept car, is set to debut in Frankfurt. According to Hyundai, it will emit less than 80g/km of CO2. An electric powered version of the i10 will also be on show. The i10 Electric will see limited series production in early 2010. In addition, two other Blue Drive vehicles will enjoy their European debut. They were premiered in April 2009 at the Seoul Motor Show: the Elantra LPI Hybrid and the Blue Will alias HND-4. Of course, the successor to the Tucson will also be present. The ix35 will surely become a hit, as it has already enjoyed success in Korea.
