Hyundai Grandeur saloon revived as retro electric concept car

It is the Hyundai Grandeur’s 35th birthday this year so to rejoice, the Korean model has specified the saloon a futuristic makeover and a new electrical powertrain.

The thought follows the exact brief as the firm’s new electrified restomod for the traditional Pony coupe, assimilating modern day engineering with the car’s traditional lines.

On the outside, Hyundai has swapped the nineteen eighties saloon’s front and rear lamps for bang-up-to-day pixel LED models. There are also some new facet mirrors, new system cladding, new wheels and a redesigned radiator grille which mimics the chequerboard pattern on the new lights.

When Hyundai’s the exterior tweaks are somewhat refined, the Grandeur EV’s inside has had a comprehensive overhaul. The firm’s engineers retained the car’s retro steering wheel and dash, but the analogue clocks, radio and weather controls have been changed with 3 screens.

The setup seems to be to be the exact process uncovered in the electrical Hyundai Ioniq five, sharing the exact connected electronic gauge cluster and infotainment process perched atop the dashboard. 

Hyundai has also additional a further display screen in the centre console, which controls the car’s heating process and acts as an entertainment centre. The company’s images clearly show the unit is available with a retro 80s piano application, also. The piano application (and any other tunes the driver wishes to participate in) is piped by a new 18-speaker stereo process. 

The seats are also new, and are upholstered in Burgundy velvet as a nod to the primary Grandeur saloon. However, Hyundai has fitted the chairs with somewhat racy Nappa leather backs, which are held with each other with thick leather stitches.

Hyundai has also swapped the normal car’s equipment selector with a jet plane-inspired alternative. There is a new concealed compartment in the centre console, also, which the organization states is best for hiding valuables these as watches or, as illustrated by the firm’s images, a wonderful pair of cigars.
