Hyundai has given us a sneak peek at a sketch of its newest concept car – the Hyundai i-oniq – ahead of its international debut at the 2012 Geneva motor show in March.

The sketch reveals a highly aerodynamic hatchback/shooting brake design with a long, low bonnet, an aggressive shoulder line, and a prominent rear end.

Developed and designed at Hyundai’s European R&D centre in Russelsheim, Germany, chief designer Thomas Burkle says the i-oniq concept previews “the next evolution of the brand’s ‘fluidic sculpture’ form language”.

“The strong arched curves define the silhouette of i-oniq, creating a playful contrast between the sharp character lines and soft but muscular features,” Burkle said.

At this stage, it is unclear whether the i-oniq will preview any specific Hyundai vehicle. Regardless, expect design elements from the concept to flow through to production models in the near future.

More information on the Hyundai i-oniq concept will be released in the lead-up to its unveiling at Geneva on March 8.
