Say hello to the Hyundai Blue-Will Concept, the fourth concept vehicle that showcases Hyundai’s talents from Namyang Design Centre.

It’s not just a good looking concept car though, it also happens to be Hyundai’s way of expressing its intent for hybrid plug-in vehicles in the near future.

The concept is a four-seat sedan that uses a 113kW 1.6-litre Gasoline Direct Injected engine mated to a 100 kW electric motor. It’s capable of 64.4 km on a single charge of electricity alone or an average of 2.22-litres of fuel per 100 km over long distances.

Some of the notable features of the Blue-Will include its ability to run hot exhaust gases into electricity, its lithium batteries are capable of recharging from a household electricity socket and it makes use of drive-by-wire steering.

Like the Toyota Prius, its roof is also covered in solar cells, however unlike the Prius which only uses its solar panels to run the airconditioning system, the Blue-will can actually recharge its batteries using the power of the sun.

Hyundai says it’s using the Blue-Will concept as a basis for cars such as the Hyundai i45 BlueDrive™ hybrid which is expected to go on sale soon.
