In an unexpected move, Hyundai unveiled a new concept. This concept is the same pony model from the seventies that has been recreated with modern faces and green propulsion.
The Hyundai Pony Concept is now on display at the Hyundai Customer Center in Busan, South Korea; To build this interesting concept, the company’s engineers have gone for an old two-door pony machine and reconstructed its various parts. In the next step, it is time to update and equip this car with the latest facilities.
The director of the company’s interior design, Hak Soo Ha, was in charge of leading this interesting project; You may also find similarities between it and the new Ionic 5 model by looking at the pony concept images.
To make the pony concept look attractive and up-to-date, the headlights have been replaced with modern headlights; In the rear view, the lights have the same pixel structure as the Ionic 5. In addition, side mirrors have been replaced by rear-view cameras; These cameras are mounted inside the same frame on the front fenders. In order to pay homage to the original model, the designers inspired the old models in creating the rings.
Although on the outside, Hyundai designers have remained faithful to the original version, but inside the cabin, we see the transformation of almost all parts. The D-shaped steering wheel and the strange cylinders behind it attract more attention than anything else. Hyundai has not commented on the function or operation of the cylinders, and it is unclear what they represent.
Unfortunately, there are no details about the propulsion specifications and we only know that the gasoline engine has been replaced with an all-electric propulsion.
Not to mention, the Pony is Hyundai’s first mass-produced car. The car was on the production line between 1975 and 1990.
