    The Hyundai Prophecy concept has to be one of the (virtual) stars of the 2020 Geneva Motor (No) Show. A cursory glance at social media conversations – from grown-up experts, not trolls – reveals a stream of very positive comments, with favourable comparisons to the classic 1947 UrSaab and also modern-day Teslas, as well as perhaps a sprinkling of 70s Porsche 911 in the rear wing. None of which is to suggest this concept is derivative, but just confirms what we already suspected: that Hyundai’s current design team have good taste, a broad palette and an increasing licence to be creative.

    Our concept cars are important, of course, but they are only the visible tip of the iceberg in terms of our design work. Their function is to communicate our vision and to prepare the audience for the change that is coming. In 2019, we will show the first production cars that were initiated under the new design leadership, and there are a lot more on the way. They are evidence of the new ‘sensuous sportiness’ design philosophy for Hyundai, and of the next chapter of ‘athletic elegance’ for Genesis.
