    Part buggy, part jet ski Hyundai Kite shown at Auto Expo 2020

    Hyundai has showcased the futuristic, all-electric Kite dune buggy concept at Auto Expo 2020. The lightweight concept EV was designed by Hyundai Design Centre Europe in partnership with Turin-based design school Istituto Europeo di Design (IED).

    The Kite features no doors and comes with a steering column that's engineered to be easily relocated from the left side to the right side. The major talking point of the Kite is that it can be converted from a two-seater dune buggy into a single-seater jet ski. The jet ski detaches from the nose of the Kite. All of the Kite’s in-car functions can be controlled by the driver’s mobile phone.

    The concept EV uses four brushless motors placed inside the wheels for when it’s a buggy and a water-jet turbine for when it’s a jet ski. The Hyundai Kite features a monocoque chassis with a length of 3,745mm and a height of 1,455mm.

    To the disappointment of every Batman and Transformers fan out there, Hyundai's concept electric vehicle isn't intended for production.
