We are every day more aware that we must innovate, both in industry and in our daily lives. You have to open doors or survive an increasingly competitive and complex world. Therefore car brands piecework to grow, or at least not losing market share.

For example the SUV were, and are still an innovation with great consumer acceptance. Just as there are innovations, others do not, but at least we have to make sure they do not work.

The same is true innovation or idea of ​​the future that we will introduce today. Hyundai teaches us that it would be a new category of vehicles, the UMV (Ultimate Mobility Vehicle), It is consisting of a different vehicle to what we know today.

Korean brand knows him as “Elevate” Walking Car, and could improve certain aspects of current vehicles are not covered, or even bring new things to our lives.

The Elevate would be vehicles that could move as current, but also, They could traverse difficult terrain thanks to being able to rise and suspension type robot joints to make sure you get anywhere. Imaginad, This could save many lives, among other advantages.

The Elevate concept is based on a modular platform capable electric vehicles to switch to different bodies in different specific uses. This design has a unique ability to walk as mammals and reptiles, allowing you to move in any direction. The legs can also be folded up, where power is cut gaskets, and the use of a passive integrated suspension maximizes battery efficiency. This allows the Elevate drive at highway speeds like any other vehicle. But no one else can climb a wall 2 meters, overcome a trench other 2 meters, walk to almost 5 km / h on uneven terrain and achieve wheelbase 5 meters wide, all while maintaining your body and completely leveled passengers, and safe.

basically, a vehicle without emissions that can reach virtually anywhere. It sounds really good, We see if the idea prospers and fails to materialize. Surely, It would be a great evolution, ¿Appears in the?
