This is the first post of this marvelous blog and the start of this elementally beautiful journey.
To start with, the number of electric vehicles or EVs is increasing exponentially and in 2017 the number of EVs sold were 3.1 million. We simply are not here to talk about the past but to discuss ideas for the present and mainly for the future.
So for today, the news is –
Hyundai’s Chief Designer: EVs Shouldn’t Reek of Aerodynamics
Consider his new term for when a car screams that it’s electric: “Aero Affected.”
Hyundai last year said it will introduce 14 electric cars by 2025. Chris Chapman, senior chief designer at the Hyundai Design Center in Irvine, Calif., has put a lot of thought into how those vehicles will look and feel. We sat down with Chapman last week during a break in our first drive of the Hyundai Kona Electric and the newly designed Nexo fuel-cell car (shown above).
Furthermore, this statement of the chief designer is a little vague as all vehicles need fantastic aerodynamics for efficiency and ride quality. By the looks of the new Hyundai Kona Electric, no compromises can be seen in terms of aerodynamics from its smooth structure.
That is all for today! Come tomorrow for more content in E – Mobility.
