Hyundai’s New Concept EV Comes with Joysticks Instead of a Steering Wheel

Recently, we have seen a lot of electric cars have been making their way to the market. The concept EV from Hyundai is the latest one. Hyundai’s new concept EV “Prophecy” comes with joysticks instead of a steering wheel. The new concept car brings together a set of cool technologies together. One of the key highlights of the car is its beautiful interior.

As we said earlier, the car’s navigation will be powered by joysticks. There will be two joysticks: one in the center and the other on the door trim beside the driver. As you can imagine, like a computer gaming joystick, these joysticks can be pivoted left and right. Hyundai claimed that getting rid of the steering wheel has not only given more emphasis on autonomous driving but it has also created more space inside the car.

Now, as far as the interior is concerned, there is an unusual wool-based carpet that controls the flow of clean air inside the car. The car comes with many screens inside. There is a big screen on the dashboard that covers the whole of it. Interestingly, the dashboard can also be flipped. And when it is flipped, it reveals a smaller screen that is present on the other side.

Hyundai had built it for the now-canceled Geneva Motor Show 2020. The prophecy was considered as Hyundai’s vision of future cars. The company claimed that its designers have achieved the “Ultimate Automotive Form” by creating an architecture that is defined by “pure volume” and “pristine surfaces”.

SangYup Lee, the head of Hyundai’s Global Design Center said: “We have brought to life yet another icon that establishes a new standard for the EV segment as well as pushing Hyundai’s design vision to even broader horizons.”

Hyundai’s new EV’s exterior is being complimented as “perfectly weathered stone” by its designers The overall design seems to take some cues like rear spoilers and the backlight design from the Porsche 911.

Apart from this, one of the key features of the car is the pixelated light design but however, it must be noted that they were also present in Hyundai’s previous model: 45 EV Concept car which was launched in 2019.

You should note that even though Hyundai started teasing the car, this car is not going to penetrate the market soon. It is more or less, a prototype with the help of which Hyundai is demonstrating what its future cars will look like.
