In celebration of the opening of the brand's new design centre in Busan, Hyundai has transformed the iconic Pony into a retro-futuristic concept car.

In an effort to pay tribute to the classic, Hyundai has made a lot of changes and has turned it into a retro-looking electric car. The exercise involved equipping the vehicle with a series ofelements typical of today's cars, from the exterior paint to the finishes and available technology.The car even has'pixel' type LED lightslike those seen in the recently launchedHyundai Ioniq 5.

Based on afirst generation Hyundai Pony(1975-1982), this heritage car has a silver paint in matte finish.At the front, a simpler design bumper has been used, without the plastic anti-impact buffers, gray in colour. Added to this arecamera mirrorsmounted in the middle of the front fenders, 15-inch metal wheels, round 'pixel' frontlightsand 'U' shaped taillightswith 'Pixel Road Trip' design, both with LED technology.

The most striking thing is the reinterpretation of the front, since the classic "HD" logo is now backlit. The round headlights with LED technology have chrome housings. The chrome wheels also have a retro design, but are significantly wider than the original model.

The interior has also been completely transformed, but respecting the classic style of the original model.It includes top quality materials, added to the instrument panel withspeed meters made withilluminatedvacuum tubes.There is no lack of anLED lightingsystemfor the cabin.

In addition, there are other modern technology present inside the reborn Pony.It features adigital touch transmission, cell phone storage, and a new multifunctional three-spoke steering wheel withvoice control.

Hyundai did not confirm details regarding the powertrain of the Pony Heritage Series. But one of its designers confirmed that ithas a 100% electric motor.

Unfortunately, this car is not meant for production and no one will see the return of the old Pony back on road. It is just an additional boost topromote the newIoniq 5.
