Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric vehicle teased as ‘electrified streamliner’
Hyundai Motor has released a teaser for its upcoming Ioniq 6 electric vehicle on its social media handles. The video doesn't really show anything of the electric vehicle but puts forth the idea that the Ioniq 6 will be an ‘electrified streamliner’. This indicates that the electric car's silhouette will take inspiration from streamlined objects. In its Twitter post, Hyundai wrote, “Ioniq 6 (will be) the new streamliner in the EV era with the simple yet sensuous streamlined design."
The teaser video begins with a boy looking at a picture of a bicycle in a book with the message - Bike of the Future. Then there's a man reclining in a lounge chair. Next, we see clouds flowing over a mountain and then around a black pebble. Finally, there's a dome-shaped, window-covered building with a white hemisphere inside. The idea was to give the vehicle's general vibe by showcasing examples of streamlined things.
