Back in 2019, Hyundai unveiled the “45” concept at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt. Now, this futuristic design inspires its latest — and smallest-ever — electric car.

Introducing a Hyundai for kids, this yet-to-be-named EV draws from the “45’s” kinetic cube lamp design language and downsizes this to create a single-seater for children. It is fitted with two DC motors that push the car to 4.3 MPH, and it draws from racing cars thanks to its central racing seat position.

Furthermore, it is made from wood and features something Hyundai calls Emotion Adaptive Vehicle Control (EAVC) technology. Essentially, EAVC reads a child’s emotions, for example using their facial expressions to adjust music and lighting accordingly. There is also an air pocket that gives a sense of safety like a seatbelt would, while elements such as the driver’s heart rate and respiration are measured with sensors.

It is 1,380mm in length, 810mm in width, and 820mm in height, and is finished in “Performance Blue” over orange. Take a look at the electric minicar above.
