SEOUL, Korea, Nov. 22, 2002
- Korea’s premier motor vehicle manufacturer Hyundai Motor Co. lifted the curtain on new concept cars and new technologies at the 2002 Seoul Motor Show. The show officially opened Thursday November 21, 2002 at Seoul’s COEX Center where Hyundai exhibited 21 cars including the HIC
and HCD-7, two forward-thinking automotive concept cars, five show cars as well as important new engine and telematics technologies. This year’s show is being held under the “Meet Another Dream on Wheels” theme and runs until November 29th.
Covering over 2,000 square meters of floor space, the Hyundai display was the single largest exhibit at the show generating widespread public interest with its daring vision of the automotive future and innovative technologies that promise to make driving safer, more convenient and more enjoyable.
Taking center stage were the HIC High-Technology Intelligence Coupe and HCD-7 concepts cars.
The 4.5-liter V-8 equipped HCD-7, a creation of Hyundai’s California Design Center, explores new directions in luxury sedan motoring. Based on Hyundai’s top-of-the-range Equus platform and sporting a warm silver coat, the HCD-7 made its world debut earlier this year at the 2002 Chicago Motor Show and is making its first appearance before the Korean public.
