2011 Frankfurt Motor Show: World debut of the all-new Hyundai i30 C-segment hatchback

Frankfurt / High Wycombe (UK) –

Hyundai will be unveiling the new generation i30 at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) on the 13th September at 12.00hrs CET in Hall 6.

The all-new C-segment i30 hatchback is set to build on the remarkable success of the current i30 model and is the next evolution of Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture form language.

As well as the new i30, the Hyundai stand will also feature the full product line-up, including the new i40 Saloon and the all-new 1+2 door Veloster coupe.

Another debut for the Frankfurt Motor Show will be Hyundai’s new show stand, which has been inspired by the company’s Fluidic Sculpture design language and represents the new brand direction – �New Thinking, New Possibilities’.

The stand features zones within which different elements of Hyundai’s brand and products are displayed. A design area, for example, illustrates the fluidic sculpture philosophy and its application on new Hyundai models. A central walk-way allows visitors to see the vehicles from numerous angles, and electronic displays bring an added level of interactivity.

Many Hyundai executives will be present at the show, incl. Alan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO, Hyundai Motor Europe, Thomas Buerkle, Chief Designer, Hyundai Motor Europe and Tony Whitehorn, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK.

Established in 1967, Hyundai Motor Co. has grown into the Hyundai Motor Group, which has ranked as the world’s fifth-largest automaker since 2007 and includes over two dozen auto-related subsidiaries and affiliates.

Employing over 75,000 people worldwide, Hyundai Motor sold approximately 3.6 million vehicles globally in 2010.

Hyundai vehicles are sold in 186 countries through some 5,300 dealerships and showrooms.

Hyundai Motor UK Ltd has been named Best Car Manufacturer 2011 by Which? magazine and Car Franchise of the Year by Motor Trader in 2010 and 2011. All passenger cars now come with Hyundai’s industry-leading 5 year Triple Care package
