Hyundai Kite

Sabelt has taken part to the creation of the Hyundai Kite, a futuristic two-seater lightweight dune buggy, which converts into a single-seater jet-ski created by 15 IED transportation design master’s course students and Hyundai Design Centre Europe.

The Hyundai Kite celebrated its world premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show showing two seats and seatbelts projected and produced by Sabelt.

The buggy is a doorless, roofless and windowless vehicle that can drive both on streets and over water.

The designers aimed to reduce barriers between the exterior and interior to create a functional and fun car. The lines convey an idea of floating and freedom, connecting to the idea of spending leisure time near the water.

The vehicle is equipped with electric propulsion, with four brushless engines placed inside the wheels and a water jet turbine for travelling on water. The Hyundai Kite’s human-car interaction will be controlled by the user’s mobile phone to offer customers intuitive control over all the car’s functions.
