As our world is getting worse in pollution, one of the way of reducing pollution is by recycling.Hyundai had planned to use recycled material for the Blue Will Concept car. Read the full story from Thestar below.
Recycled Material Used In The Making Of Hyundai Blue-Will
Hyundai’s BLUE-WILL plug-in hybrid concept car is set to make its debut at the Seoul Motor Show early next month.
The vehicle’s bodyshell features the use of eco-friendly material in many areas – recycled PET soft drink bottles were used to make the material for the headlamp bezels, while bio-plastics also feature heavily, PLA for the interior while PA11 finds its way on to the engine cover; these materials are made from plant extract rather than fossil fuels and are bio-degradable.
The BLUE-WILL concept will be powered by an all-aluminium Gasoline Direct Injected 1.6l engine which is coupled to a CVT drivetrain and a 100kw electric motor which is at the heart of Hyundai’s parallel hybrid drive architecture.
The Lithium Ion Polymer battery pack is neatly bundled with the fuel tank under the rear seat to maximise luggage space. The vehicle’s panoramic roof glass area integrates dye-sensitised solar cells which can generate power for the batteries from the sun, without impeding visibility.
Hyundai will be the first automaker in the world to apply LIP-based energy in a mass production vehicle when the Elantra LPI Hybrid goes on sale in Korea in July.
