  • Hyundai has presented at the Geneva Show the series model i30 hatchback and Hyundai QarmaQ

    concept.The crossover Concept, which has been announced in a sketch published a few weeks ago by

    Hyundai, brings an important change of approach in what concerns the materials used in its

    composition.While the traditional cars use metal and glass, QarmaQ is assembled from plastic

    materials made by GE Plastics. The Hyundai QarmaQ concept is the result of the cooperation

    between the 2 companies and brings, as novelty, a vista of the kind that only a view from the

    chopper gives, because of the great surface of the plasticized windows from the car's body.By

    integrating GE's polycarbonate glazing wrap-around and the GE Lexan windscreens, the body weight

    of the cars is reduced by almost 50 %. A unique technology characterizes Lexan screens: Exatec

    Technology. It' s a technology through which a thin, protective layer of glass is deposited on

    the screen, which helps when protecting from scratching or effects of humidity. The material,

    much lighter than traditional glass used in automotive industry, also increases the impact

    resistance and both occupant and pedestrian safety. When talking about pedestrian safety, we can

    also mention the system that uses deformable sections under the concept's body panels, which is

    able to absorb crush energy in case a collision with a person may happen.GE Plastics' High

    Performance Thermoplastic Composite (which is used for the horizontal body panels) manages to

    also save some weight. 900 recycled plastic bottles have been used when manufacturing other body

    panels.The new concept is a showcase of 30 new technologies that will be found in the future

    Hyundai models. The car is the result of the hard work of Hyundai Motor Europe's Design and

    Technical Center and it has been engineered in cooperation with GE Plastics. It will be ready to

    roll in 2008 to 2014
