New Hyundai Prophecy Concept Car Driven With a Pair of Joysticks

Automaker Hyundai has unveiled its latest Prophecy concept car, produced with the aim of creating a minimalist, clutter-free experience for drivers – a principle the company calls “Optimistic Futurism.”

The brand boldly claims the sporty silhouette of the concept, combined with its short overhangs and prominent rear fascia, creates the “ultimate automotive form.” The showcar rides on a new platform for electric vehicles, which allows for the use of “pristine surfaces and pure volume in combination with aesthetic harmony and functionality.”

“We have brought to life yet another icon that establishes a new standard for the EV segment as well as pushing Hyundai’s design vision to even broader horizons,” SangYup Lee, director of Hyundai’s design center, comments. “A part of that expansion is what we call Optimistic Futurism, a design concept embodied by Prophecy. With Optimistic Futurism, our aim is to forge an emotional connection between humans and automobiles.”

The Prophecy is envisioned as an autonomous machine and there’s no traditional steering wheel inside the cabin. Instead, there’s a pair of joysticks that provide “a completely new yet reassuringly familiar and intuitive driving experience.” This advanced human-machine interface also allows the driver to control other functions of the car easily and safely, claims the automaker.

Being a modern concept car, the Prophecy is, of course, full of screens. There’s a dashboard-spanning screen up front, and the rest of the interior is actually ringed with screens, too. What’s more, the dashboard also flips up to reveal another smaller screen underneath.

Of course, as a highly futuristic concept car, we don’t expect to see the Prophecy in the production line any time soon (or ever), but it’s nonetheless an interesting indicator of where Hyundai will take its cars next.
