GENEVA — The Hyundai Intrado concept, a compact SUV with an upgraded form of Hyundai's hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, will debut at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.

The Intrado appears to have similar proportions to the Range Rover Evoque. Hyundai released a single image of the Intrado.

Intrado takes its name from the underside of an aircraft's wing, according to the Korean automaker.

"Intrado will be the first Hyundai concept car inspired by Fluidic Sculpture 2.0," said Hyundai in a statement referring to its design language.

The concept was styled by the automaker's European design team.

The SUV is built around a lightweight structure, using a process that Hyundai said "has the potential to change the way cars are constructed in the future."

The hydrogen fuel-cell drivetrain is smaller and lighter than that powering the Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell.

"Hyundai Intrado envisages a motoring future that encapsulates the efficiency and freedom associated with flying," said Peter Schreyer, president and chief designer of Hyundai, in a statement. "Intrado shows that future cars can be relevant and exciting."

Edmunds says: Hyundai takes aim at the Nissan Juke and Range Rover Evoque with a fascinating new concept.
