Hyundai celebrates 35th anniversary of Grandeur with “retro-futuristic” electric concept

The Hyundai Grandeur is 35 years old and it deserves to be celebrated.

Hyundai celebrated the 35th anniversary of its full-size Grandeur luxury sedan with a retro-styled electric version, the latest in a series of one-off concepts celebrating its most important historic models.

Introducing the Heritage Series EV Concept Electric, a contemporary take on a limousine from yesteryear.

The Heritage Grandeur Series blends the blocky styling of a first-generation Grandeur with a series of modern cues in a style Hyundai calls "retro-futurism."

A second screen in the center console is used to control this system, as well as various driving functions. This display also controls the most unique feature of the Heritage Grandeur series - a virtual piano, developed by musical instrument maker Samick. The armrest between the front seats hides a secret storage compartment, with a metal gear selector sticking out of the center console, and the interior is finished with a combination of wood and glossy materials. The rear cabin has also received an overhaul. Burgundy velor upholstery is complemented by nappa leather backrests and special lighting, including what Hyundai calls an “infinity mirror” surrounded by LEDs.


The Grandeur has seen its 2.0-liter gasoline engine replaced with an electric powertrain.
