Hyundai’s European Design Center previews futuristic soapbox

Hyundai has released a teaser image of a soapbox vehicle designed at the Hyundai Design Center Europe, with a futuristic look and a wedge-shaped silhouette.


The Hyundai Soapbox features a wedge-shaped silhouette, angular body lines, and a low wheelbase, which have some reminiscences of the 45 concept car.

Hyundai Soapbox Concept Design Preview

Hyundai has announced plans to make this project accessible for customers around Europe.

The vehicle features a gently-sloping silhouette at a 45-degree angle. Exposed wheels and a low-lying frame give it a dynamic character. The viewer can just make out long, straight lines stretching at an angle across the car’s body – a clear similarity to the concept car 45.

About the Soapbox vehicles

The term “soapbox” refers to a motorless, gravity-propelled vehicle that was traditionally raced by children on a downhill road. Originally made from discarded wooden soap crates, today they boast more modern and sophisticated designs. They are particularly popular in Europe and North America, where many soapbox derbies take place.
