This past October, the Hyundai Motor Company proved itself once more as a leader in automotive design and innovation. The company took home three 2020 Red Dot Awards for three different concept models, including the Best of the Best design award. Hyundai has earned Red Dot awards in the past, but this is its first ever Best of the Best accolade.
Prophecy Wins Best of the Best
Since 1955, the Red Dot Awards have served as one of the most distinguished design awards in the world. There were a total of 4,170 concept designs competing in this year’s Red Dot Awards, and only 41 earned the Best of the Best title. Hyundai scored theirs with their Hyundai Prophecy concept, a gorgeous concept EV that features sweeping, aerodynamic lines and a wide wheelbase. The Prophecy concept was designed to celebrate Hyundai’s latest era of design, “Sensuous Sportiness.”
Other Hyundai Concept Winners
The Hyundai 45 concept EV and the Hyundai Neptune concept were also recognized in the 2020 Red Dot Awards, each earning a ‘Winners’ accolade. Only 188 of the 4,170 entries earned this title.
This year, Hyundai has really proven themselves as an international example of innovation and design. Although none of these concept cars are currently in line for production as of now, concept designs often serve as a foundation for future production models. At Gossett Hyundai South, we can’t wait to see how these award-winning concept cars evolve into something we can all enjoy.
