Rock Lobster? More like Crab Walker. Don’t be fooled, though. This baby isn’t a Chrysler, it’s nowhere near as big as a whale, and sadly, it won’t carry 20 of your closest friends to your next beach bonfire. Yet wait until you hear what it can do.
While not quite roomy as your love shack, Hyundai’s new concept vehicle certainly knows how to get around town. And the best part? It promises an end to the dreaded parallel parking.
From rock lobster to crab walker
You heard that right. Hyundai’s new EV takes a sideways approach to city driving, literally. This electric daredevil maneuvers in a way that would make even a crab blush. Imagine effortlessly sliding into that tight parking spot on a bustling city street. No more inching back and forth, praying you don’t tap the cars in front and behind you. This car simply sidles right in.
Hyundai recently shared a video of this sideways sensation in action, demonstrating the car’s “crab mode.” A feature that allows the vehicle to move sideways by independently controlling each wheel. This isn’t just a flashy gimmick; it’s a practical solution to a common urban driving headache.
Crab mode: the future of urban mobility?
Now, if you’re thinking, “Didn’t I see this on a Hummer EV?” Well, you’re not wrong. General Motors did introduce a similar feature in their electric Hummer. However, Hyundai’s bringing this crab-walking capability to a more compact and eco-friendlier model. Talk about putting a new spin on things.
Hyundai’s crab-walking car is eco-friendly and fun
This crab-walking feature isn’t the only thing that makes this vehicle a catch. It’s all-electric, meaning it’s not just doing wonders for your parallel parking skills but also for the environment. Hyundai hasn’t spilled the beans on the specifics yet, although knowing them, we can expect competitive range and charging capabilities.
While this crab-walking car is still just a prototype, it’s an exciting peek into what Hyundai has in store for us. It’s not just about creating efficient and eco-friendly vehicles; they’re also looking to sprinkle in some unexpected fun and functionality.
