The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has recently pulled off the wraps off its latest creation, the so-called i30 Connectivity Concept.

According to the car manufacturer, the Hyundai i30 Connectivity Concept has been unveiled in Germany and the model has been designed in order to highlight the company’s technical side. The Hyundai i30 Connectiviry Concept is coming with NFC (Near Field Communication) and this can allow drivers to lock or unlock the doors by placing their phones on a tag of the window.

“Hyundai’s Connectivity Concept showcases the brand’s philosophy of making tomorrow’s technology accessible to a wide range of customers. With this technology, Hyundai is able to harness the all-in-one functionality of existing smartphone technology and integrating it into everyday driving in a seamless fashion”, said Allan Rushforth, the Hyundai Motor Europe chief operating officer.

In the cabin, the Hyundai i30 Connectivity Concept is getting navigation information, music, contacts and more, streamed from the phone on the 7-inch display. The phone can also be recharged wireless. The car manufacturer isn’t planning to put the model into production and this is just a glimpse of what will come from Hyundai over the following years. The technologies will be applied to the company’s models as early as 2015, as the automaker is saying.
