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 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 Originally made from discarded wooden soap crates, today they boast more modern and sophisticated designs.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.
