Hyundai Nuvis conceptHyundai moves close to its first hybrid with a novel new battery technology that's a little like Play-Doh.

They call the roof floating because it appears to visually, and all four occupants can be in touch with each other and the driver's information by a networked communication system. Or I guess they could just talk. And of course, we already covered what gull wing doors mean.
