Hyundai Mobis is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Group, a South Korean multinational automotive manufacturing company. It is primarily engaged in the manufacture and supply of automotive parts and components, including modules and systems for powertrain, chassis, safety, and convenience features. The company also provides after-sales services such as maintenance and repair, and operates research and development centers for advanced technologies such as autonomous driving and connected cars.
Now, Hyundai presents this concept in a production Ioniq 5 that can do things and wonders thanks to the flexibility of its wheels. For example it can park on its side and move vertically or rotate around its axis 360 degrees.
We don't know if we'll ever see something like this in production (eg something like this would be perfect for an electric city-car), but if nothing else, electrification holds many surprises for the future.
However, in the videos below you can see how similar ideas have been around since long ago, even before World War II.
