These six vehicles turned heads at the annual Swiss extravaganza.

Hyundai Intrado

Vehicle type: Crossover
Power source: A next-gen hydrogen fuel cell system that drives a 35 kW lithium ion battery
Who designed it: Global design chief Peter Schreyer
What's cool: The project reveals Hyundai's thinking about future weight reduction and energy efficiency, with an airy layout of ultrathin, ergonomic seating.
Will it be built? Not likely. The concept is more of a vision of where Hyundai wants to take technology.
Show reaction: The European buzz was high for Schreyer's bold design statement.
