The Hyundai Elevate Walking Car Concept is specially made to deal with the natural disasters that can happen at any moment. Its wheels with robotic legs provide the users to drive, walk or even climb over the most treacherous terrain. When a natural disaster occurs anywhere, many times the rescuers won’t be able to reach at certain places to save lives, but this can be done with the Hyundai’s Elevate car that reaches in the severe places in the natural disasters
According to the need for natural disasters such as forest fire, earthquake, hurricane, or flood, Hyundai has designed its first-ever lifesaver. It does more than the traverse terrain even than an off-road vehicle.
This vehicle can go from four-wheeled electric vehicle to a walker, climbing stairs or outdoor terrain, with a nearly unlimited range of movement from its extended legs.
John Suh, Vice President and Head of Hyundai Cradle said, “When a tsunami or earthquake hits, current rescue vehicles can only deliver first responders to the edge of the debris field. They have to go the rest of the way by foot. Elevate can drive to the scene and climb right over flood debris or crumbled concrete.”
“This technology goes well beyond emergency situations. People living with disabilities worldwide that don’t have access to an ADA ramp could hail an autonomous Hyundai Elevate that could walk up to their front door, the level itself, and allow their wheelchair to roll right in. The possibilities are limitless.”

The elevate passengers will be comfortable during the full engineered vehicle tackles with the rough terrains, the enhancements include:
- The vehicle has robotic legs with five degrees of freedom, in-wheel propulsion.
- It walks in the mammalian and reptilian style in the omnidirectional motion.
- It can climb a five-foot vertical wall.
- Step over a five-foot gap.
- Non-back drivablemotorsenable the legs that can be locked in any position.
- Modular EV platform.
This is the future of vehicular mobility. “By combining the power of robotics with Hyundai’s latest EV technology, Elevate has the ability to take people where no car has been before, and redefine our perception of vehicular freedom,” said David Byron, design manager, Sundberg-Ferar.
“Imagine a car stranded in a snow ditch just 10 feet off the highway being able to walk or climb over the treacherous terrain, back to the road potentially saving its injured passengers –this is the future of vehicular mobility.”
