Hyundai Motor has opened the Hyundai MotorStudio brand space in Busan, South Korea. The studio is expected to display Hyundai Motor’s design work, as well as a variety of art installations. One of the first exhibits was the Hyundai Pony Heritage Concept, a homage to the mid-70s Pony.

Hyundai Pony is the first mass-produced Korean car. It was launched in 1975. The production electric car Hyundai Ioniq 5, presented in February, has a design inspired by the historical model.

Now the manufacturer has decided to once again remind about his first car. Pony Heritage is a pure design exercise that is a deep tuning of the original Pony. They took a preserved copy as a basis, which was disassembled and built anew – but already on modern units and components. For example, the headlights and lanterns are LED, and foot-mounted cameras are used instead of side mirrors.

Pony Heritage is powered by an electric motor. The characteristics are not published, but it doesn’t matter – the car is unlikely to drive out often.

The interior was also re-created, but in the style of the original. The instrument cluster is a series of gas discharge indicators in the style of a lamp clock.

Hyundai Pony Heritage is built in a single copy, there are no plans for serial production.
