    Elevate is the first Ultimate Mobility Vehicle, which Hyundai blended robots and electric cars, allowing it to cross the world's most challenging terrain.

    The concept has been in development for several years and was first unveiled to the public Tuesday. Hyundai expects the vehicle will be used one day to save lives in response to natural disasters.

    "What if a car designed with robotics could save lives in disasters," said Hyundai executive John Suh, who heads a research arm off the company devoted to innovation.
    Elevate is designed with four mechanical legs that can act like feet. It can roll along on extended legs or retract them to be driven like a car.
    "Extended legs could also be used to climb or crawl while keeping the passenger compartment level," according to David Byron of Sundberg-Ferar, an industrial design consultancy, which is working with Hyundai on the project.

    "This design is uniquely capable of both mammalian and reptilian walking gaits, allowing it to move in any direction," Hyundai said in a statement.
    This vehicle can travel at high speeds. The propulsion comes from four electric motors mounted inside each wheel hub.

    I don't know why but for some reason I thought the legs would look similar to the AT-AT Walkers from Star Wars.
