2011 Hyundai Curb Concept

The Curb concept also serves as a testbed for a number of Hyundai's Blue Link features that were unveiled recently at CES—like remote lock/unlock, remote vehicle start, stolen vehicle recovery/slowdown, valet and curfew features, and various alerts, as well as Turn-by-Turn Navigation, traffic conditions, gas prices, weather info, and an Eco-Coach feature.

Hyundai gives the example: "Inside the Curb, a driver could be listening to their favorite station on Pandora, cruising the city and get a phone call from a friend. Using Blue Link, the caller's location shows up as a Point-of-Interest (POI). The friend tells the driver that he just discovered a great band playing at a local club and invites him to come. His location then becomes the destination for the turn-by-turn directions."

The Curb is a concept, so there are no production plans; but the given its very relevant place in the market, it's looking like much more than a pipe dream.
