The concept has wheels like any other vehicle, sure, but they're mounted at the end of articulated robotic legs, meaning it can both drive like a auto a walk like a living creature.
"This technology goes well beyond emergency situations", added Suh.
Built on a modular vehicle chassis, Elevate vehicles can swap out robotic attachments for different situations, like a auto stuck in a snow ditch climbing its way back up to the road. The legs, which can lock in any position, even fold up under the body, so on roads the Elevate can drive along on its wheels like a normal vehicle.
Officially, Hyundai says this first-ever vehicle with moveable legs would be ideal for disaster relief, the legs not only providing height and ground clearance but suspension as well, making it the first Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV).

Each wheel is powered by an electric motor, and they can be braked to work as feet as the vehicle walks either like a reptile or mammal, depending on the situation.
But bring on the impossible terrain and those robotic legs with five degrees of freedom come into play, making it capable of both mammalian and reptilian walking gaits, allowing it to move in any direction, with the wheels also rolling when necessary.
However, Hyundai says that the need to design the Elevate concept is more humanitarian.
The invention, unveiled onstage at CES, comes out of Hyundai's Cradle venture arm, which is also a research incubator for robotic and augmented transportation tech. This allows Elevate to drive at highway speeds just like any other vehicle.
However, what makes the Elevate literally stand out is the ability to scale a five foot wall, step over a five foot gap, walk over diverse terrain, and achieve a 15 foot wide track width, all while keeping its body and passengers completely level. 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, level itself, and allow their wheelchair to roll right in.
