South Korean automotive giant captured plenty of eyeballs at the recent Geneva Motor Show by showcasing the Hyundai Kite, an electric buggy that's a little different from other similar-looking electric vehicles due to the fact that it's an amphibious and multi-modal vehicle capable of converting into a water jet.

This electric buggy concept is equipped with a four-wheel electric hub drive to enable it to tackle solid terrain, as well as a water jet that gives it full-on jet ski functionality.

While the Hyundai Kite electric buggy is still a vehicular concept that's yet to become reality, the fact of the matter is that this vehicle is a great example of how the uniquely simple mechanical designs of electric motors are opening up new avenues in vehicular design, specifically in the amphibious vehicle sector.
