Rock lobster? More like a crab walker. Don’t be fooled, though. This baby is no Chrysler, it’s nowhere near the size of a whale, and sadly, it won’t be able to carry 20 of your closest friends to your next beach bonfire. But wait until you hear what it can do.
While not quite as roomy as your love cabin, Hyundai’s new concept certainly knows how to get around town. The best part? It promises to end the dreaded parallel parking.
From rock lobsters to crab walkers
You heard me right. Literally, Hyundai’s new EV takes a sideways approach to city driving. This electric adventurer maneuvers in a way that would make even crabs blush. Imagine sliding effortlessly into that tight parking spot on a busy city street. No more moving back and forth and pray you don’t bang the cars in front of you and behind you. The car drove straight in sideways.

Hyundai recently shared a video of this sideways sensation, showing off the car’s “crab mode.” A feature that allows a vehicle to move sideways by controlling each wheel independently. This isn’t just a flashy gimmick; it’s a practical solution to common urban driving problems.
Crab Mode: The Future of Urban Mobility?
Now, if you’re thinking, “Didn’t I see this on the Hummer EV?” Well, you’re not wrong. General Motors did introduce a similar feature in its electric Hummer. However, Hyundai has brought this crab-walking ability into a more compact and greener vehicle. Talk about putting new interpretations on things.

Modern crab walker is eco-friendly and fun
This crab-walking quality isn’t the only reason for the car’s appeal. It’s all-electric, which means it can do wonders not only for your parallel parking skills, but for the environment as well. Hyundai hasn’t revealed specifics yet, but we can expect competitive range and charging capabilities.
While the crab-walking car is still only a prototype, it’s an exciting glimpse at what Hyundai has in store for us. It’s not just about creating efficient, environmentally friendly vehicles; they’re also looking to add some unexpected fun and functionality.
