IAA, which stands for Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile, is all about aerodynamics. The four-door coupe measures 5,040 mm long and while the car is driven above 80 km/h, it magically stretches to 5,430 mm in length in its aerodynamic mode!

Front flaps, front and rear bumpers extend themselves, making the car longer and help the airflow better over and around the car. Even the wheels alter their cupping to improve the airflow!

Powering the car is a petrol-electric hybrid motor that produces 275 horsepower and in pure electric mode, the car can cover a range of 66 km.
