Hyundai Does Its Part To Thwart Zombie Invasion

Forbes -- Korean automaker Hyundai unveiled its latest model – the unlikely Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine – at an unlikely venue Tuesday night, Comic-Con International 2012 in San Diego.

I'm sure that style goes well with all the blue LED stuff on the dash.

How about developing an electric vehicle? If that zombie apocalypse happens, nobody will be left to run the petroleum refineries.

I'd be interested in seeing who'd actually buy one of these. . . Maybe the Department of Defense.

A simular equipped Jeep or Ford F-150 would do a better job. I mean the Elantra doesn't even come with 4X4 or AWD. How is this well equipped Elantra supposed to get traction driving on the remains of zombies while driving through a large group of the undead? I mean zombies have persistence, pursuing success, they will do everything to get a(head).
