Watch | Hyundai’s concept vehicle ‘TIGER’ can walk on four legs

What was once shown on screen, in the movie Transformers, is now reality with Hyundai’s concept vehicle. The ultimate mobility vehicle (UMV) can transform into a four-legged walking machine from a four-wheeler. It can carry different payloads while traveling across challenging terrain.
