Eco-friendly Technology

  • We are reducing the amount of CO2 emitted by our vehicles and increasing fuel efficiency
  • We are minimizing the energy loss of our vehicles by maximizing the efficiency of powertrains that generate and transmit the kinetic energy of automobiles
  • We are reducing air resistance through aerodynamic designs and making the bodies of our vehicles lighter
  • We are developing regenerative braking energy as well as solar energy regeneration technologies based on solar cells
  • We are aggressively promoting eco-driving systems to enhance mileage as well as reducing the fuel consumption of our vehicles

In 2005, Hyundai opened the Eco-Technology Research Institute on the Southern edge of Seoul. Since its founding, the center has concentrated efforts on developing next generation green vehicles and environmental technologies with a focus on: the development of core technologies for fuel cell and hybrid vehicles for mass production; the development of technologies to reduce exhaust emissions and to improve fuel efficiency; enhancements in vehicle recycling; investigation into alternative materials to heavy metals; and the development of technologies to reduce air and water pollution during the manufacturing process and to improve the recycling of waste materials resulting from energy production.

In response to the growing problem of environmental pollution, Hyundai is developing lighter vehicles to reduce exhaust emissions and eco-friendly materials that are also safer for people. As a vehicle’s fuel consumption and exhaust emissions are proportional to its weight, much effort is being placed on making automobiles lighter. Lighter automobile weight also leads to decreased rolling resistance, less vibration and noise, and less inertia, which in turn result in enhanced steering stability and power performance.

Lighter weight can be achieved through the development of optimal design technology, component performance maximization technology, and application of light materials technology. Of these, application of light materials such as new, high strength steel materials, aluminum, magnesium, plastics and composites can produce the most significant results. Optimal materials are selected, applied and tested according to the function and location of each automotive component.
